Royal jelly is made by nurse bees who chew pollen and mix it with secretions from glands in their head. Royal jelly is the sole food of the queen bee, allowing her to live 50 times longer than regular bees.
Chemical Composition of Royal Jelly
Royal Jelly contains approximately 12% protein, 5-6% lipids and 12-15% carbohydrates. It's Vitamin B content is high, and with 17 amino acids, including all 8 essential amino acids, it is a nutritious hormone-rich substance with a wide spectrum of potential benefits. Royal Jelly also contains around 15% aspartic acid, which is important for tissue growth, muscle and cell regeneration.
Can Man Recreate Royal Jelly?
Evidently not. Studies have uncovered some of the nutritional properties of this substance, but much remains undiscovered. Dr. Albert Saenz of the Pasteur Institute in Paris wrote:
"Numerous studies ... demonstrate the existence of fractions in Royal Jelly which correspond to 97 percent of the substance, plus an undermined fraction whose very presence could explain the remarkable and mysterious properties of Royal Jelly."
"Here's yet another product of the beehive with a touch of the bee's magic in it. I suppose some day science will figure out what these unidentifiable elements are and some researcher will try to manufacture them. Until then, the only place to get these mystery nutrients is from the bees."
Fresh Royal Jelly has a yellowish colour sour smell and to be taken once per day before food with half ( 1/2 ) or one ( 1 ) teaspoon, it will be easier to take with warm water or mix with honey due to the sour taste.
You could also apply it onto facial area or body as mask and wash off after 30 mins.
It is not advisable to use metal containers as they can taint the bees' product with toxic iron and lead.
**Note: Fresh Royal Jelly must be kept or stored in cold place in order to maintain freshness and it will be sold with cooler foam.
