Understanding the Nutritional Benefits of Bee Pollen
If your bearded dragon is a picky eater, you may be online right now searching for any ideas to get your beardie to eat his vegetables. One increasingly popular solution is to use bee pollen. You may be skeptical: Is it safe for bearded dragons to eat bee pollen?
The answer is yes. As bees fly from flower to flower, pollen collects on their bodies. Beekeepers collect the pollen using a trap—entirely safe and not harmful to the bees—at the entrance points to the hive. This pollen is packed with vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, and other nutrients, and is typically sold as granules or in powder form. While scientists are still researching the health benefits of bee pollen, it is generally believed that pollen contains high antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. This can boost your reptile’s immunity.
There are two main ways to feed bee pollen to your bearded dragon:
- Gut load your bearded dragon’s feeder insects with bee pollen. If you add bee pollen to your roach chow, you will ramp up the nutritional value of your feeder insects. Your beardie will benefit from these nutrient-packed feeders.
- Add bee pollen directly to your bearded dragon’s food. Dust bee powder or granules on vegetables or greens to give your pet the added health benefits. This is particularly helpful if your dragon is a picky eater!
