Recently, I recorded a bunch of new videos on specific topics about our most popular herb, Pine Pollen.
You’ll find these shown in a variety of places around our website but also figured it was worth putting them all in one place here on the blog. (We did something similar with Ashwagandha recently, you can watch them here.)
Let’s dive in with one of the biggest questions around this amazing herb, which type is best?
Pine Pollen Powder or Tincture?
As with so many things, there is NOT a clear winner. If there was we’d only offer that. Instead, the different forms, between the powders, capsules, and tincture offer different benefits.
The main thing is that we see the tincture as being stronger for its hormone boosting effects, while the powder is more balancing and provides a wider range of benefits because of all the micronutrients it provides.
Pine Pollen Benefits
As was just stated, the biggest benefits of Pine Pollen tend to be in the hormonal compartment. People tend to see benefits to sex, energy, mood, recovery and more.
Pine Pollen Side Effects
While natural herbs tend not to have bad side effects (as compared to pharmaceutical medicine), that doesn’t mean that they don’t have any. Limited people may find the following issues:
Allergies to Pine Pollen
Most people that suffer allergies don’t necessarily have it to this single pollen, but some do. This will cause minor allergic symptoms such as a runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, etc. These effects mostly come from the powder, while those that are allergic to it may still be able to use the tincture.
Sometimes the effects are too strong! This is my personal experience with Pine Pollen Tincture at this time. My hormones are working well from all the other things I do (and various other herbs). So for me, the tincture is overkill. With it, my libido increases to let’s just say… distracting levels. There’s a time and place for that but I don’t necessarily want it all the time! Others have mentioned similar effects.
Opposite of intended effects. One of the areas we see Pine Pollen’s work is in the morning wood department. But some people find they have even less than before. This is rare but does happen. Potentially it could be from using too much, or a wide variety of other factors. (See the recent survey results of how often the morning wood guarantee worked for our customers here.)
Pine Pollen Dose
People want to be told exactly what to do. But the fact is that the dosage is highly variable. It depends on you. It depends on the herb. It depends on the type of extract. It depends on many things. So there is not a single approach that works for everyone. (This is true of everything even if specific doses are listed…)
You can take a normal or maintenance dose of Pine Pollen (1/2 to 1 teaspoon per day). Or you can take the megadose (1.5 – 3 tablespoons) and everything in between.
Many people get significant benefits with this maintenance dose. But many also notice far greater results using the megadose.
The same goes for the tincture. We generally recommend one to two dropperfuls per day but know some customers go up to 8 per day.
And for women, when using the tincture we generally only recommend 1-3 drops per day.
