Can Royal Jelly Help You Lose Stubborn Fat?

I wrote last week about some ways you can stop yourself from binging this holiday season. But, being a realist, I recognize that no matter how much people try and NOT stuff their faces with calorie-laden holiday food, it’s simply going to happen.

Why? Because cookies, pies, and cakes are unbelievably delicious to start and also, it’s the holidays, and when you’re feeling festive you generally feel like eating whatever the heck you like. Right? Right!

Okay, so what will you do when January 1st rolls around and you’ve put on 5-10 pounds of fat? Well, if you’re like most people, you’ll commit to joining a gym and dieting, only to quit after 3 weeks.

Well, there’s an easier, and more delicious, way to lose stubborn fat.

Royal Jelly – Losing Weight Just Got Sweeter!

You may have tried diet pills or supplements in the past that promised to help “melt the fat” off your body. In most cases, these pills are either completely ineffective or, worse, come with some pretty nasty side effects.

But research has determined there is something that can help you with losing stubborn fat. It turns out that royal jelly, that creamy substance made by nurse bees, may help restore metabolic processes and prevent “excessive adipose tissue (white fat) accumulation.”

Why have you never heard of this benefit of royal jelly? Well, like so many things, this natural substance has been revered for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine but is only becoming known in the West in the last few decades. But at least our scientists are now finally catching on to this powerhouse substance.

For instance, in a 2012 study conducted on women with type 2 diabetes, researchers found that supplementing with 1000 mgs of royal jelly each day helped the women lose significant weight.

Once these results were seen by the health community, other researchers wanted to see if they could mimic them. So in 2017, another study was conducted on mice to see if royal jelly could help anyone, not just those with type 2 diabetes, lose weight. The results were very promising and showed that royal jelly not only helps people lose weight but may even PREVENT weight gain in the first place.

How exactly does it do this?

Royal Jelly Boosts Metabolism

We all know that the higher your metabolism, the more calories (fat) you will burn even at rest. Yet another study found that royal jelly has the ability to induce thermogenesis (fat burning).  All those supplements on the market that claim to help your body burn fat would work by boosting thermogenesis. But while other supplements claim to do it, royal jelly actually DOES do it.

Royal jelly contains compounds called HDAA and HDEA. These compounds activate special proteins in your cells that increase fat burning. And they don’t just increase it by a little. Researchers found SIGNIFICANT increase to fat burning,

What Does This Mean for Your Holiday Weight Gain?

It means that when all else fails… when you “forget” to get up and go to the gym… when you can’t stick with the keto diet… when nothing you’ve tried has helped you take the weight off, royal jelly will make fat burning easier than ever before.

If you’ve been looking for a quality Royal Jelly supplement, look no further. Our Golden Royal Honey not only contains beneficial royal jelly, but also other ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help with stamina, libido, energy and even skin issues. You simply can’t find a better royal jelly supplement on the market.

 

It’s More Important Than Ever to Support Your Immune System

Fall is here and that means we’re officially headed into cold and flu season. This cold and flu season will be a little bit crazier and more chaotic than most, because now we have to contend with this novel Corona virus as well.

It is more important than ever that we take the necessary steps to keep ourselves and our families healthy! And the number one thing you can do is to support your immune system.

Here are some simple but very effective ways to support your immune system so it can support your optimal health:

Get Plenty of Rest

Most of us burn the candle at both ends. While this may help us to accomplish more on our “to-do” list, it doesn’t do anything positive for our overall health or well-being.

Simply put, your immune system cannot work optimally unless you get plenty of quality sleep each night. This means uninterrupted sleep lasting between 7 and 9 hours.

Eat Right

When you fill your body with refined sugars, trans fats and a bunch of chemicals no one can pronounce, you are taxing your immune system, that sees all of these as “foreign bodies” that need to be attacked. The attack comes in the form of inflammation and inflammation is the root cause of all disease.

It’s important that you stop eating processed foods and stick with whole foods you cook yourself. Focus on eating animal-sourced proteins, healthy fats and some fruits and veggies.

Improve Your Gut Health

Get this: 80% of your immune system lives in your GI tract AKA your GUT. This means, if your gut isn’t healthy – your immune system isn’t healthy and YOU’RE not healthy. It’s really important people understand this. You’ve probably been hearing over the past 5 years or so the “importance of gut health, “and maybe you listened or maybe, like most people, you didn’t pay attention.

Your immune system is mostly located in your gut, so it is incredibly important that you take care of your gut health. Eating right will certainly help with this. But there is something else you can do and that is to eat more honey.

Quality honey, especially products mixed with royal jelly, contain oligosaccharides, which are sugars that have been shown to serve as fuel for the good bacteria in our guts.

