Royal Jelly is a gelatinous secretion from the glands of worker honey bees
that is fed to the queen bee. This substance is believed to be
responsible for the queen bee's longevity and fertility. (The queen bee
grows 42% larger than the worker bee, lives five to seven years and lays
over 2000 eggs per day).
Enriching Bee Factors Royal Jelly is standardized to contain a minimum
5% 10-HDA (10-Hydroxy-2 Decenoic Acid), the substance believed to be the
essence of Royal Jelly, and the factor responsible for the queen bee's
size and fertility. 10-HDA and other fatty acids found in royal jelly
are strongly antibacterial and antifungal.
RP Scherer, a reputable supplier of Royal Jelly, says that 10-HDA "is
the acid that is assayed to determine the concentration of lyophilized
royal jelly...Until recently, a method of analysis was not available and
therefore, it was quite difficult to confirm the validity of the
concentration claims of royal jelly sources." Royal jelly can be diluted
so the strength of royal jelly is measured by its 10-HDA content. A
fresh, potent Royal Jelly product will have a measurable percentage of
10-HDA on the label.
Royal Jelly contains all the B-complex vitamins, including high
concentrations of vitamins B5 and B6, minerals, enzymes, hormones, amino
acids and vitamins A, C, D and E. Royal jelly also contains
acetylcholine, a substance that allows messages to travel from one nerve
to another. It has been used for centuries as a nutritive tonic, to
enhance immunity and may be especially helpful for those with bronchial
asthma, liver disease and pancreatitis, insomnia, ulcers, skin
Note: Royal jelly is very delicate and can rapidly lose potency unless
it is correctly processed and packaged. Be assured that Enriching Bee
Factors Royal Jelly is carefully freeze-dried and processed according to
very stringent standards.
Enriching Bee Factors Royal Jelly is guaranteed to be fresh, potent and
free of contaminants.
