Health Benefits of Royal Jelly

What is Royal Jelly? Royal Jelly is sticky jelly like liquid, produced in hypopharyngeal glands, in head of worker honey bees. Royal Jelly is used to feed adult queen honey bee and larvae.

What is royal about Bee Royal Jelly? When bees want a new queen, they choose larvae and feed them with abundant amount of royal jelly in specially constructed queen cells. This natural royal jelly stimulates development of queen morphology in the selected larvae, including the fully developed ovaries needed to lay eggs. With the effect of bee royal jelly, the queen bee lives 3-5 years and shows high fertility. Without sufficient bee royal jelly other larvae become worker bees.

Other names for Royal Jelly are Apilak, Gelee Royale, RJ and Queen Bee Jelly
