Royal Jelly Benefits
Royal Jelly is a substance that is secreted by the honey bee. It is used to feed the larvae and the adult queen. Royal Jelly is made up of 60-70 percent water, 12 percent protein, 12-15 carbohydrates and 5-6 percent lipid. It also has vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid and trace amounts of vitamin C. The recommended serving of royal jelly is between 500 and 3000 mg per day.
Researchers have been studying Royal Jelly for quite some time and have found that it has many health benefits. Below are some of the health benefits of Royal Jelly:
Lower cholesterol level
High cholesterol is a condition that affects nearly 40 percent of the adult populations. If it is left untreated, it can cause a stroke and/or heart attack. There was a study done that involved two groups of volunteers. Half of the volunteers were given six grams of royal jelly while the other half were given a placebo. The results of the study were that the volunteers who were given the royal jelly were able to reduce their total cholesterol and LDL by several points.
Helps aid female fertility
Infertility is a problem that affects approximately 10 percent of women. Ovulatory dysfunction is the most common cause of female infertility. Royal jelly can help boost a woman’s fertility by increasing the quality of her eggs and improving her overall reproductive health.
Eases the symptoms of PMS
Mood swings, bloating, headaches and fatigue are some of the most common symptoms of PMS. Premenstrual syndrome, which is also referred to as PMS, is a condition that affects over 50 percent of women. There has been evidence to suggest that royal jelly can help ease some of the symptoms of PMS.
Can help treat bacterial infections
Antibiotics are a class of medication that is commonly prescribed to treat bacterial infections. Royal Jelly contains 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid or (10-HDA), which is a natural antibiotic.
Has anti-inflammatory properties
Inflammation is a natural process that occurs when the body detects a harmful stimulus. Chronic inflammation can lead to a number of health problems if it is left unchecked. Royal Jelly has anti-inflammatory properties.
Can help slow down the aging process
Most people look forward to living longer, but no one wants the wrinkles, age spots and fine lines that come along with getting older. Royal Jelly can help slow down the aging process. It has been shown to boost collagen production and promote healthier skin. Royal jelly can also help wounds on the skin heal faster when it is applied topically.
Lower blood sugar
Diabetes is a condition that affects roughly eight percent of the population. The key to controlling diabetes is to keep one’s blood sugar within a healthy range. Royal jelly has been shown to help lower blood sugar. There was a study done in Germany that involved 20 volunteers. The volunteers underwent an oral glucose tolerance test and were given a 20 grams of royal jelly. After they were given the jelly, they underwent a second oral glucose tolerance test. The results of the study were that the participants’ blood sugar was much lower after the oral glucose tolerance test.
