Royal jelly is a milk-like substance secreted by bee that provides nutrition to developing larvae as well as the queen bee. Fresh royal jelly has a bright white color and a gelatinous and viscous taxture, which becomes compact over time. It is partially soluble in water and has a low ph level of 3.5-4.5, which gives it its distinctive aroma and bitter taste. The great nutritional value and properties of royal jelly are due to its composition, consisting mainly of water, proteins, amino acids, sugars, lipids and minerals.
It is sold as a dietary supplement to treat a variety of physical ailments and chronic diseases. It helps oxygenate the cells and strengthen the body’s immune system and just like honey, it also improves asthma rates. Being a source of B-complex vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B7, B8, B9, B12) and in smaller amounts of vitamins C, D, A and E, it helps boost metabolism and improve blood circulation. Royal jelly has a direct effect on the adrenal glands leading to an increased secretion of adrenaline that can be cardio-protective. Additionally, it helps promote collagen production and decrease levels of free radicals that cause aging.
The daily dosage recommended is 150mg-180mg in the morning, 15-30 minutes before breakfast for 1 month to get the best results (pause for the next 3 months and then resume). Place it under the tongue until dissolved. In this way, royal jelly is directly absorbed into the blood. If swallowed, the digestive system function significantly reduces (up to 50%) its medicinal effects. Follow this treatment 3-4 times a year.
