The Amazing Fresh Royal Jelly
The worker bees and queen bees start off their lives as the same type of egg. The determining factor which makes a worker or queen bee is, - ROYAL JELLY!: the worker bees are only fed royal jelly for only 3 days while the queen bee takes royal jelly throughout its life!
Royal jelly is so nutritious that the queen bee grows to become almost double the size and lives 40 times longer than a worker bee. Not to mention, royal jelly nourishes the queen bee so well that it can spawn eggs the equivalent of her own weight, every day, for the rest of her life.
Royal jelly has also been proven to be a very effectual and beneficial supplement for humans:
Royal jelly can prevent and fight infections
Only a small amount of royal jelly is needed to prevent and fight infections. Scientists are also finding that its range of effectiveness is very wide, spanning over hundreds of different species of bacteria, fungi and yeast.
In fact, royal jelly is so effective that it can overcome bacteria that have mutated to become multi-drug resistant (many antibiotics are no longer effective in killing these bacteria species). Scientists are seriously testing and researching royal jelly as one solution to the increasing problem of antibiotic resistance.
Royal jelly is heart protective
The main problems identified by researchers in relation to heart health are:
- High triglycerides
- High LDL cholesterol
- Low HDL cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Internal inflammation
Many studies have confirmed that royal jelly can control and counter all the above problems therefore protecting your heart, no matter how old you are, thus preventing atherosclerosis and other degenerative heart diseases.
Royal jelly can also normalize irregular heart beat (arrhythmia), especially when it is caused by an adrenaline rush. This means that it prevents stress upon your heart and helps you keep calm during an emergency or stressful period.
Royal jelly prevents and controls diabetes
Diabetes is an increasing problem in our society since refined carbohydrate foods, such as white rice, white bread and white sugar are preferred by most people. These refined carbohydrates have the highest GI level among foods, therefore causing your blood sugar to spike tremendously every time you consume them! Long term, this constant spike leads to reduce sensitivity to blood-sugar regulating hormones and ultimately...DIABETES.
Diabetes is really dangerous and greatly impairs your quality of life. It is “BYE-BYE TO SWEET FOODS” and long term medication or injections. It also leads to blindness, stubborn infections (that can lead to gangrene and amputation of limbs), heart diseases and serious complications in surgeries.
Royal jelly contains chromium, sulphur, vitamin Bs and some proteins that help regulate and normalize your blood sugar levels by supporting the conversion of sugar to energy. Together, these effects prevent and control diabetes.
Additionally, this anti-diabetic effect and the heart protective effect mentioned above prevents metabolic syndrome as well!
Royal jelly improves your blood quality
Researchers have found that royal jelly has the ability to increase the number and quality of red blood cells in anaemic patients. It can also maintain normal blood pressure in humans; increasing blood pressure to normal when it’s too low and lowering blood pressure when it’s too high.
Royal jelly is anticancer
Cancer occurs when your cell’s DNA mutates to create an abnormal cell. This mistake happens every day as our bodies generate new cells but our immune systems is usually able to find and kill these mutated cells. It is when our immune system misses these rouge cells that they become cancerous in our bodies.
Royal jelly has impressive anticancer effects against both the above mentioned problems:
- It can protect your cells’ DNA from mutation or damage, therefore preventing the formation of cancer cells in the first place.
- It also prevents the growth and spreading of cancer cells by stimulating your immune system to seek out and kill cancer cells.
Royal jelly regulates your immune system and controls allergies
Royal jelly contains proteins, fatty acids, hormones, enzymes, vitamin E and A which help our immune systems fight infections by boosting the production of antibodies in our bodies and stimulating the immune to seek and destroy harmful foreign substances that make us sick.
Some unique proteins and fatty acids in royal jelly also prevent autoimmune problems (for example multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus, celiac disease and rheumatoid arthritis, among others). Royal jelly is especially effective in preventing allergies, which is a hypersensitivity of the immune system.
These anti-allergic and the anti-inflammatory effects mentioned above also help to control and prevent diseases such as asthma and eczema.
Royal jelly is anti-inflammatory
Inflammation is defined by redness, swelling, increased heat and sometimes, pain. It indicates that the body is fighting something harmful or trying to heal itself. Inflammation can be isolated to a small area (where there is an injury) or widespread throughout the body (like when you have a fever). It is long term, widespread inflammation that usually causes the most problems. This typically happens when we:
- are experiencing a stressful period
- always eat unhealthily
- lack rest
- are fighting a chronic disease, or
- are exposed to too much pollution or toxins.
Long term inflammation causes premature aging and a myriad of degenerative diseases (for example arthritis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, severe allergies, asthma, bronchitis, slow healing and many more).
Royal jelly has antioxidants to neutralise free radicals that cause internal inflammation. It also contains some unique factors that suppress the inflammatory process, therefore preventing and improving all types of inflammatory problems.
Royal jelly is anti-aging and promotes beauty
Since ancient times, royal jelly is believed to be able to prolong life and prevent premature aging. These anti-aging and beauty benefits of royal jelly lies mainly in the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects explained above. It protects the cells’ DNA, reduce oxidative stress and inflammatory damage to slow the occurrence of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and boost skin radiance.
Royal jelly promotes healthy reproductive system
Royal jelly nourishes the reproductive system to boost the quality of sperm and ovum throughout the reproductive stages in both men and women. It can promote hormonal balance, boost levels of hormone that are lacking in the body and increase libido. These effects lead to improvements in fertility.
Additionally, it can help reduce menopausal symptoms and prevent osteoporosis in menopausal women.
Royal jelly protects and regulates your nervous system
Royal jelly has been traditionally known to improve memory, prevent senility, increase energy, reduce anxiety and calm hyperactivity. All these amazing benefits are achieved by its ability to nourish brain and nerve cells. It contains an impressive amount of acetylcholine (an essential neurotransmitter in the nervous system) that improves mental activity and nerve communication in your body. Royal jelly can also protect from nerve damage and boost nerve repair or regeneration.
Think all these benefits are impressive? There’s more!
The benefits of royal jelly seem to be endless. Researchers continue to find more and more benefits of royal jelly as they continue their studies, such as its ability to help balance all the body systems, increase energy, respiratory functions, muscular capacity and strength, improve malnutrition, depression, anorexia and recovery after surgery.
Royal jelly has also shown beneficial effects such as increased appetite and red blood cells, improved growth and better adaptation to stress situations (ie. sickness, disease, surgery, etc.) in premature, malnourished and normal infants and children.
Suddenly, the term “fit for a QUEEN” becomes an understatement in light of all these incredible benefits, doesn’t it?
