Royal Jelly | Apis mellifera

Properties: Honey is perhaps the most popular product created by bees. Thousands of these insects form one hierarchical and well-organized society that is able to create the sweet and sticky substance that we call honey. However, this is not the only thing they are capable of producing. Slightly less known, yet actually more important from the perspective of natural medicine, is royal jelly. As the name suggests, this substance is produced to provide nutrition to the hive’s almighty queen. But why in the world would it be so precious for humans? 

Asian practitioners of natural medicine have used royal jelly for centuries. They noticed that this substance benefits the immune response triggered by the presence of pathogens. Thereby, it prevents the expansion of viral and bacterial infections and limits the spread of inflammation. Immunity is not the only area that royal jelly supports, though. It also has an important influence on the male reproductive system. There, it helps to boost the production of testosterone which directly improves libido. Besides that, more testosterone translates to a faster accumulation of muscle tissue and better performance during workout. That’s about it for men. What about women? As it turns out, they too can surely benefit from the supplementation of royal jelly. Among numerous effects, this natural substance supports hormonal stability, especially the main female sex hormone – estrogen. This is particularly important during menopause. 

Apart from these effects, royal jelly effectively strengthens the general condition of the organism. Importantly, it lowers the level of cholesterol which, in excess, can lead to multiple diseases, including atherosclerosis. Therefore, royal jelly positively influences the functioning of the cardiovascular system. What is more, it stimulates the production of natural antioxidants and thereby helps to detoxify the organism. Noteworthy, people who regularly supplement royal jelly report increased levels of energy and motivation. Thus, this substance can be used to support the therapy of chronic fatigue or to neutralize the symptoms of physical exhaustion. All in all, royal jelly can effectively regenerate the organism and strengthen its general condition. The ancient herbalists believed that it promotes longevity. Modern research results confirmed that these statements weren’t far from truth at all, and this mysterious substance produced by bees does indeed benefit humans too.

Occurrence: Honey bees (Apis mellifera) are hymenopterous insects belonging to the Apidae family. They are able to fly thanks to the two pairs of wings made of transparent membrane. On the third pair of their legs they carry baskets for collected pollen. They are very useful and hardworking creatures. They collect nectar and pollen, which is their food, and at the same time they pollinate insect-pollinated plants. Plants that provide them with raw materials are known as “honey-bearing”. As a result of the work of bees, honey, wax, royal jelly, propolis (bee putty) and bee pollen are produced. Each of these products has its own properties and is valued in many cultures. An extremely interesting phenomenon in the life of honeybees is a special signaling dance performed by the collecting bee in the nest after discovering a new source of nectar. One type of bees, the so-called African honey bees (Apis mellifera scutellata), are particularly known for their high aggressiveness. Sometimes, they are nick-named killer bees.

Royal jelly is produced by honey bees (Apis mellifera). This creamy substance is secreted by young worker bees. It is used to feed newborn larvae in the first three days of their lives and the queen – during her entire reign. In traditional Chinese medicine, royal jelly is used to promote longevity and improve general health. Although these properties have been known for centuries, scientists picked up the topic only in the middle of the XX century. In 1953, the French beekeeper dr Alain Caillas from Orlean “discovered” royal jelly. Subsequently, he made it famous by describing its healthy properties in his book titled “Bees – the fountain of youth and vitality”. There, he stated that royal jelly increases the immunity of the organism and benefits its general strength with performance. However, we ought to mention that the first scientist who looked at the role of royal jelly in the lives of bees was… Aristotle.

Biochemistry: Royal jelly is exceptionally rich in nutrients. On average, it contains around 60% water, 12% sugars, 12% protein, 6% lipids and 5% organic acids. The protein fraction of royal jelly (including mainly albumin and globulin) is composed of 18 to 25 amino acids with as many as 9 exogenous (that must be supplied to the body with food). Its lipid fraction, on the other hand, consists mainly of fatty acids (saturated and unsaturated): phospholipids, EFAs, sterols and waxes. Royal jelly also contains certain amounts of hormones (estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone) as well as acetylcholine. On top of that, there are over 20 macro- and microelements (mainly phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper and manganese) with vitamins (mainly from group B and C) and inositol.

Fun fact: One of the oldest bees preserved in amber is a worker bee of the Trigona prisca species found in New Jersey (USA). It is estimated to be around 70 million years old. Another one is the Melittosphex burmensis bee found in 2006 in a mine in the Hukawng Valley (Burma). It might even be 100 million years old.

How does Royal Jelly | Apis mellifera work?

Regulates the immune system: Bioactive compounds found in royal jelly have immunomodulatory properties. They inhibit the development of some bacterial strains, viruses (such as herpes), and fungi. Hence, they support the organism in the fight with infections. What is more, they stimulate the natural defense mechanisms of the body by increasing the production of white blood cells that eliminate pathogens. Additionally, the results of scientific studies prove that royal jelly inhibits the secretion of the so-called inflammatory cytokines. In this way, it helps to control the spread of inflammation which could potentially be harmful to bodily tissues. Last but not least, it might bring relief when allergic reactions occur.

Enhances physical performance: Unique, rich composition of the royal jelly makes it a natural tonic that strengthens the entire organism. Multiple research studies repeatedly demonstrated that it can increase the level of mental and physical energy. Therefore, it helps to reduce the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Moreover, it has been observed that it accelerates recovery after surgeries. This is because it stimulates the healing of soft tissues and bones. This effect is beneficial for sportsmen too. Royal jelly can improve the regeneration capacity of the organism, including the muscle fibers after intense training. Since it also increases the level of testosterone, this supplement helps to accumulate muscle mass and therefore increase strength.

Supports sexual functions: The results of clinical trials have proven that royal jelly significantly increases the libido in men. Volunteers who supplemented this substance reported higher frequency of sexual intercourses than the control group treated with placebo. This effect is probably due to the 22% increase of testosterone density. Scientists have also demonstrated that supplementation improved the quantity and quality of sperm cells while protecting them from destructive free radicals. Women can benefit from the supplementation too. Royal jelly contains fatty acids that can mimic the functioning of estrogens. Thereby, they improve hormonal balance which is especially helpful during the menopause period.

Improves general health: Traditionally, royal jelly has always been believed to bring about longevity. The results of modern scientific studies confirmed this opinion to be true. Royal jelly definitely helps to keep the cardiovascular system fit and healthy as it decreases the blood level of cholesterol (especially its bad fraction LDL). Thus, it prevents cholesterol from accumulating on the walls of blood vessels which is important to keep them in a good condition. What is more, it detoxifies the organism supporting the proper functioning of the liver and prevents its premature aging. Bioactive compounds found in royal jelly stimulate the elimination of free radicals and therefore protect fragile cellular structures from damage. Last but not least, royal jelly promotes the secretion of collagen in the skin which improves skin elasticity and helps to maintain youthful appearance.
