Ever wonder if there's a naturally-produced "perfect food" - packed with the essential proteins, vitamins and nutrients required by our bodies?
Royal Jelly (feng wang jiang), responsible for the remarkable development cycles of queen bees, may be as close as we can come to the "perfect food".
Royal Jelly is a daily nutritional supplement that contains remarkable amounts of proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals and other biocatalysts which may improve your overall health and well-being if taken on a regular basis.
Packaging: 100 capsules
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take 2 softgels, 1 to 3 times daily.

Royal Jelly is a complex chemical substance produced by young worker/nurse bees as food for the queen bee. This substance has been highly prized by Chinese herbalists for centuries due to its complete nutritional value - rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, lipids and other essential ingredients. The Chinese have long considered Royal Jelly to be the "perfect food" - containing all of a body's essential nutritive ingredients in one food.
Our fascination with this "perfect food" stems from Royal Jelly's use in bee populations. Young nurse bees produce Royal Jelly as a secretion from glands on the tops of their heads. For 2-3 days, Royal Jelly is the only food given to all young larvae in their maturation process, while for the queen larvae, it is the only food ingested for her entire life. During the 3 days in which the worker bee larvae are fed on Royal Jelly, they reach maximum development and their weight multiplies by over 250 times! The queen bee reaches maturity 5 days earlier than the worker bees; and, when she is fully grown, her weight is double that of the working bee. The span of the worker bee's life is about 35-40 days; while the queen lives 5-6 years and is extremely prolific. She is fertilized once, and from that moment on can lay as many as three thousand eggs a day during the season for her entire life - all of this from being fed only Royal Jelly!
Royal Jelly's nutritive value has also been found to be effective outside of the bee world. This complex food contains remarkable amounts of proteins, lipids, glucides, vitamins, hormones, enzymes, mineral substances, and specific vital factors that act as biocatalysts in cell regeneration processes within the human body. Royal Jelly is rich in protein, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C, E, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid and folic acid.
Royden Brown, author of the Bee Hive Product Bible (Avery, 1993), states that Royal Jelly is "one of nature's best kept secrets" which may impart health benefits to humans when used in supplements and skin care products. The pantothenic acid present in Royal Jelly, for example, has been shown to "increase the life span of white mice," and its gamma globulin is said to help the body internally "fight against bacteria, viruses and toxins."
Because of its comprehensive nutritional value and gentle workings, Royal Jelly is considered to have adaptogenic properties and is recommended as a daily nutritional substance that may enhance overall health and well-being if taken regularly.