Honey also contains small amounts of polyphenols, which can both protect good bacteria and displace bad bacteria. Honey also contains a specific probiotic bacteria that helps keep your gut and entire immune system in tip-top shape.

Our Golden Royal honey contains royal jelly as well as other natural ingredients like ginseng that have been scientifically proven to help support our overall health. If you want a delicious way to stay healthy this winter, try some of our Golden Royal Honey.

Some Other Tips to Stay Healthy This Cold and Flu Season

Wash hands often

During any normal day our hands are touching so many different things that may contain germs, bacteria and viruses. It’s important that we all wash our hands throughout the day. You may also want to carry antibacterial hand gel with you if it’s not easy for you to wash your hands multiple times. And do your best to keep from touching your face. I think we’ve all gotten used to washing our hands and NOT touching our faces. We’ve had months of practice!

Wipe Down Shared Items and Surfaces

Use rubbing alcohol to wipe down shared items like doorknobs, stair rails, phones, vending machines and computer keyboards.

Avoid Crowds

If you can, avoid places like shopping malls and shop online instead. Again, we’ve all gotten used to distancing, and while that’s not fun when you’re distancing from friends and family, it can be helpful in staying healthy this winter.

Your immune system is a miraculous thing and it can keep you healthy from all sorts of illnesses if you treat it right. Follow these tips so you and your family can stay healthy this winter.

Sex and Aging: The Facts May Surprise You

From the time we hit puberty, many of us, especially guys, have sex on the brain 24/7. But as we get older, sex changes. Our bodies don’t necessarily look as good out of our clothes as they once did. And sometimes we’re not able to perform like we once did. But does that mean we should give up having sex entirely?

How Old is Too Old for Sex?

There is a pervasive myth that says the older you get, the less sex you have. While some people over the age of 55 have reported their sex lives have declined, others in their 60, 70s and older report they still have plenty of sexy encounters with their partners.

Here’s something else that needs to be mentioned:

Yes, sex in your 20s and 30s was hot and robust and very athletic. Older sex is more erotic and sensual. There is a deeper intimacy and more playfulness.

Are you wondering just how many older people are having sex? Well, when asked if they’d had partnered sex in the previous 12 months, the respondents of a 2007 University of Chicago survey of men and women said:

Men answering yes:
57 to 64: 84%
65 to 74: 67%
75 to 85: 39%

Women answering yes:
57 to 64: 62%
65 to 74: 40%
75 to 85: 17%

That means that more than half of men remain sexually active until the age of 75 and more than half of women remain sexually active until the age of 65.

So if you thought sex was over once you hit 55, or whatever made up number you had in your head, you are wrong.

If you’re an older man or woman, and you’d like to rekindle your sex life, keep reading, because we’re going to share some tips in just a bit. But first…

How Sex Changes as We Age

As I mentioned earlier, if you listen to the messaging from Hollywood or the mainstream media, they would have us all believe that sex is something that’s relegated for those between the ages of 18 and 50!

But this couldn’t be further from the truth.

While our body may change and not have the flexibility it once did, and while our skin may sag, most older adults are still very much interested in having sex.

And okay, sex may not be as spontaneous and wild as it once was. But many seniors report that sex can be much more loving, playful and intimate in later years.

Of course, we can’t deny that sometimes, even when the libido is still there, the body doesn’t always respond the way we’d like to.

For women, this can mean vaginal dryness, which can lead to painful sex. But by using some lubricant, both the man and woman can have a pleasurable time. If things are still too painful for vaginal intercourse, there’s always oral sex.

Things aren’t always so easy to solve on the male’s side. Often older men can’t achieve or maintain an erection, even during extended masturbation.

But there are ways to improve your erections, and you can do so without having to use prescription medications that come with nasty side effects.

Our Golden Royal Honey is loaded with all-natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help both men and women get their libido back.

Our honey has also been shown to help men achieve an erection at any age.

Do not be fooled by Hollywood or the mainstream media. Sex is a wonderful part of life, yes, even into our golden years.

If you need a little help in the bedroom, try our Golden Royal Honey today.

Try This to Increase Your T-Levels Naturally

raise your testosterone levels naturally

Testosterone is a sex hormone that’s important to both men and women. But men really need to watch their T-levels as they age. According to the American Urological Association, roughly 2 out of every 10 men 60 years of age and older have low testosterone levels. Those levels drop off even more once a man hits his 70s.

But don’t be fooled, men in their 30s, 40s and 50s can also experience dips in T-levels.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone Levels

Men with low T-levels can experience a range of symptoms, but here are some of the most common signs:

  1. Low Sex Drive

Testosterone is key when it comes to a healthy libido in men and women. A man with low T may experience a sudden and rather dramatic drop in their desire to have sex.

  1. Erectile Dysfunction

Adequate testosterone levels are also necessary to help men achieve and maintain an erection.

