As the events of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to unfold, most of us continue to social distance, lay low at home, and wash our hands more often. But another way to ensure you and your family steer clear of the Corona virus is to support your immune system so it can do its job and keep you healthy.
You most likely know that vitamin C can help boost your immune system to fight off viruses, but did you know that royal jelly can also give your immune system a big boost?
What is royal jelly exactly?
Certain bees produce royal jelly, a creamy, milky substance that is fed to baby larva for its first three days of life. After that, the only larvae that get royal jelly are the ones designated to become queen bees.
It should be noted that while worker bees remain quite small and only live for about a week, queen bees grow 10x larger and can live up to six years! Let me say that again, worker bees live for 6-7 days while queen bees, the ones who eats royal jelly, live for up to six years.
Surely if royal jelly can extend a bee’s life for this amount of time, it must have a positive effect on human health as well. It certainly does!
Royal Jelly: A Nutritional Powerhouse
What gives royal jelly the ability to help boost the human immune system and extend the queen bees’ lives? It is absolutely packed with powerful nutrients like B-complex vitamins, including pantothenic acid and pyridoxine, amino acids, minerals, enzymes, antibacterial and antibiotic components, and trace amounts of vitamin C.
Numerous studies, including several published by the National Institutes of Health, found that compounds in royal jelly are especially beneficial to our immune system. In fact, scientists speculate that what allows the queen bees to live for such extended periods of time was that fact that compounds in in royal jelly are able to modulate insulin, promote immune function and neutralize free radicals.
All of the research so far suggests that royal jelly may indeed increase our immune system’s ability to fight off foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses. This is great news for those living with compromised immune systems such as the elderly and those living with HIV or undergoing cancer treatments.
But That’s Not All Royal Jelly Does
While boosting the immune system is enough of a reason to start incorporating royal jelly into your diet, that is by no means the only benefit it provides. Royal jelly is also a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substance, it helps lower cholesterol levels, helps heal wounds, may lower blood pressure, and protect the brain from degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.
But it gets even better. Royal jelly has been scientifically proven to help increase your libido and help men who are experiencing erectile dysfunction. So if you find yourself self-quarantining at home with your partner, with little to do because things have not been working downstairs, royal jelly can help you put all of this time to good use.
