10 Benefits of Royal Jelly
If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll have already seen that Bee Propolis and Bee Honey have substantial health benefits.
However, these aren’t the only bee products that will help you to lead a happier and healthier life. We also offer Royal Jelly.
Royal Jelly is a gelatinous substance that bees produce to feed both their young and the hive’s queen bee. It has a number of benefits, of which we’re going to look at 10 in this article.
Benefit #1 – It’s Loaded with Nutrients
Royal Jelly contains a unique mixture of fatty acids and protein that make it an extremely nutritious foodstuff.
On top of that, it contains several B-vitamins, including folic acid and riboflavin. There are also some trace minerals.
All told, this makes Royal Jelly an ideal supplement for helping people to deal with nutritional deficiencies.
Benefit #2 – It Gives Your Immune System a Boost
Many of the products that we offer at The Blessed Seed can give your immune system a boost. Royal Jelly is no different. When combined with Black Seed Oil, this jelly can help your body to fend off all manner of ailments.
The fatty acids present in the jelly have antibacterial properties. This supports your immune system in its battle against the many bacteria that can cause illness. It also boosts the immune system’s response so that it’s quick to go into action as soon as unhealthy bacteria make their presence known inside your body.
Benefit #3 – It’s an Anti-Inflammatory
Internal inflammation can cause all sorts of health conditions. Even minor cases of inflammation can cause discomfort and a general feeling of unwell.
Royal Jelly’s combination of fatty acids, amino acids, and phenolic compounds lend it anti-inflammatory properties that make it useful for combating all sorts of health conditions.
On top of that, it’s an antioxidant. That means it can help your body deal with oxidative stress and may provide some protection against free radicals.
Benefit #4 – Skin Repair
Many skin conditions cause some form of scarring, with severe acne being among the biggest offenders. Of course, even the smallest cuts and scrapes can lead to scarring if you’re unfortunate.
There’s some evidence to suggest that you may be able to use Royal Jelly to help the wounds that lead to these scars heal faster. In the case of skin conditions, its anti-inflammatory properties can soothe your condition and help you to handle flare-ups.
However, there’s also some evidence to suggest that topically applied Royal Jelly can boost collagen production. This makes your skin stronger and more able to heal after undergoing damage.
Benefit #5 – Helps With Dry Eyes
If you’ve ever sat squinting at a computer screen, you know just how much discomfort dry eyes can cause you.
Strangely, there’s some evidence to suggest that Royal Jelly can help you to keep your eyes in good shape. You don’t have to apply the jelly topically either. Consuming it orally seems to have a beneficial effect too.
One study found that the jelly can increase tear secretion, which keeps your eyes moisturised. This may prove especially useful for those who don’t enjoy using eye drops.
Benefit #6 – It Can Support Cancer Treatment
Many of the medical treatments for cancer actually cause damage to your body in an effort to heal it. Chemotherapy, for example, can cause a lot of discomfort and may even lead to heart damage.
One study found that administering Royal Jelly seems to have a beneficial effect for those undergoing cancer treatment. Most importantly, it seems that the jelly can reduce the damage that such treatments do to major organs.
The jelly may also protect you against mucositis. This is a painful cancer treatment side-effect that leads to ulcers forming in your digestive tract.
Benefit #7 – It May Combat the Signs of Ageing
As mentioned earlier, Royal Jelly is an antioxidant. This means that it can protect against the damage that free radicals cause to your body.
However, there’s also evidence to suggest that the jelly can improve cognitive function and even enhance life expectancy. At present, the only clinical trials that support this claim have been done on rats. But it’s likely we’ll see human trials begin soon.
Beyond this, the promotion of collagen production that the jelly offers means it can make your skin stronger and more elastic. This protects against wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
Benefit #8 – It Regulates Blood Sugar
This benefit comes down to a combination of the jelly’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties again.
There are several animal studies that suggest using royal jelly provides vital protection for organs such as the pancreas and liver. It may also be able to promote insulin sensitivity in the body. As a result, the jelly may be able to protect you against Type-2 diabetes. This also suggests that it could be a useful supplement to many dietary programs.
Benefit #9 – It Helps With the Menopause
When women undergo the menopause, a lot of hormonal changes occur in their bodies. Typically, this leads to a reduction in hormone circulation that can lead to a variety of mood-related issues, including anxiety and depression.
One study of royal jelly found that it seems to be able to reduce the signs of anxiety in post-menopausal women. It may also be able to remedy the pains that often occur due to the menopause.
Benefit #10 – It Contains Proteins That Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure puts you at risk of a number of ailments, including stroke and heart disease.
There’s some evidence to suggest that the special proteins in Royal Jelly can relax the smooth muscle cells in your veins and arteries. This leads to a reduction in blood pressure due to superior arterial function.
The Final Word
As you can see, Royal Jelly is one of the most effective natural curatives available. When taken alongside Black Seed Oil, it can protect your body against a wide range of health issues.