  1. Low Semen Volume

Your T-levels play a role in semen production as well. Semen is the milky white fluid that aids in sperm motility. Men who have low testosterone levels may have noticed the volume of their semen has decreased during ejaculation.

  1. Hair Loss

While there can be an inherited factor to a man losing his hair, testosterone is needed for hair production. Men with low T may notice a sudden loss of body hair and facial hair as well.

  1. Fatigue

If you’ve got low T-levels you’ve probably also got low energy levels. Men with low T are tired even when they’ve gotten a good night’s sleep.

  1. Loss of Muscle Mass

Testosterone plays a big role in building muscle. So, if you have low T-levels, you may find you have a loss of muscle mass. To make matters worse, low T means also having more body fat. And often this can look like enlarged breast tissue. Never a good look for a guy!

  1. Changes in Mood

Women aren’t the only ones to experience mood swings when their hormones are off. Men with low T levels are far more likely to face depression, irritability and have difficulty concentrating.

How To Increase Your Testosterone Levels Naturally

Just because age is a natural part of life, it doesn’t mean you have to throw in the towel and live with low testosterone. There are some simple and effective natural remedies that will help you get your T levels back up.

Exercise and Lift Weights

One of the most effective ways of boosting your T-levels is to exercise, with a focus on lifting weights. In fact, studies have shown that resistance training is the BEST type of exercise to boost T-levels in both short- and long-term.

Eat Plenty of Protein and Healthy Fats

Your diet has a huge impact on your testosterone levels. Eating adequate amounts of protein can help you maintain healthy T levels. Research has also demonstrated that eating enough healthy fats is also necessary for testosterone health.

Minimize Stress

Chronic stress elevates our levels of a hormone called cortisol. Unnaturally high levels of cortisol can reduce testosterone. So it’s important that you tackle your stress levels in healthy ways. Exercise can help, as can meditation and listening to relaxing music.

Turn to Nature

There are many natural supplements on the market that claim to help men boost their T-levels. But not all are created equally.

You’ve got to look for supplements that are backed by science, not a bunch of fluff or hype.

Our Golden Royal Honey, for instance, is made with 100% all-natural ingredients that have been proven to help men increase their testosterone, increase their libido, and achieve a healthy erection.

Try some for yourself today.

Decreasing T-levels comes with age. But you don’t have to settle for it. Try these tips to keep your levels at optimal levels. And don’t forget to try our Golden Royal Honey to get your mojo back in the bedroom!

 

6 Tips for Couples Trying to Get Pregnant

As they old adage goes, “Having kids is hard work, but making babies can be a whole lot of fun!” That is very true. But sometimes making babies can become a bit frustrating when, after months of trying, the couple still hasn’t gotten pregnant.

If you and your partner have been trying to conceive but haven’t had any success yet, here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. It’s a Number’s Game

While TV and films often make it look like it’s incredibly easy getting pregnant, conceiving a baby isn’t that easy all of the time. In fact, it’s mostly a number’s game. Most statistics state that out of 100 couples that try and get pregnant each year, only 80-90 will be successful.

So, the first thing all couples need to do is relax. You may not get pregnant the first, second or even third time. That’s often just how it goes. Just keep trying!

  1. Eat a Healthy Diet

The body cannot work properly if it’s not healthy. You may think because you are 28 years old and can eat ice cream every night without packing on the pounds because you go to the gym 4 days a week that you are healthy. Not necessarily. It just means you’re young and still have a good metabolism.

The truth is, even younger people can often be unhealthy overall. And diet plays a key part in your overall health. Diet certainly plays a part in reproductive health, as sex hormones can get out of whack on diets full of too many trans fats, sugars and chemical additives.

It’s important to cut out garbage and eat healthy, whole, nutritious foods. Be sure to eat plenty of animal source proteins like milk and dairy. And eating fresh, organic fruits and veggies will help you get the vitamins and minerals your body needs.

  1. Quit Smoking

Couples where one or both partners smoke (anything) have a 40% lesser chance of getting pregnant. Smoking also decreases the man’s sperm count AND quality. This can lead to male infertility.

  1. Watch the Cocktails

Oddly enough, it’s that glass or three of wine that got you in the mood. But alcohol is known to tamper with fertility, so it’s really best to just cut it out of your life right now completely. Eventually you’ll get pregnant, have a kid and once they’re 8 and start having sleepovers at someone else’s house, you can go back to drinking at night again!

  1. Speak with a Doctor

Yes, the birds and the bees part comes naturally, but it’s often a good idea to work with your obstetrician to get their guidance along the way. Also, when having trouble getting pregnant, it’s a good idea that both partners get a physical to see where the problem may lie. Once you know if the infertility issue is on the man or woman’s side, you have a better chance of tackling that problem.

