Q: What uses does Royal Jelly have?
A: Royal jelly, which is secreted from the salivary glands of worker bees, serves as food for all young larvae and as the only food for larvae that will develop into queen bees. It contains a mix of vitamins, minerals, proteins and fatty acids, along with acid glycosides and sterols, such as stigma sterol. Half of the dry weight of royal jelly is made of protein. Studies in rodents indicate royal jelly has anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. It has been used for centuries to promote energy and as an anti-aging agent.
In the case of adrenal fatigue, royal jelly’s properties can be used as a gentle tonic. If you are in advance stages, only small amount is needed as it tends to be quite stimulatory. Those who are in milder stages will likely experience more energy, but those in advance stages can experience adrenal crashes.
