Home Supplements Royal Jelly

When a couple begins trying to get pregnant, they may begin investigating natural ways to boost their fertility. Many couples are finding success in achieving pregnancy by supplementing their diets with royal jelly.

What is royal jelly?
Royal jelly is a specialized food produced by bees. Royal jelly is only consumed by a queen bee during her first few days of life. This diet of royal jelly causes her to develop ovaries and equips her with the ability to produce and lay eggs. Royal jelly is high in protein and contains high amounts of amino acids, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, niacin, and folic acid.

How does royal jelly affect fertility?
The regular ingestion of royal jelly is believed to help balance and regulate hormones. Some studies have indicated that royal jelly may aid in regulating hormones due to it's unique ability to mimic the functions of estrogen in humans. This may help to explain why women suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and menstrual irregularities seem to find relief after beginning dietary supplementation of royal jelly.

What other benefits does royal jelly offer?
In addition to supporting fertility, royal jelly is believed to promote a healthy immune system, reduce inflammation, create healthy hair and nails, increase libido and provide relief from conditions such as arthritis.

What forms is royal jelly available in?

Royal jelly is available in two forms ; capsules and pure royal jelly. There is little information available as to whether one form is better than the other. Pure royal jelly is freeze dried and resembles the typical appearance of any type of jam or jelly. Pure royal jelly must be kept refrigerated. Women supplementing their diets with pure royal jelly will need to eat the jelly a couple times per day. Some women report not caring for the taste of the royal jelly. The capsules are much more convienent and do not require refrigeration making them easy to take with you while running errands and away from home. The capsules only need to be remembered once per day.

Should certain people avoid royal jelly?
Individuals who are allergic to bees, bee stings, pollen or honey should avoid using royal jelly as they are more likely to have an allergic reaction to it. Before beginning dietary supplementation of royal jelly, women should always consult their physician.