  1. Take Supplements

Speak with your obstetrician about supplements to take. Iron and folic acid are usually two recommended to women trying to conceive but check with your doctor first.

Men, we recommend taking our Golden Royal Honey supplement that contains natural substances scientifically proven to help with sperm quantity and quality.

Trying to make a baby can be fun, but actually getting pregnant can be frustrating for some couples. But if you follow these tips you should be able to have an easier time.

Do Aphrodisiacs Really Work?

pexels-vera-arsic-984944

If we’re honest, men and women have been greatly motivated by (read: obsessed with) sex since the beginning of time. And, since the beginning of time, it seems our ancestors used all sorts of powders and potions to help get them… in the mood.

The need for increased libido is something that crosses all barriers – race, culture, ethnicity, age, income, you name it. We all want to have better sex and more of it! And it seems that aphrodisiacs are what will help us have great sex.

But Do Aphrodisiacs Really Work?

My friend’s dad used to swear that if his wife ate oysters, she’d “get in the mood.” A guy I used to work with swore up and down that spicy foods would help him and his older girlfriend have a wild night.

But is there any truth to this? Do these aphrodisiacs really work?

Well, oysters are rich in the mineral zinc. Deficiencies in this mineral have been linked to loss of libido and erectile dysfunction (ED). Can eating one serving of oysters suddenly help you achieve and erection or have a roaring libido? Most likely not. But adding in zinc-rich foods to your diet may help over a period of time.

What about spicy foods? They’re supposed to be aphrodisiacs.

Well, spicy foods contain something called capsaicin, which is the active ingredient in cayenne pepper and other hot peppers and is what gives them their heat. Eating capsaicin can increase metabolism and get the heart beating faster, which can improve blood circulation and get more blood to the genitals. But again, you’d have to eat a lot of spicy foods and often to reap any real benefit.

There’s also chocolate. Who among us doesn’t feel really good after eating chocolate? And some swear it is an aphrodisiac. But is there any scientific evidence of this?

Scientists do admit there are a couple of chemicals in chocolate that could increase sexual desire. One is tryptophan – yes, that stuff in turkey that makes you sleepy. Tryptophan is actually a precursor to the feel-good chemical serotonin. The other chemical in chocolate is called phenylethylamine, which is a stimulant akin to amphetamine. Phenylethylamine is released into our brains when we fall in love.

The reality is, these substances are only in chocolate in very small doses, so it’s unlikely that they actually offer an aphrodisiac effect. So why do people seem to “get in the mood” after they eat chocolate? We can’t deny that eating chocolate and letting it melt in our mouth just makes us feel good. And we’re probably more susceptible to arousal when we’re in a good and happy mental state.

So does this mean that aphrodisiacs don’t really exist?

No, they do, but you’ve got to be careful what you choose. Some aphrodisiacs are just myth, and perhaps the placebo effect (where we assume we’ll get an outcome and so we do) is behind a lot of these aphrodisiacs working.

But there are herbs and natural ingredients that have been studied and used all over the world for their ability to increase sexual desire and help men achieve erections.

What are some of these actual aphrodisiacs?

Radix Eurycoma Longifolia

Radix Eurycoma Longifolia, whose botanical name is Long Jack, literally translated to Ali’s Stick. It originates from Malaysia and has been used as a medicinal plant there as well as in other countries such as Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and Laos for decades.

Scientific Research

Long Jack has been studied for its ability to help improve vitality in users. Long Jack extract has been scientifically tested on rats during lab experiment and the result were very positive. It was found to increase sexual activity of the rats. Asian people have known this for a long time. In fact, in Malaysia, long jack is considered the natural Viagra by the locals.

Studied since the 1960s, long jack is known to:

  • Increase energy levels
  • Increase sperm count as well as sperm quality

Radix Panax Ginseng

Panax Ginseng has been revered for its medicinal properties for thousands of years all over the world. In Asia it has been used to strengthen the body and beat the effects of stress. It has also been used to boost the immune system and improve circulation.

Scientific studies have found ginseng to be able to increase the production of certain hormones, improve energy and help calm nervousness. These are all things that can improve the quality of your sex life!

Royal Jelly

And finally, royal jelly is a creamy white substance made by nurse bees to feed to bee larva and the queen bee. It is loaded with powerful nutrients, which is probably why the queen bee grows 10x larger and lives 10x longer than the average bee.

Research has shown that royal jelly does in fact help the body’s immune system, thereby helping your body to combat the effects of aging and stress.

These 3 natural substances have all been studied and shown to help men and women with their libido and impotence. If you need some help in the bedroom, you can either eat a boatload of oysters and spicy food, or you can eat a delicious packet of our Golden Royal Honey, which contain all three of these powerful aphrodisiacs.

