❤ What is royal jelly?
Has been used since a long time ago by ancient Egyptian and Asian, it is currently a very popular ingredient in cosmetics, also health and beauty supplementation. Just like propolis and honey, royal jelly is also derived from bees.

Here goes the exciting part, royal jelly is the exclusive substance made specifically to supply queen bees’ food, with of course higher nutrients
❤ What are the ingredients of royal jelly? Does it really have a high nutritional value?
Royal jelly is partially soluble in water and has a pH between 3.4 and 4.5. The composition of royal jelly is extremely complex and diverse. Fresh royal jelly contains 65-68% of water, 11-14% of protein, 6% of lipids, 14-17% of carbohydrates, and 3% of undetermined substances.
The most important ingredient of royal jelly is 10-HDA, The importance of determining the 10-HDA acid lies in the fact that it is the main difference between Royal Jelly and the other bee products, i.e., it is what confers this product its unique characteristics, generating a marked difference. Therefore, low 10-HDA content implies a low Royal Jelly activity, ascribed to decomposition, poor quality, or something else to the commercialization of a product other than Royal Jelly. This determination was conducted by comparison with a pure 10-HDA standard.
Apart from that, it also has highly valuable ingredients such as Acetylcholine, Pantothenic Acid, and Vitamin B Complex.
