What is Royal Jelly
Royal Jelly is one of history’s oldest natural health and beauty aids, used for thousands of years because of its rich amino acid content, and spectrum of vitamins and minerals. It is said the ancient Egyptians believed royal jelly would ensure that the Pharaoh had a long and healthy life.
Reports also suggest that Cleopatra used it to keep herself beautiful, BioBees have used the strongest formulations of Fresh Royal Jelly, in its purest state, to create their premium range designed to enhance and maintain good health, and encourage anti-ageing.

Food Fit for a Queen
Royal Jelly is, without doubt, food fit for a Queen. Royal jelly is responsible for creating a Queen bee from bee larvae. The Queen bee is almost double the size of a normal sized bee and she can live up to forty times longer from the rest of the hive.
Harvesting the royal jelly is a slightly different process from that of harvesting honey. First of all you have to remove the Queen Bee from the colony. As bees’ cannot survive without a Queen, honey bee larvae have to be introduced to the hive. These larvae (about one day old) are inserted into a particular kind of wooden cell. Worker Bees’ will then attempt to feed them with royal Jelly which they secrete from the glands in the hypopharynx in order to produce a new Queen. The cells become filled with royal jelly after a couple of days or so. This is then removed and the process is repeated.
What is Royal Jelly composed of?
Royal jelly is extremely rich in a group of fatty acids called phospholipids. Perhaps the most well known of which is lecithin. Royal jelly contains more lecithin than any other food. Lecithin is composed of Inositol and Choline. Choline is categorised as a lipotropic, indicating that it works by helping the liver metabolise fat, which is later used by the body for additional energy.
Inositol has an effect on nerve transmission and plays a vital role in the chemical reactions in our body that are associated with the production of glucose. The presence of inositol is crucial in the proper development of cell membranes. It assists in the transportation of fats throughout our bodies. These two vital substances are often classified as B-vitamins.
Royal jelly is a rich source of naturally-occurring steroids. Almost unbelievably, fifty of them have so far been identified, including testosterone and oestrogen. These hormones are highly bio-available when sourced from Royal Jelly.
Royal jelly contains Amino Acids
Amino acids are derived from proteins and are the building blocks for them. All proteins are broken down by the body into single amino acids by the digestive enzymes in either the stomach or in the small intestine and then reassembled into the specific new proteins by other enzymes within the body. The cells within the digestive tract can only absorb single amino acids, known as free form, and very small chains of two or three amino acids called peptides.
Royal jelly contains 18-22 amino acids, eight of which are essential – meaning the body cannot synthesise or make them, so they must be obtained from the diet.
The eight essential amino acids are;
lsoleucine Leucine Lysine Methionine Phenylalanine Threonine Tryptophan Valine.
A combination of more than 100 amino acids joined by peptides finally forms a protein. A component of Royal Jelly that has recently been isolated has been named Royalactin. This single protein alone, it seems, is responsible for turning an ordinary bee into a Queen bee. Royalactin induces the same effect on fruit flies, marked by increased weight and ovary size.
Royal jelly contains many Vitamins & Minerals
Vitamin A, Vitamin B’s, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E and Folic acid. Minerals are literally the ‘stuff of life’. Without them, no metabolic pathways within the body can work correctly. 28 minerals and trace elements have thus far been identified in royal jelly. These include; magnesium, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, sulphur, vanadium, zinc, potassium, iron, etc. For those of a scientific bent, the full 28 elements (periodic table) listing is; Al, Ba, Sr, Bi, Cd, Hg, Pb, Sn, Te, Tl, W, Sb, Cr, Ni, Ti, V, Co, Mo) and minerals (P, S, Ca, Mg, K, Na, Zn, Fe, Cu and Mn).

What are the benefits of Royal Jelly?
Royal jelly is perhaps the most potent, highly concentrated food available. A very important point is that the nutrients are absolutely natural. The word ‘natural’ is much touted in supplement circles. Many health supplements are synthetic, often called ‘nature identical’. They have the same molecular structure but they do not and cannot have the same efficacy by a huge margin. Therefore provides comprehensive bio-availability. This means that the body can utilise the power- packed significant range of nutrients to their fullest extent.
Given our lifestyles, it is extremely difficult to get even a portion of the nutrients that the body requires on a daily basis. Royal Jelly provides substantial amounts of these nutrients in a simple and easy to take preparation. Ultimately we are what we eat and absorb. Junk in equals junk out! It is very simple, the finer the foods we ingest the finer the body we can build. Bioceuticals BioBee’s® royal jelly helps to fulfil this requirement in a delicious super-food.
Uses Of ROYAL JELLY
Uses and evidence for for Royal Jelly are not only word of mouth, but they also are backed by dozens of investigative tests & trials.Two substances found in are believed to contribute to its antibiotic properties: These are gamma globulin and 10-hydroxydecanoic acid (l0-HDA). When combined as they are in our biobees royal jelly they make an effective infection-fighting, immune-stimulating duo.
Other health benefits include helping women tackle the symptoms of PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) and morning sickness, as well as promoting fertility in both men and women.

10-hydroxydecanoic acid (l0-HDA)
The higher the 10-HDA content of Royal Jelly the faster you will benefit from taking it. This chemical is so important that the more 10-HDA content in Pure Royal Jelly, the higher the cost of supply. Pure Royal Jelly with a 10-HDA content of 2% has just become available to us. Companies who claim a higher content that this are misinformed. 10-hydroxydecanoic acid ( l0-HDA) exhibits both anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
Gamma globulin is a class of protein found in blood plasma. There are different types of gamma globulins, but the most important are immunoglobulin’s also referred to as antibodies. Gamma globulins have proven, in some cases, to be an effective therapy in the treatment of hepatitis A infections, and also measles. Antibodies combine with bacteria and viruses to destroy them. They are an important part of the immune system.
Royalactin has only recently been discovered, it is a unique (as far as we know at this time) compound within Royal Jelly.
Masaki Kamakura of Toyama Prefectural University in Imizu, Japan, stored it at 40 °C for 30 days, feeding it to bee larvae at intervals. Its regal effect gradually weakened, suggesting the key ingredient was decaying. He then fed larvae deactivated jelly with each batch laced with a different compound that was subject to decay. Only one caused the larvae to turn into queens: a protein Kamakura calls Royalactin. To understand how Royalactin works, Kamakura added it to the diet of fruit fly larvae. This made them grow larger and lay more eggs, as in bees. Kamakura found that Royalactin works by switching on the gene that codes for Egfr, a protein found throughout the animal kingdom. Egfr stands for epidermal growth factor receptor. *This suggests a pre-existing mechanism was repurposed to produce the bee caste system, says Francis Ratnieks of the University of Sussex in Brighton, UK. When insects first formed eusocial (of or pertaining to a form of animal society) colonies queens and workers must have been physically identical, he says, and the distinct castes came later, created by Royalactin or something like it.
Researchers at the Ontario Agricultural College, Guelph, Department of National Health & Welfare, Ottawa, and the University of Toronto, conducted a study on Royal Jelly's inhibition of cellular disruption. It has been shown to inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokines. The less you have of these the less pain you will experience in a given condition So, certainly we can see the science behind Jelly which confirms what people have known & experienced over the years - that is has every right to be called a super-food that has incredible properties.