 

Inflammation: The Bad, the Ugly, and the Really Bad and Ugly

pexels-pranidchakan-boonrom-1350560

Inflammation can be a confusing topic. This stems from the fact there are two kinds of inflammation: the good kind (acute inflammation) and the bad kind (chronic inflammation).

Acute inflammation occurs when you sustain an injury like a cut or an illness like the flu. When there is an injury or illness, your immune system releases white blood cells that rush into action.

In the case of a cut, the white blood cells rush to the cut and fight off the invading bacteria so you don’t get an infection. It is the white blood cells fighting the good fight on your behalf that causes your wound to become red and hot.

That’s acute inflammation and it’s what keeps you healthy.

Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, is not good for our health. Chronic inflammation happens over the course of weeks, months and even years.

And when inflammation is allowed to go on this long in your body, it will negatively impact all of your organs and systems.

But what causes this chronic inflammation in the first place? Well, it’s not usually injury or illness. It’s usually lifestyle factors such as eating a poor diet high in junk foods and low in nutritious wholesome foods, certain medications, smoking, stress and environmental factors.

And that’s not even the worst of the news…

Inflammation is the Root Cause of Most Diseases

According to a Harvard Medical School report, “Chronic inflammation plays a central role in some of the most challenging diseases of our time, including rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, and even Alzheimer’s.”

And according to research published in 2012, “An increasing body of evidence shows that chronic inflammation causes and advances many common diseases.”

Inflammation is something that needs to be taken seriously and not ignored. Most people aren’t even aware they have inflammation unless they have a blood test done. And over the days and weeks and months, their body starts to break down and develop some of the diseases I just mentioned.

At any age, it’s important we take steps to reduce the inflammation in our body. You can do this in a number of ways:

Eat an Anti-Inflammatory Diet

There are certain foods like sugar and trans fats that create inflammation in the body. These should be avoided.

But there are also foods that decrease inflammation, and you should make an effort to eat more of them.

Fatty fish have a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, which have long been revered for their ability to fight inflammation. Other foods to include are blueberries, extra virgin olive oil, green tea and herbs and spices such as turmeric and basil.

Destress

It’s not just what we eat that causes inflammation, stress is a major culprit as well. It’s important that you find healthy ways of destressing. Many people opt for unhealthy options, such as eating sugary comfort foods and drinking and smoking, all of which will increase inflammation in the body.

Exercise is a great way to beat the effects of stress as is meditation. Want to combine the two try a walking meditation. It moves your body while it stills your mind.

Reach for Supplements

There are natural supplements that can help decrease inflammation. For instance, adaptogens like Ashwagandha help eliminate the effects of stress on the body.

There is also ginseng, which fights inflammation in a couple of different ways.

First, it has been proven to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown ginseng extract inhibits inflammation and increases the antioxidant capacity within the cells.

On top of this, ginseng has also been used in traditional medicine to ease anxiety and boost mood. That’s a one-two punch against inflammation.

If you would like an excellent source of ginseng, please give our Golden Royal Honey a try. Not only does it contain beneficial ginseng, but also raw honey, royal jelly and long jack, all-natural substances that have been scientifically proven to help men and women with numerous health issues, including loss of libido and erectile dysfunction.

5 Natural Remedies for a Good Night’s Sleep

pexels-pixabay-271897

According to the American Sleep Association, 50-70 million US adults have a sleep disorder. That’s a whopping amount of people who toss and turn every night, only to awaken the next day groggy and irritable.

If you are someone that suffers with insomnia, you may have done what a lot of people do: turn to prescription or over-the-counter medications such as Ambien or Tylenol PM. The problem with these medications is that they are not intended for prolonged use. In fact, not only can you become totally dependent on them, but they can also negatively impact your health. Extended use of Tylenol, for instance, can harm your liver.

The last thing you need when you’re not getting enough sleep is added health issues on top of already feeling awful. The much better option is to use natural remedies that can help you get a good night’s rest.

5 Natural Remedies for a Good Night’s Sleep

The following remedies have been able to help many people get a good night’s rest.

  1. Power Down

“Sleep is not an on-and-off switch,” says the sleep expert and clinical psychologist Michael Breus, PhD, the author of The Power of When. So many of us go, go, go all day and all night, and then we hop into bed and expect our body to just easily fall asleep. It doesn’t work that way. Your body needs time to adjust, unwind and calm down enough that sleep comes easily.

It’s important that you begin to “power down” about an hour before you lay your head down on your pillow. This hour will include any tasks needed to get ready for bed, (washing face, brushing teeth, etc.). It’s also important that you don’t watch any digital devices for that last hour. The blue light emitted from TVs and smartphones messes with our natural sleep cycle, making it hard for us to fall asleep. A much better idea is to meditate in bed, listen to music or a podcast, or read an actual book.

