Royal jelly consists of an emulsion of proteins, sugars, lipids and some other substances in a water base. Proteins make up about 13% of royal jelly. Most of the proteins comprise a family called major royal jelly proteins. Royal jelly also contains vitamins, such as pantothenic acid, minerals and phytosterols. Neopterin, or 2-amino-6- (1,2,3-trihydroxypropyl)-4 (3H)-pteridinone, was initially isolated from royal jelly. Neopterin is also found in humans, and, although its precise role is not known, it appears to play an important role in the human immune system.
One protein in royal jelly called royalsin possesses antibiotic properties against gram-positive, but not gram-negative, bacteria. About 11% of royal jelly is made up of sugars, such as fructose and glucose, similar to those found in honey. Lipids comprise about 5% of the substance and consist mainly of medium-chain hydroxy fatty acids, such as trans-10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid, which is also thought to possess antimicrobial properties.
Researches on Royal Jellyâ€™s Main Benefits:
Hormone production & Balance
Royal Jelly contains not only a glucose-oxydase, but also the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, as well as a gamma-globulin, which could play a role in the resistance to diseases. Studies are showing that royal jelly may stimulate the reproductive system. One study with ewes showed that supplementation with royal jelly increased the amount of ovulation and pregnancy in the animals that received it. Women who battle menopause symptoms will be interested in the results of a study conducted in Denmark. There, they gave Melbrosia (royal jelly mixed with bee and flower pollen) to women going through menopause, and 1/3 of the women who participated reported relief of their symptoms, including headache, vaginal dryness, and fatigue.
Anti-biotics and Immunity
One group of researchers has reported that a royal jelly extract has potent antibiotic effects against gram-positive bacteria, but not against gram-negative bacteria. Royal jelly has exhibited immunomodulating effects in an animal model, stimulating antibody production and immunocompetent cell proliferation.
Anti-inflammatory & Healing
It has been claimed, anecdotally, for some time that royal jelly has anti-inflammatory effects and wound-healing properties. These claims were given preliminary support in a study of streptozotocin-diabetic rats. The researchers were looking for a hypoglycemic effect from royal jelly; none was found, but the researchers noted that royal jelly showed some anti-inflammatory activity and that it shortened healing time in desquamated skin lesions.
Anti-Aging -Skin & Cellular Rejuvenation
Royal jelly contains a unique blend of bio active amino acids and 5000 enzymes has been known throughout the ages to produce a rejuvenating effect on the human cells and skin.
Most notably are the effects of moisturizing and strengthening the skin cell matrix thereby alleviating wrinkles, promotes radiant and slowing cellular death.
Why Fresh Royal Jelly is better?
In its freshest and natural form Royal Jelly contains more than 5000 enzymes of which many are not studied or identified, essential amino acids, B-complex and the unique 10-HDA, in a 66+%water base.
Freeze drying or encapsulation involves the removal of the natural moisture level within royal jelly, such removal will compromise the natural moisture suspension required by the enzymes which will very likely result in a decline in enzyme-count and overall potency. Royal Jelly contains many nutritional substances such as protein, carbohydrate, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. They are the main source of food for bees. These substances can easily become degraded and rotten. High temperature is the major factor for degradation. Like other foods, Royal Jelly can be easily contaminated during processing. They have to be frozen so its fresh for a long time.
