10 Health Benefits of Royal Jelly and Why It May Be A Treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease

By Kaitlin Covel Dec 9 2017

Royal Jelly is not the magic pill cure-all of the natural world, but the incredible health benefits do give it an almost miraculous reputation considering that scientific studies testify to its potential to positively treat a variety of illnesses and symptoms including that of Alzheimer’s Disease.

What is royal jelly you ask? Royal jelly is the substance milked from the jaws of nurse bees in the hive exclusively for the queen bee. Royal jelly contains significant amounts of protein that are important for cell growth and reproduction as well as carbohydrates, fats, free amino acids, vitamins and minerals. It is interesting to note that royal jelly is rich in B vitamins, the 8 amino acids humans cannot produce, and potassium, magnesium, calcium, copper, sulfur, zinc, iron and manganese as well. No wonder royal jelly is considered a wellspring of nutrients. Here are the top 10 health benefits of royal jelly:

1. Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment

Research conducted recently demonstrated that royal jelly benefits neural function which indicates that it may improve short-term memory for patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The study was published in Advanced Biomedical Research. The powerful antioxidants in Royal Jelly make it an effective and natural treatment for fighting free radical attacks and oxidative stress which occur in many neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease.

2. Immune System Modulator

According to research published in a 2001 study in the journal International Immunopharmacology, royal jelly can boost the functions of the immune system. Histamine responses to allergens were suppressed immediately, evidencing that it may help to relieve allergies of a seasonal nature. Hopefully more research will be completed to validate royal jelly’s usefulness in treating allergies.

3. Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, and IBS Treatment

A European study found that royal jelly protected the mucosa of the colon by limiting the negative effects of the acidic substance that was given to the rats with colitis. Another finding in the study was that royal jelly protected against erosion of the cells in the colon. To replicate the results of this study in humans, the researchers concluded that a 140 pound person would need to take approximately 10 grams of royal jelly per day. In order to get this amount, a freeze-dried dose of royal jelly would be about 2 teaspoons and a fresh dose would be about 2 tablespoons....
