Royal Jelly is the crown jewel among beehive products, and the worst tasting. Royal jelly is a rich, creamy, white and opalescent liquid that produced by worker bees and used exclusively for the nourishment of the queen bee and eggs no older than two days. Living on a diet of exclusively royal jelly, the queen bee lives for 3 -4 years, unlike the worker bees who live about six weeks on average. Royal jelly is always fed directly to the queen or the larvae as it is secreted (from glands in the nurse bees’ heads). It is very difficult to collect and put into little bottles, which is why these little bottles of royal jelly are not cheap.
Scientists discovered that royal jelly is a very rich source of proteins and contains eight amino acids, important fatty acids, lipids, glucides, sterols, phosphorous components as well as acetylcholine and specific vital factors that act as biocatalysts in cell regeneration processes within the human body. While acetylcholine is needed to transmit nerve messages from all to cell. It also contains vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C, E, niacin, biotin, inositol, folic acid and pantothenic acid, recognized for its ability to reduce stress levels. It also supplies the minerals, calcium, iron, potassium, copper, silicon and sulfur.
Royal jelly has some amazing medicinal properties. It is both an antibiotic and bactericide. Royal jelly also is a powerful anti-oxidant. Some of the many reported benefits of royal jelly include helping to maintain lower cholesterol, promote mental alertness, improving energy levels, fortification of natural immune system, enhancing sexual desire, and, when used topically, to restore youthfulness and improve skin beauty. RJ should be stored in the fridge and taken in small doses, in the amount of a quarter teaspoon a day, alone or mixed in honey.
