Royal Jelly: A Delicious Way to Boost the Immune System

ani-kolleshi-vu-DaZVeny0-unsplash

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.

Golden Royal Honey contains royal jelly for your immune system health as well as the other benefits listed. Plus, our honey also contains Long jack and Ginseng, which have also been shown in studies to help with libido and erectile dysfunction issues.

The 7 Most Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

charles-deluvio-FpKysIoZ6go-unsplash

There is one very simple way a man can tell what his overall health is… does his penis work properly when he wants/needs it to.

Erections are dependent on important factors of a man’s overall health – his hormone levels, heart strength, blood flow and nerve function, to name a few.

If there are trouble in any of these areas, there’s a very good chance a man will experience erectile dysfunction (ED).

According to the American Urological Association, 1 in 10 men will experience ED at some point in their lives, with their odds increasing as they age.

With this in mind, here are 7 common causes of erectile dysfunction men should be aware of:

  1. Partying Hardy

While alcohol and recreational drugs may initially heighten sexual desire, eventually they can take a toll on your sexual performance. Even young men may struggle to achieve an erection after a night of hard partying. While the issue should fade away once you sober up, if this happens over and over to you, you can suffer from the next common cause on this list…

  1. Performance Anxiety

Once you have a few slip-ups in the bedroom, you begin to really worry about your performance each time. This anxiety can trigger a release of adrenaline, which in turn directs blood flow away from your penis. Without blood flow to your penis, your member can’t become engorged and rigid.

It’s important to get a handle on your performance anxiety, because in this case, it really is a self-fulfilled prophecy.

  1. Lack of Sleep

Fatigue is a common cause of ED. Research has shown that poor sleep decreases the male sex hormone testosterone. A study also found that nearly 70% of men with sleep apnea also suffer from ED.

If you’re someone who prides themselves on burning the candle at both ends, you may be doing more damage than good for your sexual health.

If you limit your partying behavior, make sure to get enough sleep, and learn to feel more confident about your bedroom game, you may be able to put an end to your erectile dysfunction.

  1. Medications

One of the most common, yet overlooked, causes of ED are prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. If you do any bit of research, you’ll see an amazing amount of medications these days list ED as a potential side effect!

What are some of the biggest culprits in the medication world?

  • Diuretics
  • High blood pressure medications
  • Antihistamines
  • Antidepressants
  • Pain medications (even some like Advil and aspirin)

If you think a medication you are on may be affecting your ability to achieve an erection, speak with your doctor about finding an alternative. NEVER stop taking a medication without speaking to your doctor first.

  1. Depression

Beyond taking an antidepressant that may cause ED, the feeling of depression itself can inhibit sexual expression. Talk therapy and exercise are two ways men can deal with their emotions and start to feel better.

  1. Type 2 Diabetes

ED is one of the most common complications of diabetes in men. And in men over the age of 50, the risk of ED nearly doubles. Diabetes, over time, damages blood vessels that get blood to your penis. The worse your circulation, the less chance of getting an erection. This is why ED is often a sign that the disease is already present.

  1. Obesity

Did you know that being overweight is one of the surest ways to develop ED? According to the National Institutes of Health, having a BMI of 25 or greater can disrupt a man’s hormonal balance, cell function, and insulin resistance.

And, as you may well know, once you hit the big 4-0, it becomes increasingly easy to pack on the pounds. That’s why it is so important to eat right and exercise regularly to keep every aspect of your health, including sexual health.

While this list is not exhaustive, I’ve definitely covered the most common causes of erectile dysfunction. Hopefully you have gained some insight and can make the necessary changes to get your mojo back in the bedroom.

And don’t forget, Golden Royal Honey is here to help you. Our honey is packed with powerful all-natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help men achieve erections to be proud of.

 

 

The 5 Most Common Erectile Dysfunction Myths Debunked

charles-deluvio-lKiW9-SxWXQ-unsplash

Do you know what’s going on below your belt? Do you REALLY know?

There’s a lot of information out there about erectile dysfunction (ED), the problem is, good information has become mixed up with junk information, and many men think they have the answers they need, when instead they have nothing more than a handful of myths.

