Some of the health benefits of royal jelly include its ability to prevent certain types of cancer, lower blood pressure, relieve sexual infertility, lower cholesterol levels, protects the liver, reduces inflammation, heals digestive disorders, prevents premature aging, help in weight loss efforts, and increase circulation.
While most people know that honey comes from bees, most people don’t know that there is another type of nutritious type of food that comes from the same insect. Royal jelly is actually excreted from the top of a bee’s head and is collected in what’s called a queen cell (a special honeycomb). When bee larvae are first born, they are fed royal jelly directly from the workers in order to get a healthy, nutritious boost so they survive their first few days of life. However, after 3-4 days, larvae no longer consume royal jelly. However, for potential queen bees, royal jelly is far more important. In fact, queen larvae are put into these special queen cells and are surrounded by royal jelly. This is what helps them to develop their “queen morphology”.
There is a single protein, royalactin, that causes the phenotypic change in the queen larvae. It causes them to develop ovaries and grow to a far larger size than normal bees. Furthermore, royal jelly has been known to extend the life span of a queen more than 20 times longer than that of a normal bee.

Also, since bees are such good workers, a single colony can store up to 500 grams of royal jelly over a 5-6 month period. A queen couldn’t possibly consume that much, which is why a market developed for this nutrient supplement. Royal jelly is commonly found in diet or organic food stores. You can often find royal jelly at farmers’ markets as well. In terms of use, royal jelly usually comes in granules or powder form and is commonly added to salads, smoothies, yogurt, or some other cold beverage or dish. It is important never to heat royal jelly, because it will destroy all of the enzymatic properties and some of the proteins that make it so beneficial for human consumption. Although it is not widely known, it is packed with health benefits for those who choose to add it to their diet.
Nutritional Value of Royal Jelly
Royal jelly contains a rich variety of nutrients including minerals like calcium, copper, iron, phosphorous, silicon, sulfur, and potassium, as well as a wealth of B-family vitamins, biotin, inositol, folate, nucleic acids, gamma globulin, and 17 different amino acids, including the 8 essential amino acids that the human body cannot produce, and must therefore get from their diet.
Health Benefits of Royal Jelly
Blood Pressure: Research has revealed that some of the proteins found in royal jelly have a direct effect on blood pressure levels in humans. This protein hydrolysate can have a long-lasting impact on blood pressure. When this is combined with the potassium found in royal jelly, which also acts as a vasodilator to reduce stress on blood vessels and the heart, royal jelly begins to look like a great way to prevent a variety of heart conditions.
Cholesterol Levels: Although most people associate sweet, delicious foods with unhealthy cholesterol, that isn’t the case with royal jelly. In fact, research has shown that consistently adding royal jelly to your diet can cause a notable drop in your “bad” cholesterol levels, thereby helping you prevent atherosclerosis and subsequent cardiovascular issues like heart attacks and strokes.
