Study: Royal Jelly Prevents Osteoporosis in Rats

Beneficial Effects in Ovariectomy Model and in Bone Tissue Culture Model
Evid Based Complement Alternat Med, 2006 Sep;3(3):339-48

Royal jelly (RJ) has been used worldwide for many years as medical products, health foods and cosmetics. Since RJ contains testosterone and has steroid hormone-type activities, we hypothesized that it may have beneficial effects on osteoporosis…our results suggest that both RJ and pRJ may prevent osteoporosis by enhancing intestinal calcium absorption, but not by directly antagonizing the action of PTH.