We’d like to put some of the most common of these myths to bed, if you’ll excuse the pun.

ED Myth #1: If You Can Get an Erection – You Don’t Have ED

The actual definition of erectile dysfunction is: “The inability to achieve penile erection or to maintain an erection until ejaculation.” So, in other words, the real question to ask is, “Can you get and keep an erection that’s satisfying enough for sex?”

So, some men may have an inability to get an erection, and others may be able to get one, but have difficulty maintaining it for any length of time. And still other men may get an erection and keep it, but it won’t be hard enough to allow penetration.

ED Myth #2: ED Only Affects Older Men

This is probably the biggest ED myth out there. While it’s true that your risk for developing ED increases with age, younger men are by no means immune to it.

In fact, according to a study in the American Journal of Medicine, 85% of men ages 20 to 39 say they “always” or “almost always” can get and maintain an erection good enough for sex. This translates to roughly 15% of young men having some difficulty with erections always or at least sometimes.

ED Myth #3: If You Have Performance Issues Once, You Have ED

While most men may boast about being an animal in the bedroom, the reality is, most also don’t bat a thousand. And that’s to be expected. There are many things that can throw a man’s performance off:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Stress
  • Medications
  • Too much drinking
  • Fighting with your partner

If once in a while you have trouble, that is not ED. But if you find you are having a hard time achieving or maintaining an erection for three or more months, that does suggest a chronic issue is at play and you will want to make an appointment with your doctor.

ED Myth #4: ED Means You Have Something Wrong with Just Your Penis

The truth is, ED can be a symptom that indicates an underlying medical problem. For instance, ED can suggest type 2 diabetes or even a heart condition. ED can also indicate low testosterone or depression.

If you are experiencing ED, it’s important that you see your doctor to get checked out.

ED Myth #5: You’ll Need the Help of a Specialist to Fix Your Problem

Not necessarily. If you’ve gotten a clean bill of health from your doctor, as in you don’t have diabetes or a heart condition, then there are things you can do for yourself that may get your erections up and working again.

For instance, it may be that you need to lose weight and drink less. You may need to find healthy ways to destress and deal with any depression.

In many instances, there are natural supplements that can help. Our Golden Royal Honey is packed with all-natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help men achieve and maintain erections. This could be just what you’ve been looking for.

5 Reasons Why You Should Limit Your Drinking This St. Patrick’s Day

patrick-fore-j8bW-jBWF8g-unsplash

One of the biggest excuses to tie one (or five) on is right around the corner. St. Patrick’s Day has a long tradition of inspiring people all over the world to drink copious amounts of alcohol. And while many a good time is had, and many a good legend created, the truth is, the more alcohol a man drinks, the more he negatively impacts his biology.

Here are 5 reasons you may want to sit this St. Patrick’s Day out.

  1. Excess Alcohol Changes Your DNA

What is binge drinking? According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), binge drinking refers to having more than four or five drinks in a two-hour setting. Well that pretty much describes most 21-40-year-old’s St. Patrick’s Day.

When you partake in binge drinking, you can ACTUALLY change your genetic makeup, according to a study, published in December 2018 in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research. This DNA change results in your body craving more alcohol, and the vicious cycle begins.

  1. An Increased Risk of Developing Cancer

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) cites several studies, such as one published in August 2012 in the journal Annals of Oncology, that have shown consuming alcohol increases your risk of developing a range of cancers, including cancer of the throat, mouth and breast. Yes, men get breast cancer, too! And in men that are heavy drinkers, this risk skyrockets.

  1. You Change Your Gut Microbiome – And NOT for the Better!

Right now, as you read this, there are TRILLIONS of microorganisms – mostly “good” bacteria – living in your digestive tract. These organisms do things like digest your food and help your body produce vitamins.

Alcohol interferes with your gut’s delicate microbiome according to a study published in 2015 in the journal Alcohol Research: Current Reviews. It turns out alcohol can cause bacterial overgrowth (of the “bad” kind), which ultimately leads to gut problems like stomach pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and even skin issues like rosacea.

