If you’ve read our blog post and newsletters before, you know that we often talk about the benefits of royal jelly. This creamy white substance produced by worker bees to feed the queen bees and the young is loaded with nutrients. And it’s these powerful nutrients that make royal jelly so beneficial to our overall health.
While royal jelly is used in many parts of the world to treat different health conditions and diseases, it is only recently that researchers in the West have given it much attention.
But royal jelly is finally being recognized! Take for instance the research that has been done on royal jelly at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The studies showed that RJ has the ability to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, and reduce inflammation.
Granted, this study was conducted on animals. But human studies have now also shown royal jelly’s ability to help humans lower their risk of heart disease.
For instance, a one-month human study saw an 11% and 4% reduction in total and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels in people taking about 3 grams of royal jelly daily.
By lowering blood pressure, inflammation and cholesterol levels, it appears that royal jelly may prove to be a promising treatment for reducing heart disease.
But that’s not all!
Say Goodbye to High Blood Pressure
If you’re like most human beings, you deal with your fair share of stress. And who says dealing with stress is fair?
But mortgage payments, awful commutes and a boss who likes to yell are the realities of life.
While it’s hard to escape life stressors, it’s important to manage them. If you don’t, your blood pressure could skyrocket, and you become a candidate for a stroke or heart attack.
The even worse news is that many prescription blood pressure medications come with their own nasty side effects such as dizziness, constipation, rapid heartbeat, skin rash, drowsiness and erection problems.
I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do is take a medication that is supposed to help my health, only to have it harm my health.
Talk about adding more unnecessary stress to your life!
That’s why so many people are looking for natural remedies for their hypertension.
While eating an appropriate diet free of processed foods and exercising regularly can go a long way in bringing down your numbers, there are other things you can do to help, like taking royal jelly.
How does royal jelly help you lower your blood pressure?
To start, it is the richest known natural source of vitamin B5, which lowers the effects of stress on the body.
To add to that, along with important vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, C, D and E, 20 amino acids, essential fatty acids, and potassium, calcium, zinc, iron and manganese, royal jelly also contains short chains of amino acids, known as peptides.
These peptides block the effects of ACE (angiotensin converting enzymes). ACE is a powerful constrictor of blood vessels, and by blocking its action, constricted blood vessels can dilate to help reduce hypertension.
You have most likely heard of ACE inhibitors, and are maybe on one yourself. Royal jelly basically does the same thing, except royal jelly is a natural substance that doesn’t come with ANY nasty side effects.
Our Golden Royal Honey is loaded with royal jelly along with other natural ingredients that have been scientifically shown to help a host of health issues.
As a bonus, royal jelly can also help with libido issues and erectile dysfunction. So, once you get your heart nice and healthy, you could say royal jelly can help you give it a real workout!
*Never stop your blood pressure medication without speaking to your doctor and always speak to your healthcare provider before starting any new treatment or protocol.
