The miraculous food with which the queen bees are fed, the mothers of life in the hive, has the same energetic effect on the human body. Prevents the disease and maintains health at optimal standards. The name “royal jelly” is inappropriate, as it is not produced by the queen. The truth is the other way around: royal jelly is secreted by bees for their queen. Young bees, also called nurses, at a certain stage of their life in the hive, produce it in their hypo-pharyngeal glands.
Royal jelly is for hives like breast milk for babies. In the hive, all the larvae are fed with royal jelly, until the age of 3 days. There is only one exception to this rule: the queen larva. She continues to be fed royal jelly throughout her life.
The surprising effects that royal jelly causes in the hive arouse great curiosity outside it. In laboratories in many parts of the world, renowned researchers conduct detailed studies at the highest scientific and technical level, striving to unravel the mysteries of royal jelly.
