Royal jelly is a deeply nourishing food supplement known to enhance fertility. In the bee colony, the Queen Bee is fed large quantities of royal jelly for the first days of growth which causes her to develop ovaries and gives her the ability to lay eggs. Royal is rich in protein, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C, E, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, inositol and folic acid.Hives that include a queen bee can potentially harvest 500 grams of royal jelly during a six month period.

In the Infertility Cure, fertility expert Dr. Randine Lewis describes several studies that detail why royal jelly is beneficial to fertility: “Bogdan Tekavcic, M.D., a Yugoslavian gynecologist, conducted a study in which the majority of women who were given bee pollen with royal jelly showed improvement or disappearance of their menstrual problems, while there was no change in the placebo group. Another study showed bee pollen significantly improved sperm production in men. Bee pollen, which is worker bee food, is rich in vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids, and steroid hormones, and improves health, endurance, and immunity. Royal jelly is modified pollen fed only to the reproducing queen bee, whose job it is to produce more infant bees. This nutritive tonic might be considered the bee equivalent of fertility drugs. Rich in amino acids, vitamins, and enzymes, royal jelly helps the queen lay millions of eggs and live longer than the worker bee.”

Apart from it’s fertility benefits royal jelly has also been shown to:

* enhance immunity
* reduce inflammation
* reduce aging
* support healthy hair
* increase sexual vitality
* balance hormones
* treat auto-immune conditions like arthritis

You can take royal jelly in a capsule form or in the fresh form. If you are allergic to bees and honey, you will want to avoid royal jelly to prevent reactions ranging from bronchial spasms, skin irritations, and asthma attacks, severe anaphylactic shock and, in most extreme allergies, death.
