|Royal jelly is one of the most difficult of all foods to
harvest and commands one of the highest prices because of its scarcity, high demand and
the recognition of its qualities. Why? Tests show Royal jelly to be about 36% protein and
containing amino acids, minerals, and B-Complex.
Royal jelly is a miracle substance for at least one entity: the Queen bee. This milky
white gelatinous substance is secreted in the salivary glands of worker bees for the sole
apparent purpose of stimulating the growth and development of queen bees.
What it can do for humans is a far more controversial matter. The claims are exuberant; it
is reputed to extend life span and, in general, reinvigorate the body.
Royal jelly is rich in pantothenic acid (part of the vitamin B complex), a substance
essential for many metabolic processes.
Pantothenic acid is the hub of the body's metabolic process. It is frequently
referred to as the "anti-stress" vitamin.
