One of the most valuable gifts of nature is Royal Jelly.
Royal Jelly, which is produced by honeybees, is used to nourish and sustain the queen bee. The queen bee receives Royal Jelly throughout her entire life span up of eight years. She rules the hive and may lay as many as one quarter of a million eggs in one season alone. Worker bees do not receive Royal Jelly except for the first three days of their lives. They live only from two to six months. The egg from which the queen bee hatches is identical to all the others. This fact has led researchers to the conclusion that her longevity is attributable only to nutrition.
Royal jelly has been found to have a beneficial effect on the overall vitality of the human body, but particularly the reproductive system. Researchers have analysed Royal Jelly and found that it contains complete proteins, several types of natural sugars, unsaturated fatty acids, and a number of enzymes, and is a rich source of pantothenic acid, nucleic acid, and Vitamin B6.
In fact, Royal Jelly is one of the richest sources, per weight, of the Vitamin B complex in a natural form. Analysis has shown that Royal Jelly contains up to six times the amount of pantothenic acid found in brewer's yeast and liver. Pantothenic acid has been able to increase the life span of laboratory animals by over 200%, while at the same time producing increased stamina and endurance.
Pantothenic acid is an antioxidant, a substance that prevents the abnormal oxidation of cells by destructive chemicals known as free radicals. Free radicals are produced by consuming rancid unsaturated oils, drinking chlorinated water, smoking, inhaling carbon monoxide, being exposed to radiation, consuming chemical food additives, and from bowel irregularities that release toxic gases into the bloodstream. The presence of B5 is necessary to convert choline into the neuro-transmitter acetylcholine, which involves memory, mental focus and reproduction. Pantothenic acid is also the catalyst for the production and release of the indispensable adrenal hormones. Common B5 deficiency symptoms are adrenal exhaustion, hypoglycaemia, fatigue, irritability, hair loss, disorders of the nervous system, skin problems and premature aging.
Royal Jelly contains between 18 to 22 amino acids, including all the essential ones, depending on the source of the pollen - resulting in a complete protein food. As well as containing Pantothenic acid, Royal Jelly has been found to be a good source of the B complex vitamins as well. Nucleic acids are also present, and these determine the rebuilding process of each cell.
Science has determined that the regular ingestion of DNA-RNA substances has special rejuvenating and restorative effects on the internal glands, organs, and memory and thought clarity. It helps alleviate premature aging, senility, wrinkling, adrenal gland dysfunction, and organ atrophy and conditions related to nucleic acid deficiency. Royal Jelly contains the "Intrinsic Factor", a co-protein necessary to absorb Vitamin B12 which is required for red blood cell formation and synthesis of DNA-RNA.
Royal Jelly contains every essential nutrient necessary to support human life. It is the synergistic action of all these elements working together that results in the amazing benefits of Royal Jelly. People use it both for its preventative benefits or as a medicine for those who suffer from injury, stress or illness. Its concentration of precious and stable elements makes it a super supplement of high biological value, unique in all the plant animal kingdom.
Royal Jelly is a perfectly balanced supplement for men and women who wish to maintain vigor and stamina in all stages of life, particularly during and past middle age, for women experiencing menopausal symptoms and, since it is a concentrated natural food source, for athletes and body builders who require optimum physical stamina.
