Will bee pollen help gout?



I am 50 years old and I`ve recently started taking bee pollen (3/4 tsp twice daily) and feel better than I have in years. I do not have any health issues. I have a friend who is a black male, 42 years old and suffers from gout. I know bee pollen contains many amino acids including alanine, asparic acid, glutamic acid, and glycine which are natural inflammatory. Will taking bee pollen help people with gout?


While bee pollen is used for many things, there is little to support its use for gout.
