What is Royal Jelly?
Jelly is a substance of complex chemical structure produced by the young
nurse bees as larva food. Although it is not quite as well known as bee
pollen, royal jelly equals pollen in its salutary effects.
nurse bees make royal jelly, it is a secretion from glands on the tops
of their heads. For 2-3 days, royal jelly is the only food given to all
young larvae in their maturation process, while for the queen larvae, it
is the specific food for their whole life period. During the 3 days in
which the worker bee larvae are fed on royal jelly, they reach the
maximum development; their weight multiplies about 250 times. The queen
(fed only on royal jelly for her entire life) reaches maturity 5 days
earlier than the worker bees; and, when she is fully grown, her weight
is double that of the working bee. The span of the worker bee's life is
about 35-40 days; while the queen lives 5-6 years and is extremely
prolific. She is fertilized once, and from that moment on can lay as
many as three thousand eggs a day during the season. As incredible as
this may seem, she can lay that many eggs for five years. Any creature
that has that amount of energy and vitality has to be respected!
concentrated food is not just useful for the bees. It contains
remarkable amounts of proteins, lipids, glucides, vitamins, hormones,
enzymes, mineral substances, and specific vital factors that act as
biocatalysts in cell regeneration processes within the human body.
some of the elements found in royal jelly are in microgram quantities,
they still can act supremely with co-enzymes as catalysts or can act
synergistically. (That is, the elements' action combined is greater than
the sum of their actions taken separately.) Royal jelly is rich in
protein, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C, E, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin,
inositol and folic acid. In fact, it contains seventeen times as much
pantothenic acid as that found in dry pollen.