  1. Negatively Impacts Your Brain’s Structure

Not only does binge drinking lead to temporary memory loss in the form of blackouts, but consistent alcohol consumption can lead to long-term problems with brain function. Heavy drinkers in particular are at risk for changing their brain’s “hard wiring,” which can eventually lead to overall cognitive problems. Research has also shown heavy alcohol consumption can erode brain tissue and raise a man’s risk of stroke.

  1. Leads to Erectile Dysfunction

You may have had a night of partying and found that you had a hard time, well… getting hard. Studies have shown that too much alcohol affects your brain and your penis. This is because alcohol can reduce blood flow, and it’s blood flow that helps you gain and maintain an erection. Alcohol reduces the intensity of your orgasm as well, so even if you were able to have sex, it would not be as pleasurable.

But it’s not just short-term erectile dysfunction (ED) that you need to worry about. The risk for long-term erectile dysfunction has been linked to chronic heavy use of alcohol. In fact, studies have shown that men who have formed a dependency on alcohol have a whopping 60-70% chance of suffering from sexual issues including ED, premature ejaculation and loss of libido.

And to think, all of these health issues can start just by binge drinking ONCE, because remember, that changes your DNA and gets you to want more and more alcohol, and before you know it, you have a problem.

The moral of the story is, this St. Patrick’s Day, go ahead and have some fun, but use your head. Limit your alcohol consumption to one pint of Guinness instead of 6.

 

If you already suffer from erectile dysfunction and low libido, we’ve got some good news. Our Golden Royal Honey is packed with natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help men get their mojo back and be a stud in the bedroom. You don’t need luck this St. Patty’s Day, you just need a little honey.

Natural Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction

love-couples-marriage-relationship-happy-couple-royalty-free-thumbnail

According to the American Urological Association, 1 in 10 men will experience ED at some point in their lives, with their odds increasing as they age. And, according to research, ED affects as many as 30 million men in the United States.

While ED is common and can be caused by many different things from stress to heart issues to lack of sleep and partying too hard, if symptoms persist and your overall health checks out, your doctor is most likely going to prescribe a medication to help you achieve erections.

The most common ED medications include:

  • tadalafil (Cialis)
  • sildenafil (Viagra)
  • vardenafil (Levitra)
  • avanafil (Stendra)

These medications work by increasing the levels of nitric oxide (NO) in the blood. NO is a natural vasodilator, which means it helps your blood vessels to widen, increasing the blood flow. The more blood gets to your penis, the easier it is for you to achieve and maintain an erection.

While these medication can certainly help you achieve an erection, they often come with some not-so-nice side effects such as:

Headaches

This is the most common side effect of ED medications because a sudden increase in blood flow causes headaches. And, unfortunately, switching brands won’t really help because the very thing the medication is supposed to do is what causes the headache.

Body Aches

Many men experience body aches and pains while taking ED medications. Some men report specific pain in their lower back.

Digestive Upset

The most common digestive symptoms while taking ED medications are indigestion and diarrhea.

Dizziness

An increase in nitric oxide can cause some men to become dizzy. While the dizziness is usually mild, it can cause issues for some men depending on their job and daily activities.

There have also been cases of dizziness caused by ED medications that have led to fainting, and this can become a serious health issue. Men who faint while on ED meds are encouraged to make an appointment with their doctor right away.

Changes in Vision

ED medications can temporarily alter eyesight and even cause blurry vision. If you have vision loss already or a retinal disorder called retinitis pigmentosa, ED medications aren’t recommended.

Congestion and Runny Nose

Another common symptom of ED medications is developing either a runny or stuffy nose.

Now with a majority of these side effects, doctors commonly recommend their patient take an over-the-counter medication to help with headaches, stomach upset and congestion. But is that really what you want? To have to take another medication because the first medication is causing health issues?

Most men agree this isn’t the ideal scenario, which is why so many are looking for alternative natural treatments for their erectile dysfunction.

Here are some natural ED remedies that are scientifically backed.