  1. Stretch

Oftentimes, people have a hard time falling asleep because the muscles in their body are too tense. We need to be able to fully relax in order for that sleepiness to come on. It’s a great idea to take either a hot shower or hot bath and then do some light stretching to get those muscles nice and relaxed.

  1. Exercise Regularly

Studies have linked exercise with quality sleep for quite some time. A study published in October 2015 in the Journal of Sleep Research showed that after just 6 months of exercising 150 minutes per week, participants reported significantly reduced insomnia symptoms. As a bonus, they also had reduced depression and anxiety symptoms.

  1. Keep Your Room at the Ideal Temperature for Sleeping

Many people toss and turn all night because their room is either too hot or too cold. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the optimal room temperature for sleep is between 60 and 67 degrees. Cooler temps help to reduce brain metabolic activity, allowing people to experience a normal sleep cycle. So keep your bedroom on the cool side and wear breathable clothing (or no clothing!).

  1. Royal Jelly

Royal Jelly is a creamy substance made by worker bees to feed their Queen Bee – hence the name Royal Jelly. Royal jelly is loaded with impressive nutrients that help the queen been live 10x longer and grow 10x bigger.

Royal jelly has also been used for centuries by people all over the world to treat a variety of health issues. And it turns out, royal jelly is a delicious way to get a good night’s sleep.

First, it keeps your blood sugar from dropping in the middle of the night. This is why many people wake up. Nutrients in royal jelly also have an ability to calm your brain chemistry. So if you’re someone who lays their worrying and feeling anxious about things, royal jelly may help calm your nerves so you can fall asleep.

If you want to start getting a good night’s sleep, we recommend you try some of these natural remedies. And if you’d like to try some royal jelly, then we recommend you try our Golden Royal Honey.

Our Golden Royal Honey not only includes Royal Jelly to help you get a restful night’s sleep, but three other powerful ingredients that can help with everything from libido problems, sperm count, hormonal issues, wrinkles and fine lines and a whole lot more.

The Link Between ED and Hair Loss

justin-follis-A7Um4oi-UYU-unsplash (1)

Men historically have taken a lot of pride in two things: a thick head of hair and their performance in the bedroom. Now think about this: If you HAD to choose between losing your sexual function or losing your hair, which would you choose? Unfortunately for many men, they don’t get a choice, rather, they seem forced to deal with both, which can be a real mental and emotional struggle.

According to studies, roughly 40% of men in their 40s suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED). By the time they reach their 50s, that number rises to 50% of men struggling with ED. And according to the American Hair Loss Association, by the age of 50, as many as 85% of men will have experienced some degree of hair thinning or hair loss.

These statistics beg the question: is there a link between erectile dysfunction and hair loss?

ED and Hair Loss: Understanding the Basics

Many men think that the definition of erectile dysfunction is an inability to achieve an erection. While that is true to some extent, ED is more complicated than that. ED is actually a combination of symptoms including poor circulation and low libido and these together make it incredibly difficult to achieve and maintain a firm erection. This ultimately leads to a loss of confidence and self-worth.

While hair loss is an entirely different health condition, it also impacts a man’s confidence and self-worth. Whether it’s androgenic alopecia (also known as male pattern baldness), telogen effluvium, or alopecia areata, most hair loss conditions result in the overall thinning of hair which eventually progresses to the actual loss of hair.

Causes of ED and Hair Loss – Some Clues

Though ED and hair loss are two entirely different health issues, the conditions that contribute to both overlap in some interesting ways. With ED, the causes can be separated into two categories: psychosocial and medical.

The most common medical causes of ED stem from poor circulation, and that can be a result of myriad conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Psychosocial causes for ED usually involve mental health conditions like depression or anxiety as well as chronic stress and trouble in the man’s romantic relationship.

Interestingly, some of the physical or medical conditions that lead to hair loss include stress, changes in hormones and poor blood circulation to the scalp. So it seems that some of the same health problems that contribute to ED may also play a role in triggering hair loss.

Medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure are a big contributing factor for both ED and hair loss as well, especially when medications for these conditions become involved.

Final Thoughts

While it’s not entirely accurate to say that erectile dysfunction causes hair loss or that hair loss causes ED, there does seem to be a strong link between these two conditions. Not only do certain medical and lifestyle factors play into both, but so do risk factors.

When you are struggling with either condition, let alone both, there’s a knee-jerk reaction to turn to prescription medications for help. Sadly, many medications that are commonly prescribed for ED and hair loss come with nasty side effects, and some of them just plain don’t work.

A better approach to treating ED and hair loss is to change your lifestyle and turn to natural remedies. So for instance, if eating a poor diet has led to you developing high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes, then cleaning up your diet and beginning an exercise routine may prove very beneficial in dealing with your ED and/or hair loss.

