Does Using Honey for Allergies Work?

1 min read



Have you heard that honey cures pollen allergies?

This is one of many allergy myths that need busting.

Honey is not actually an anti-allergic agent. While honey can contain trace amounts of pollen, it’s different pollen than what causes allergy symptoms.

Bees gather pollen from flowers, flowering trees, and bushes, which then makes its way into their honey. Most allergies, however, are caused by non-flowering trees, grasses, and weeds — plants that aren’t pollinated by honeybees and instead through the wind!

Even if allergen-causing pollen were to be picked up by bees, your digestion process would alter the pollen protein, remove it, or break it down so significantly that there wouldn’t be enough for your immune system to become desensitized to it.

Immunotherapy treatments are the only way to naturally and effectively treat your seasonal allergies. Immunotherapy treatments like Nectar Allergy Drops train the body to tolerate allergies, building an immunological response that reduces or eliminates symptoms over time.
