the health benefits of Royal Jelly. . .
Royal Jelly is a substance secreted by worker bees and fed to bee larvae. The larvae of most bees get to eat Royal Jelly for the first three days of their life, but the Queen Bees have the privilege of eating Royal Jelly their entire lives. Royal Jelly is a protein rich food source and contains over twenty amino acids, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C, biotin, folic acid, inositol, niacin and pantothenic acid, as well as enzymes. Though Royal Jelly is obviously a very nutritious dietary supplement, there is much debate in the medical establishment and alternative medicine communities. Supporters of Royal Jelly use claim that it is effective for treating anorexia, anxiety, arthritis, atherosclerosis, exhaustion, gout, hepatitis, kidney disease and ulcers. It has also been claimed to retard the ageing process, fight depression and promote sexual health.
Detractors point out that none of these claims has been substantiated through scientific tests, but all agree that the nutritional value of Royal Jelly is beyond dispute. The rich combination of enzymes, amino acids, proteins and vitamins is at the very least a healthy addition to one’s diet, and further research into the benefits of Royal Jelly will no doubt shed light on it its other positive effects on health.
