What is Royal Jelly?

Royal Jelly is a white, creamy substance produced by young worker bees. This rich food is produced by their hypopharyngeal glands and is fed briefly to all honey bee larvae and to the queen bee through all her growth stages, for life.

By feasting solely on Royal Jelly, a queen bee will grow to ¼ inch larger than her workers, twice the weight and she will live 40 to 50 times longer.  It is believed that the royal jelly protein ‘royalactin’ is responsible for aiding development of the queen’s reproductive system. Royal Jelly also enables the queen to lay up to 2000 eggs a day! She’s a very busy bee!  

Why Eat Royal Jelly?

As little as a ¼ teaspoon a day of Royal Jelly may provide you with increased stamina, stimulate your immune system, improve your ability to handle stress, alleviate insomnia, help to keep good skin condition and help regenerate bone growth. In some cultures Royal Jelly is taken to improve fertility, virility and increase ones lifespan.  Scientists are still finding new and exciting benefits of Royal Jelly.
