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.