Are Your Sperm as Healthy as You Think?

sperium-319806_1280

Any time the topic of infertility is discussed, it usually focuses on female infertility. But the reality is, roughly half of the infertility cases in the United States involve male infertility. This number always comes as a shock to many men. Most have been conditioned to think that while women’s eggs have a time clock, their sperm stays young and healthy despite their own advancing years.

But this simply isn’t the case.

Yes, while certain male celebrities prove men can have children in their 50s, 60s and even 70s, no man should assume his sperm are healthy at any age. For as many men that have been able to conceive a child later in life, there are far more who have trouble getting their partners pregnant.

So what happens to sperm as men age?

Well, as men age, their sperm count as well as sperm quality go down. Some research has suggested that from the age of 40, the quality and quantity of sperm declines and fairly rapidly, too. Not only does it become harder to conceive when the man is over age 40, but chances of miscarriage also increase as do other conditions such as dwarfism, autism and ADHD.

And, while men are never really comfortable exploring their emotions, the truth is when they experience infertility and can’t get their partner pregnant, they struggle with feelings of shame and guilt.

Causes of Male Infertility

Now that you know male infertility is a bigger problem than you may have first thought, let’s take a look at some of the most common causes.

We already discussed one of the biggest causes of male infertility, and that is age. The truth is, if you know you want to have children, it’s best not to put it off until you are in your 40s. I know many couples now are trying to make sure they are financially set before having kids, but waiting too long can end up in infertility and heartache.

Most of the other causes of male infertility can all be gathered under the umbrella category of poor “lifestyle choices.” Here are some of the most common lifestyle choices that can negatively impact your sperm quality and quantity, at any age:

Obesity

Research has suggested that obesity is linked with decreasing sperm count and sperm motility. If you are overweight, it’s important for your sperm’s health and your overall health that you lose weight and maintain it.

A Poor Diet

Not only does a poor diet lead to obesity, it can also lead to type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Research has revealed that both health issues can lead to male fertility problems.

So this means even thin men who have diabetes or high blood pressure may also experience fertility issues as a result of their poor food choices.

It’s important to stay away from processed junk foods and stick to nutritious foods like meat, eggs, healthy fats and some fruits and veggies.

STDs

Sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause infertility in men. Be safe by limiting your number of sexual partners and always use a condom. If you want to really decrease your chances of catching an STD, stay in a mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who is not infected.

Stress

Stress negatively impacts just about every organ and system in the body. Chronic stress  also interferes with both male and female sex hormones and you need your hormones to stay balanced in order to conceive. Meditate, exercise, chill out however you need to to eliminate the effects of stress.

Alcohol

If you really want the healthiest sperm – and healthiest baby – possible, then you’ll want to refrain from heavy drinking. One or two drinks a week is okay, but too much alcohol can reduce testosterone production and decrease sperm count.

While we’re at it, smoking is a big no-no, whether it’s smoking cigarettes or marijuana, both can increase a man’s chances of infertility.

Toxins

Toxins like pesticides, herbicides, asbestos and lead can alter your hormones. Eat organic produce if your budget allows and do your best to stay away from other environmental toxins.

Heat

Increased scrotal temperature can negatively impact sperm production so wear loose-fitting underwear and avoid long soaks in hot tubs or saunas.

Natural Treatments for Male Infertility

Beyond following these tips, there are some natural remedies for treating male fertility issues. For instance, there are many natural herbs and supplements on the market that have been shown to help men with their fertility issues.

Golden Royal Honey has taken the science behind nature and used it to create a supplement that tackles male infertility at its core. Ginseng, royal jelly and long jack have all been scientifically tested and found to help men with their sperm count and sperm quality. They have also been shown to help men improve their libido and fight erectile dysfunction as well.

If you want to have a child with your partner but you have been found to have poor sperm count and quality, follow these guidelines and try some Golden Royal Honey for yourself today.

 

Sexual Performance Anxiety – Why it happens and What to Do About it

yellow-banana-on-purple-background-3773668

Whether you’re 20 and just getting your sexual sea legs, or 50 and have been around the block a few times, there are so many emotions that go along with sex.

Obviously, there’s the emotion of being ecstatic! But for many men, there’s also a feeling of anxiety.

What causes sexual performance anxiety? A number of things, including:

  • Body image issues (you are concerned about your weight or penis size).
  • You are concerned you may not satisfy your partner.
  • You’re worried about premature ejaculation.
  • Relationship issues are stressing you out.

Any type of stress you may feel before or during sex causes your body to release stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones are a response to the “fight or flight” feeling and they help our bodies either fight the enemy or run like hell toward safety.

They do this partly by constricting blood vessels to redirect blood flow. This makes it harder for men to achieve an erection, because they are not getting enough blood flow to their penis.

