Consumed for centuries by ancient world leaders, from Chinese Emperors to Pharaohs and Queens it has been a valued substance for hundreds of years. In many ways Royal Jelly is viewed as an exclusive product, reserved for royalty.
Royal Jelly Ma’am?
Where does Royal Jelly come from and why do queen bees thrive on it? Royal Jelly is a milky substance produced by worker bees to feed their queen. Often over-fed on the jelly, it’s an essential source of nutrition throughout her life and it’s what helps her retain her crown. It’s packed with protein and even used to sustain the young in the first days of their life – just like a mother’s milk. It’s so called due to the queen’s royal status and also because of the protein in this jelly known as ‘royalactin’.
The immune boosting benefits of a royal diet
Royal Jelly is the only food consumed by queen bees and is packed full of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and trace elements. This is a substance which can be beneficial addition to any diet.
Appreciated for its ability to boost immunity, Royal Jelly is also known for:
- Containing a variety of nutrients, including protein which is essential for muscle building, repair and renewal
- Helping to lower blood pressure
- Easing the symptoms caused by PMS
- Improving the appearance of skin – when consumed and also when applied as a cream
- Reducing inflammation
Is Royal Jelly an alternative to honey?
Royal Jelly is made up of mostly of water. It is much higher in protein and lower in sugars than honey. Standard honey is made up of a whopping 80% sugar. Derived from floral nectar, honey does have many well-documented health benefits. It’s more easily sourced and more readily available, therefore widely accepted as consumable in countless ways.
Used in various recipes and dishes the world over as a natural sweetener, honey, like it’s more regal cousin, is appreciated for multiple health benefits, such as:
- Fighting any excess cholesterol
- Lowering your blood pressure
- Regulating your heartbeat
- Helping to remedy digestive issues
- Alleviating hay fever, cough, cold and sore throat symptoms
