Bees make smooth, creamy royal jelly to feed queen bee larvae. For hundreds of years, humans have used bee products — beeswax, honey, and royal jelly — to treat health issues, and today, science backs up many traditional benefits of royal jelly.
Royal jelly is very nutritious. It is approximately 70% water, 15% protein, 15% carbohydrates, 6% fats, and 3% vitamins, salts, and 29 amino acids, including all those considered essential for humans. Royal jelly also contains several B vitamins and polyphenols packed with antioxidants. Studies suggest long-term use of royal jelly supplements can help stabilize glucose levels to manage diabetes.
