Harmonic Arts Bee Pollen – top the Golden Milk
Helps to relieve stress – Because of bee pollen’s nutritional and tonic properties, it improves blood supply to nervous tissue, boosting mental capacity and strengthening the nervous system that may be weakened by stress. That makes it one of the most effective natural stress relievers. This will help you to relax enough to fall asleep and stay asleep.
Bee pollen is also a local analgesic, in other words it relieves pain brought on by stress or injury so that you can sleep through the night uninterrupted by pain.
