While small and seemingly insignificant, bees actually provide us with a whole host of beneficial nutrients in the form of honey, propolis, beeswax and royal jelly. In fact, it’s a well-known fact that because bees pollinate roughly 70% of the crop species that feed 90% of the world, extinction would mean that the earth would eventually die off!
While substances like honey and propolis are widely celebrated across the world, royal jelly is less well known. Royal jelly originates from beehives and is the main source of food for the colony’s queen. Royal jelly contains a significant number of proteins that help cells to grow and reproduce. Like its cousin propolis, royal jelly contains antibacterial properties that when taken, can help protect the immune system from common issues such as coughs, colds and the flu.
Royal jelly is also a great nutrient for your skin and helps to stimulate the production of collagen. As we age, the production of collagen slows down dramatically in our body, resulting in loose, saggy and wrinkly skin. The production of fresh collagen helps to protect against the aging process by providing our skin with the nutrients it needs to retain its firmness, hydration and elasticity.
While other bee products may be more popular, we recommend not overlooking the wonderful benefits of royal jelly. Our Royal Jelly supplement is ideal for daily use and suitable for adults of all ages.
