Royal jelly is the crown jewel among beehive products. A rich, creamy, white, and opalescent liquid, royal jelly is produced by worker bees and used exclusively for the nourishment of the queen bee, which is recognized for her longevity (compared with regular worker bees - several years vs. just 1-2 months), energy, and stamina for reproductive capability.
Royal jelly is one of the natural foods revered as a fountain of youth since the dawn of history. The healing power and health benefits of royal jelly are still one of the most sought-after subjects in modern time.
It is extremely high in nutritional value and is popular as a skin rejuvenator.
Royal jelly is high in proteins, rich in natural hormones such as pheromones, rich in amino acids including essential amino acids, B group vitamins, and vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E.
Aspartic acid accounts for about 16 of royal jelly's protein content. Gelatin enhances its effect in keeping youthful skin. Royal jelly also contains sugars, sterols, phosphorus compounds, essential fatty acids, and acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. It also contains nucleic acids, water, trace ingredients including calcium, copper, potassium, silicon, and sulfur.
