100% Natural Honey: Royal Jelly

What is Royal Jelly?

Royal jelly is a creamy substance found in beehives. It is the food which sustains the queen because it is the most nutrious and most potent honey a mother bee needs to sustain her daily living. Because Royal Jelly is produced in small amounts, its extraction is quite difficult depending on the type of hive being used. Moreover, getting to the queen’s honey is also difficult because of its small area within the hive.  Since royal jelly can easily spoil, many honey collectors mix it with raw honey or lyophilize the creamy substance (i.e turn it into a powder by freezing).

What is Royal Jelly Used For?

Royal Jelly is used as a dietary supplement, an herbal remedy for various aliments and as a sexual enchancer for men. It is also reportedly able to increase fertility in women.
