Pine Pollen - Safety

Pine Pollen has been used consistently and continually in China throughout the past 1500 years, as documented in many Chinese herbalism texts. This long history of medicinal application highlights its safety, but the look into its safety does not stop there. Current modern research has also documented its safety. Acute and short-term toxicity tests have shown the safety of Pine Pollen and research has been done into the potential of carcinogenesis (cancer causing), mutagenesis (changes to DNA), and teratogenesis (changes to an embryo or fetus), all of which has shown Pine Pollen to be safe for human consumption.
