What you need to know: Royal jelly is a unique substance made by worker bees to nourish the queen bee and developing bee larvae. It is a rare and complete food, providing all the nutrients needed to support growth and development, which is why it is prized by superfood lovers everywhere and used to boost beauty, deeply nourish, and to treat an array of conditions ranging from high cholesterol to tumor development.
Why you should try it: Royal jelly is not only a nutrifying agent, but in preliminary research, it has been shown to stimulate the growth of nerve cells and influences the expression of D.N.A. Studies show royal jelly is likely the determining factor in the development of a larvae into a queen bee, which leads to royal jelly’s use as a reproductive tonic. Alternative practitioners have had great clinical success using royal jelly to promote pregnancy, especially in women with infertility issues. Need we say more?
Let’s get together: A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, and that is exactly what we are going to do with royal jelly. Due to its less-than-pleasant flavor on its own, we recommend mixing your dose of royal jelly with (what else?) raw honey. Believe us, it’s the way to go. Another thing to remember is that royal jelly is a very delicate substance, easily damaged by heat, and therefore should always be purchased frozen or refrigerated. Quality is everything when looking to ensure results.
