What are the benefits of royal jelly and how to use it with manuka honey

Royal jelly is a highly nutritious white substance secreted by worker bees and used as food for the queen bee. That is why it is called Royal Jelly, as it serves as the sole source of nutrition for the queen bee.

But that’s not the only reason why this milky secretion has captured the interests of researchers. Because royal jelly is packed with nutrients—carbs, protein, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals—it is believed to offer a range of health benefits such as easing menopause and PMS symptoms, boosting the immune system, healing wounds, slowing cancer cell growth, and anti-ageing properties. However, there is not sufficient scientific evidence at the moment to conclusively support these benefits.

In this article, we discuss why royal jelly may offer you some health benefits and how you can use it with Manuka honey.

How to use royal jelly

It’s important to remember that royal jelly is not the same as bee pollen, beeswax, bee venom, honey or propolis. However, it can be used in combination with other bee products such as Manuka honey and propolis.

When royal jelly is combined with Manuka, it delivers the unique properties of both:

  • Methylglyoxal (MGO), an organic compound found in Manuka, is known for its anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and nutritional properties. MGO also enhances wound healing and tissue repair.
  • 10-Hydroxy-2-Decanoic Acid (10-HDA), a bio-active compound of which royal jelly is the only known natural source. It may be responsible for many of the benefits of royal jelly.

Royal jelly is edible and is considered safe to consume in various forms, such as powder, capsules, and liquids. It can be consumed in its raw form. However, it is naturally bitter and sour. You can mix it with honey to improve the taste. It can also be incorporated in smoothies, mixed in tea, or added to your breakfast cereal.

Whichever way you choose to consume royal jelly, it is recommended and advisable to consult your doctor first.
