  1. I believe you get your bee pollen from the farmer’s market but do you have a brand that you would recommend from Whole Foods or an online health store. Thanks !

  2. I love this as all my children are getting over a horrible cough/croup right now. One question: If we don’t have fresh turmeric on hand how much powdered turmeric should we substitute in?
