We continue our discussion this week on superfoods from the book:
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:
- Complete nutrition – containing all vitamins, minerals and amino acids needed
- Natural anti-biotic properties
- Anti-aging properties
- Improve memory
- Healthy skin
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Lowers cholesterol
- Improve heart health
- Lower blood pressure
- Improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease
Here is a video explaining these benefits and much more.
