Fresh Royal Jelly
is an extremely nutritious, pasty substance which is milky white in colour, with an acidic odour and a slightly bitter and acidic taste, and is produced by the worker bees from the pollen to feed the queen bee.
Since ancient times, the Royal Jelly
has been used as a natural and energetic alternative medicine. Its content of protein, vitamins, minerals and phenolic compounds, increase energy, reduce stress and improve the immune system.
Bees feed mainly on nectar and pollen from flowering plants with which they produce Royal Jelly
. Royal Jelly is mainly secreted by the glands of the worker bees between the sixth and twelfth day of life, and is an essential food for the development of the Queen Bee. It is a white, viscous substance secreted from the hypopharyngeal and mandibular glands of worker bees. It is also known as a â€œsuperfoodâ€œ, consumed only by the Queen Bee.
Royal Jelly also feeds and nourishes the larvae that come out of the Queen Bee in their first 2-3 days of development. Royalactine is a protein present in Royal Jelly that enables the transformation of a larva into a queen bee. In addition, Royal Jelly contains 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid (HDA), which has got some very interesting properties. This super food is the major reason for the Queen Beeâ€™s longevity in comparison with the rest of bees. Royal Jelly is widely used as a nutritional dietary complex for healthy well-being, and has been traditionally used for thousands of years.
