Royal Jelly is one of the most nutritious foods available. The substance (produced by bees) is rich in nutrients and has a host of therapeutic benefit. The nutritional value of Royal Jelly include minerals, vitamins (trace amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K); B-Vitamins (Vitamin B1, B2, and B6, Niacin, Biotin, and Folic Acid); amino acids, protein (12.5%), fatty acids (5%), enzymes, lipids, and monosaccharides (11%).
The substance is anti-viral, anti-biotic, and anti-bacterial in nature. It helps boost the immune system, promotes mental alertness, increases energy levels, and boosts stamina and endurance.
The substance counters aging through its panthothenic acid content, a key B vitamin that stimulates the adrenal glands, increases resistance to infection, and helps relieve stress.
In addition, the substance acts like a natural hormone, stimulating both male and female sex glands and revitalizing endocrine gland function. It can help for male impotence, sterility, and female frigidity; and acts an antibiotic against viruses, especially those that cause flu and herpes.
Royal Jelly also balances the skin’s acid mantle, improving skin tone and managing problems like eczema and neuro-dermatitis.
Royal jelly is a honey bee secretion, secreted from the glands of worker bees in the hypopharynx, that is used in the nutrition of female larvae and adult queens. When worker bees decide to make a new queen (because the old one is weakening or was killed) they choose several small larvae and feed them with copious amounts of Royal Jelly in specially constructed queen cells which triggers the development of queen morphology, including the fully developed ovaries needed to lay eggs.
The substance is fed to all bee larvae, whether they are destined to become drones (males), workers (sterile females), or queens (fertile females). After three days, the drone and worker larvae are no longer fed Royal Jelly, but queen larvae continue to be fed this special substance throughout their development. The jelly is collected (by humans) from each individual queen cell (honeycomb) when the queen larvae are about four days old. The substance is collected from queen cells because these are the only cells in which large amounts are deposited.
The component of Royal jelly that causes a bee to develop into a queen appears to be a single protein that has been called ‘royalactin.”
It is only jelly laced with ‘royalactin’ that causes the larvae to become queens. The honey bee queens and workers represent one of the most striking examples of environmentally controlled phenotypic polymorphism. In spite of their identical clonal nature at the DNA level, they are strongly differentiated across a wide range of characteristics including anatomical and physiological differences, longevity of the queen, and reproductive capacity. Queen bees constitute the sexual caste and have large active ovaries, whereas workers have only rudimental inactive ovaries and are functionally sterile.
A female larvae destined to become a queen is fed large quantities of Royal Jelly; this triggers a cascade of molecular events resulting in development into a queen.
