The value of Royal Jelly Extract as an alternative cure continues to be researched, but some specific and important benefits have been identified.Royal jelly extract is a substance secreted by bees and fed to their larvae. If there is no queen in the chamber, one lucky larva is selected as queen. Only she is given royal jelly in large quantities.Sounds uniquely “royal” doesn’t it?Research into the potential benefit of Royal Jelly extract for increasing longevity is ongoing. Supporters eagerly point out that the queen bee has a longer lifespan than the worker bees.What has actually been determined is that it has a positive effect on certain medical conditions and that it may contribute to cell rejuvenation. The prospect that the use of Royal Jelly may be used to lowering cholesterol, preventing heart disease, arteriosclerosis, and other debilitating diseases, is a very hopeful sign.The beneficial compound found in Royal Jelly that has caused peaked interest by researchers, is called acetylcholine.It is this substance that enables the transmission of messages from nerve cell to nerve cell, more commonly referred to as a neurotransmitter. It may just be the link which can repair memory damage in Alzherimer’s patients. Now that’s what I call an exciting possibility.Royal jelly extract contains amino acids, carbohydrates, protein, and vitamins. Many who have taken it claim improved memory function, lowered cholesterol levels, and a significant change in their overall well-being.Another positive aspect for some users is their claim that it increases sexual performance. Considering that a queen bee lays about 1500 eggs in one day, it’s no coincidence that science is studying a potential connection between the two.Add to all of this is the finding that Royal Jelly also contains an antibacterial protein. Researchers have found this protein to be packed with amino acids, which can be used to fight staph infection and streptococcus.Another study reports finding evidence that Royal Jelly may have anti-tumor components, and there is hope that it may be used to treat certain forms of cancer in the near future.Besides its popular uses for delaying or reducing the effects of aging and boosting the immune system, current uses include:Treatment of fatigueAsthma and hay feverSkin conditionsLiver diseasePancreatitisSleep disturbancesPMSMenopausal symptomsStomach UlcersSome people apply royal jelly directly to the skin as a tonic, or to the scalp to encourage hair growthTo say that researchers are finding successful ways to utilize this substance, and are hopeful for its increased use, is not just a solid endorsement, but news worth sharing…pass it on.
