Royal Jelly is the only food the Queen bee consumes. She is 40-50% larger than the worker bees in her hive and she can live for 4-5 years and can lay 2,000 or more eggs per day. Worker bees only live for one season and they produce the Royal Jelly by blending bee pollen and honey with a special nectar secreted from glands that are on top of their head. It contains amazing amounts of all essential amino acids, beta sitosterol, all essential fatty acids including 10-HDA, acetylcholine, antibiotic components, carbohydrates, collagen, enzymes, hormones, lecithin, gamma globulin, minerals, nucleic acid, pantothenic acid, proteins, vitamins and more. All bee products are high in the entire B Vitamin group, C and D in smaller amounts and many other components. Its aroma is slightly sharp, flavor is slightly bitter and acrid, consistency is a thick cream and its color is pale yellow.

Royal Jelly is a creamy white nutritive substance synthesized by the worker bee for the sole nourishment of the Queen bee. The Queen is hatched from the same egg as the worker bee but is selected to receive a diet of pure royal jelly, while the common bee feeds off honey and other substances around the hive. Royal jelly transforms the queen, enhancing her physical performance, longevity and reproductive capability. Much human interest has been shown in this substance throughout history and many modern studies have been performed to try to establish its nutritional content and its health promoting effects. Despite these extensive studies, the exact chemical make-up and clinical efficacy of royal jelly is still something of a mystery. Royal jelly contains vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids. It has a high B vitamin content and 17 amino acids, including all 8 essential amino acids. This high amino acid and B vitamin content may be what gives royal jelly its potency. It contains around 15% aspartic acid, an important nutrient in metabolism and detoxification. Many people take royal jelly for energy and stamina. It is often used to nourish and rejuvenate the hair, skin, eyes and nails. Other common uses include sexual vitality, weight regulation, rejuvenation and recovery from illness, immune enhancement, cardiovascular health, high cholesterol, improved mental condition and memory, as well as arthritis and diabetes. It is available in many commercially prepared products or can be obtained fresh, straight from the hive. It is often combined with super-tonic herbs such as Ginseng, Dang Gui and Schizandra.
