Royal jelly products
Royal jelly is the secretion from specific glands of worker bees that feeds the larva of the queen bee, which later continues to be the only food for the queen bee. It contains all the amino acids necessary for the human body, as well as all B-group vitamins and many micronutrients. In some countries, royal jelly is considered the elixir of long life. For example, the Japanese are the biggest consumers of royal jelly. In the middle latitudes, this bee product is considered one of the strongest biostimulators of animal origin that effectively regulates human and animal development processes.
Royal jelly is a white-yellowish, pearlescent jelly mass that has a specific scent and a sharp sour taste. It is rich in protein, fat, sucrose, fast-digesting carbohydrates, many polyunsaturated fatty acids, vital minerals, micronutrients, and vitamins.
Royal jelly has bacteriostatic and bactericidal properties that interrupt the replication of viruses and kill staphylococci, streptococci, and various bacteria. It is a completely natural and very potent antiseptic, active immunomodulator, and detoxifier. It can help with injuries, post-surgery recovery, and bleeding. It can also be helpful for increased stress. It supports the general condition of the body, improves the appetite and metabolism, as well as heart rate, memory, vision, hearing, physical, psychological, and mental condition. It also supports sexual performance. Royal jelly has an energising effect. It promotes cell regeneration and boosts the human immune and vegetative systems. It helps treat depression and improves various functions of the cardiovascular system, digestion, and endocrine glands.
When royal jelly is examined under the microscope, a variety of impurities can be observed, including pollen, beeswax flakes, small plant particles, etc. This is how you can tell an authentic royal jelly from an adulterated one.
Frequently asked questions
Royal jelly is the secretion from the glands of worker bees that are 5 to 14 days old. It is a white, pearlescent jelly mass with a specific phenolic scent and a sharp sour taste. Royal jelly is extracted when the queen is temporarily removed from a bee colony that is preparing to hive, and the hive cradles are broken for the collection of the jelly. Various impurities are visible when looking at natural royal jelly under a microscope, including pollen, beeswax flakes, small plant particles, etc. This is how you can tell an authentic royal jelly from an adulterated one.
The protein structure of royal jelly is similar to that of human blood serum. In our middle latitudes, this bee product is considered one of the strongest biostimulators of animal origin that effectively regulates human and animal development processes.
WILD MEADOW HONEY Royal Jelly contains significant amounts of 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid, which determines the amount of biologically active lipid compounds in the product. The 10-HDA content is 3.5%, which indicates high biological activity of the product. This is a key indicator in determining the product’s quality. It is also free of chemical contamination with pesticides, heavy metals, and toxins. It is GMO-free.
The composition of royal jelly may differ depending on the age of the bees producing it and the quality of the diet available at that time. However, its main ingredients are always water (60-70%), vitamins (B complex, A, C, D, PP, E), as many as 14 to 15 different micronutrients, approximately 20% protein, 1.4% to 4.3% fat, 18% sucrose, pantothenic and folic acids, and 22 amino acids that are required for normal development. These are nutrients that the human body does not generate itself but must assimilate with food. Royal jelly is also rich in micronutrients and minerals, in particular, iron, sulphur, magnesium, manganese, calcium, zinc, and cobalt. Royal jelly contains high levels of hormones, acetylcholine, and other biologically active substances. This product is especially easy to digest and the human body is able to assimilate as much as 80% of all the substances in royal jelly.

Researchers have observed that high doses of royal jelly of above 500 mg per day can promote the growth of malignant tumours. However, no negative effects were observed when taking regular doses of 50-200 mg per day.
It is not recommended for adolescents during puberty due to the high levels of hormones in the royal jelly.
Natural royal jelly and its products are not recommended for people with adrenal diseases such as Addison’s disease and acute diseases of the internal organs such as pneumonia and acute gastritis. Although rare, natural royal jelly, tablets, and ointments can cause allergies. Any treatment must be terminated in case of allergic reactions. It is not recommended to take royal jelly late at night as its tonic effect may interfere with sleep. If you are thinking about using royal jelly for treatment purposes, we recommend that you consult a doctor or an apitherapy specialist.
We recommend taking 50 mg to 200 mg of royal jelly per day for periods of 15 to 30 days (a piece of royal jelly the size of a rice grain weighs approximately 80-100 mg). Children should not take more than 10 mg to 50 mg per day. Royal jelly should be taken in the morning or during lunch before a meal by placing the correct amount under the tongue until it dissolves. As it dissolves under the tongue, its beneficial substances enter the blood directly through the oral mucous membranes. This is the best way for the body to assimilate it. If royal jelly is ingested right away, the enzymes in the stomach can destroy much of its goodness and therapeutic qualities.
Please remember that royal jelly is best absorbed by the body either in its natural form or in tablets. You can also take royal jelly mixed with honey in the ratio of 1:10 – a teaspoon of the mixture 2 to 3 times daily before meals.
Processed royal jelly (tablets, capsules, ampoules, and suppositories) should be used according to the manufacturer’s instructions specified on the packaging.
For the purposes of treatment and prevention, royal jelly can be taken for periods of one month. The course of royal jelly can be repeated several times in a year with a month’s break in between – especially in winter and spring.
Pure royal jelly is stored in the freezer in 5-15 g glass jars. Before use, the container should be kept at room temperature for 2 to 3 minutes. Then, using a glass spatula, take a piece the size of a rice grain and place it under the tongue. You can mix royal jelly with honey – 1 part jelly to 10 parts honey – and store it in a cool room. We recommend storing natural royal jelly in the refrigerator when it is in use and freezing it when taking a break. The biological activity of royal jelly deteriorates quickly at room temperature as the biologically active substances decompose and the royal jelly changes colour to yellow. Any natural royal jelly products must be refrigerated, be it tablets, suppositories, ampoules, or royal jelly and honey mixtures. Freeze-dried royal jelly products can be stored at room temperature in a dark and ventilated room.
