Healthy Food Tips: 10 Benefits of Royal Jelly

We continue our discussion this week on superfoods from the book:

SUPERFOODS:

THE FOOD AND MEDICINE OF THE FUTURE

By: David Wolfe

I found a free PDF version of this book HERE.

Next up Bee Products– Bee products consist of raw honey, Bee Pollen, royal jelly and propolis. I’ll be breaking this up individually. Next – ROYAL JELLY

Royal Jelly is the exclusive food for the queen bee. The nurse bees produce the jelly and feed to select larvae, which then turn into queen bees. All the larvae begin the same, the only difference being what they are fed. The queen bee only eats royal jelly during her lifetime, which is 40x longer than a worker bee. She is also bigger and stronger than all other bees.

Health benefits of royal jelly include:

  1. Complete nutrition – containing all vitamins, minerals and amino acids needed
  2. Natural anti-biotic properties
  3. Anti-aging properties
  4. Improve memory
  5. Healthy skin
  6. Anti-inflammatory properties
  7. Lowers cholesterol
  8. Improve heart health
  9. Lower blood pressure
  10. Improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease

Here is a video explaining these benefits and much more.

About Tamara Hoerner (1083 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. I am very interested in this bee series. I’ve been told that the bee sting is good for multiple sclerosis. Thank you very much!

    • I’ve never heard that about bee stings, interesting. I’ll have to look into that. Yes, bee products are amazing indeed. Superior sources of nutrition. Power packed with everything we need. I’ll continue with this superfood series next week. Monday I’ll post about propolis. I’m so glad you find it interesting. 👍🙏😊
