Royal jelly and health
As you probably know honey can be used as food, but it can also be used for its medical properties. In this article we will just speak about a part of bees’ production: royal jelly.
But first what is royal jelly?
Royal jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used in the nutrition of larvae. First, it’s secreted from the glands in the heads of nurse bees. Then, with this jelly, nurse bees will feed larvae that are in the alveoli. It’s in these alveoli that beekeepers will extract the royal jelly (still with the larvae). Then they will pull out the larvae to keep only the jelly.
What is royal jelly made of?
The royal jelly is composed of different nutrients. Most of the components are carbohydrate, especially fructose and glucose, which represent 15 % of the jelly. Then, royal jelly is composed of 13 % to 19% of protein, which reinforces muscles and bones. There are also lipids, minerals, amino acids, acetylcholine and vitamins B.
What are benefits of royal jelly ?
Now we know what royal jelly is, we will speak about its benefits for health.
To begin royal jelly helps to maintain the immune defense mechanism. Secondly, it helps diminish the signs of old age, and finally it relieves menopause disorders. Some people think that royal jelly improves physical and intellectual performance and reduces bad cholesterol, but it has never been proven by scientists.
How to use royal jelly ?
You can simply use royal jelly by applying it on your face after you have cleaned your skin with clear water. You just have to let it rest during 10 min, and then to rinse your skin and it's done. You can do this every week. However, you can also add one teaspoon of royal jelly to your usual moisturizing cream. These two tips will allow you to prevent aging and to keep your skin safe, clean and moisturized longer.
