Bee pollen is said to strengthen the immune system through its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are used to deactivate free radicals in the body. Free radicals are byproducts of oxygen that can damage cells and are linked to many degenerative diseases, especially those associated with aging.

Bee pollen is suggested to help counteract the effects of radiation and environmental pollutants that weaken the immune system, supporters say.
