Royal jelly is a nutrient-dense mixture of protein. All larvae eat it in small amounts, but one chosen larva is fed nothing but royal jelly its whole life. That larva is the one that turns into the queen An average worker lives for a few months, but a queen lives for 3-5 years, producing over 2,000 eggs every day, and up to 1,000,000 in its lifetime. Talk about upgraded performance. (No, it probably won’t quadruple your lifespan too, unless you’re a bee…).
What Makes Royal Jelly... Royal!
Packed With Natural Nutrients
Royal jelly has a lot more nutrients than regular honey, and contains B vitamins, folate, biotin, inositol, pantothenic acid, acetylcholine, collagen (making it an excellent addition to your skincare routine), and vitamins A, C, D, and E, plus a wide variety of minerals, amino acids, and enzymes. It also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties (also helpful for skin)
Improves Memory And Learning Processes
Royal jelly supports neurogenesis- the growth of new brain cells – by stimulating neural stem cells, neurotransmitters, and neuroprotective glial cells. Royal jelly is also the only food that contains 10-HDA, a fatty acid that may enhance overall cognitive capacity. Royal jelly’s concentration of phospholipids helps with impaired cognitive learning, awareness, and motor function; it also may improve short-term memory and learning processes.
