Accidental Brilliance Superfood + Supplement Series...Royal Jelly
It's not just beautiful flowers that bees get the credit for giving us, thanks to bees one of the most powerful and beneficial superfoods around is Royal Jelly. Without a doubt it contains all the nutrients to give potent increased levels of energy, vitality and a variety of amazing health benefits. Rich in minerals, natural hormones, B vitamins, fatty acids and folic acid, there is a reason they call this stuff royal. Royal Jelly is a creamy substance secreted by the worker bees in the beehive for the nourishment of the queen bee. The queen bee starts life in the hive just like any worker bee, she is randomly chosen by the worker bees for queen status and fed a diet exclusively of royal jelly. Remarkably she lives forty times longer than the average bee, five years versus the average six week life span of a worker bee who does not eat royal jelly...sort of amazing and it is all due to the power of nutritional value of the royal jelly. In humans the results are pretty amazing when eaten as well, stronger hair and nails, regulated hormones, help with infertility, help with cholesterol and blood pressure problems and the list goes on and on, this stuff is remarkable for improving and strengthening your health in so many areas. Of all the superfoods and supplements you can take bee products give you the biggest bang for the buck and the best results.
Before taking any bee product be sure you have no allergy to bees or bee stings. Not all royal jelly is the same so research the brand you are buying to be sure you are getting pure royal jelly. So far the best royal jelly I have found is Y.S. Royal Jelly, available at Whole Foods and most helath food stores.