Then it becomes a vicious cycle: you had performance anxiety, which caused hormones to release, which made it hard for you to get an erection, which has now made your performance anxiety a reality. And on and on the cycle goes.

Over time, your performance anxiety can worsen, severely impacting your sex life. In many cases, men may lose all interest in sex.

The good news is, many studies suggest that performance anxiety is one of the main contributors of erectile dysfunction. Once the performance anxiety has been tackled, many men will be able to achieve healthy erections again.

How to Beat Sexual Anxiety

So what are some proven ways you can beat your sexual anxiety and get your mojo in the bedroom back? Try the following:

Tackle Your Stress

I just mentioned how stress hormones can wreak havoc on your sexual health. It’s really important that you find healthy ways to manage your stress. Exercise is a great way to burn through those stress hormones, meditation is also effective and speaking with a trained counselor if you are really having a hard time with something.

And speaking of counseling…

Counseling

If your performance anxiety stems from a relationship issue (lack of trust, as an example), then it might be a good idea to seek help from a relationship therapist who can help you and your partner navigate the troubled waters.

Supplements

If your erectile dysfunction is rooted in something else, for example poor diet and lack of exercise, well, your first step would be to improve both of those areas of your life. Not getting enough sleep? Try and get at least 7 hours each night.

But sometime mother nature can give us the little extra help that we need to ensure optimal sexual health. Our Golden Royal Honey is chock full of powerful natural ingredients like Radix Eurycoma Longifolia (Long Jack), Radix Panax Ginseng and Royal Jelly, which have been scientifically proven to help men achieve strong and lasting erections.

Living with sexual performance anxiety is stressful. But there are things you can do to beat it. If you follow these tips and try our Golden Royal Honey, you may be able to get your sex life back on track.

 

Get Relief from Menopause Naturally

woman-3613722_1920

Most women over the age of 40 become well aware that menopause is just on the horizon. For many of them, they look to the future with grief and worry, because they know menopause comes with a lot of unpleasant symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and vaginal dryness and discomfort. They also know that because of their hormonal shifts, they may face certain health risks.

While hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the most common option for menopausal women, is it the safest one? Mounting research is now suggesting that HRT may come with some potential and serious health risks.

Risks of Hormone Replacement Therapy

What exactly is hormone replacement therapy and what kind of risks are involved? HRT is a treatment plan that uses medications containing female hormones to help a woman balance her hormones. Some treatments use estrogen alone and some combine estrogen with progesterone.

These medications are meant to replace the important hormones that the woman’s body is still making, but at much lower levels. By replacing these hormones, the woman no longer has to experience the dreaded symptoms of menopause.

Now there are some benefits to HRT, namely it can prevent bone loss and fractures in postmenopausal women. But along with these benefits come some risks.

According to the Mayo Clinic website, in the largest clinical trial to date, a combination estrogen-progestin pill (Prempro) increased the risk of certain serious conditions, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Blood clots
  • Breast cancer

This is another example of people trying to get relief from one medical condition, only to be potentially plagued with an even more serious medical condition.

Royal Honey – A Safer Alternative

Because of these potentially serious health risks, some medical experts are now advising their patients to seek natural treatments for relief from menopausal symptoms. Studies are now suggesting that royal jelly, a nutritious substance from bees, may help women naturally get the relief they need.

One recent study found that when women consumed just 150 mg of royal jelly every day for 3 months, their HDL (good cholesterol) increased while their LDL (bad cholesterol) significantly decreased. In addition, the study found that royal jelly may have the potential to reduce post-menopausal associated dyslipidemia, which is thought to contribute to the development of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

In addition, royal jelly has shown promising results in improving anxiety and depression symptoms associated with menopause and may do so in as little as 3 months. And as far as the fatigue many women experience during menopause, royal jelly seems to help there as well, giving energy throughout the day.

While more human studies will need to be conducted, the results so far are very promising and show that royal jelly may indeed be a safe and effective natural treatment for women suffering from the symptoms of menopause.

Our Golden Royal Honey May Offer Even More Benefits

Now you know that royal jelly offers some significant benefits to menopausal women. And while our Golden Royal Honey contains royal jelly, it contains some other powerful natural ingredients that may also offer some relief to menopause symptoms.

To start, our raw honey is great for boosting energy levels as well as helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Our honey also contains Panax Ginseng, which has been used throughout history to treat mood disorders and anxiety. Ginseng is also a proven energizer.

And finally, there’s Tongkat Ali. Many health experts discuss how this herb improves the sexual lives of men, but women can also greatly benefit from this herb as it helps balance hormones and give women their libido back.

If you’re tired of suffering from menopause symptoms but don’t like the idea of HRT treatments or the potentially dangerous side effects, then give our Golden Royal Jelly a try and see if life can’t start feeling better.
