Royal jelly is actually a milky white substance which is secreted from the salivary glands of worker bees. All bee larvae are given royal jelly by the bees for their first three days. Then they are fed on honey, pollen and water, except for the larva which is the one to become the queen bee. She continues to be fed royal jelly.
As a result of the royal jelly she becomes 50% larger than the other female bees and has a lifespan almost 40 times longer than the other bees!
For humans, royal jelly is a rich source of essential amino acides and it contains acetylcholine which helps transmit messages from one source to another. It is also a very good source of pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5).
Throughout the world it is prized for its health qualities and various cultures ascribe various properties to royal jelly, from being an elixir for youthfulness to being a powerful aphrodisiac!