Acupuncture

Many studies have shown promising results when acupuncture has been used to treat ED. For example, a 1999 study found that acupuncture improved the quality of erections and restored sexual activity in 39% of participants.

Panax Ginseng

Panax Ginseng has been called the “herbal Viagra” and has some solid research behind it. A 2008 review of several studies had researchers conclude there was “suggestive evidence for the effectiveness of red ginseng in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.”

Panax ginseng appears to work on two different levels: it offers an anti-inflammatory action and improves blood flow. And best part, no nasty side effects!

Royal Jelly

Royal jelly (RJ) is the honeybee secretion that is fed to “chosen” bee larvae and the queen bee. The substance is loaded with nutrients that helps the queen bee grow 10x larger and live 10x longer than the worker bees.

In one study, healthy volunteers were given either 3000mg of RJ or a placebo. After 6 months the RJ group was found to have increased testosterone levels. Another study gave 83 infertile men varying doses of RJ. After 3 months their testosterone levels increased by over 20%. Researchers also noted improved sperm quality and sexual desire.

Since low testosterone levels are one of the most common causes of ED in men, it stands to reason that finding natural ways to increase it can help.

While we can’t perform acupuncture on you, we are pleased to offer you our Golden Royal Honey, which contains powerful royal jelly, panax ginseng, and other natural ingredients that have been shown to help men achieve long-lasting erections.

If you’re tired of prescription medications that come with nasty side-effects, try our Golden Royal Honey today.

What Can Royal Jelly Do for Your Heart Health?

191219-A-YT850-0004

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!

Try some Golden Royal Honey today!

*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.

Tips for Losing Weight After 40

tape-measure-measure-thick-fat-bacon-overweight

If you’re like a lot of men over the age of 40, it’s gotten harder for you to see your feet. That’s because when men gain weight, they tend to gain it around their midsection.

This isn’t great. Because carrying extra weight in this area can lead to a number of health problems including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

But it doesn’t end there. A study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine has also shown that obesity has been linked to male infertility and erectile dysfunction. The study followed 2,345 Italian male patients who had sought treatment for sexual dysfunction.

The study participants were a mix of men of normal weight, while some were overweight, some were obese, and some were very obese. These participants had lab blood tests done and what is called a penile Doppler ultrasound that measured the blood flow in their penis.

The researchers found that the degree of obesity had a direct correlation to a decrease in testosterone levels. Essentially, the more overweight these men were, the lower their T-levels were.

And the more overweight, the higher their blood pressure readings.

“The link between obesity and ED might be a useful motivation for men to improve their health-related lifestyle choices,” Mario Maggi, MD, co-author of the study, says in a news release.

If ever there was a perfect storm for erectile dysfunction, it’s hypertension mixed with low testosterone levels.

So the moral of this story is, as men age, it gets easier and easier for them to put on weight as their metabolism slows, and as this weight goes on, it creates health issues that have a direct impact on sexual performance.

Men over 40 have to treat weight loss differently than men in their 20s and 30s. Here are some tips to help you get started on your weight loss journey.

Watch Those Calories

Teenage boys and men in their 20s can pound back the beers and eat copious amounts of chicken wings and not gain a single pound. But, as I mentioned, the metabolism slows as we age.

Whether you like it or not, when you hit the BIG 4-0, you’ll need to start paying attention to how many calories you’re eating each day. The most important part of weight loss is to maintain a negative calorie balance. So this means you’ve got to intake less calories than your body requires so you can use stored fat as fuel.

To give you an idea of what this may look like, there are 3500 calories in one pound of fat. If you want to lose one pound of fat per week, you’ll need to cut 500 calories from your daily food intake.

Help Your Body Burn Body Fat

You’ve probably heard a lot of people talk about the benefits of the Keto and Carnivore diets. One of the biggest benefits of these diets is that they help your body turn into a fat-burning machine.

You see, the body can only use two macro nutrients as fuel: fat and carbohydrates. And it can’t use them at the same time. Either your body has been adapted to burn carbs as fuel or it has been adapted to burn fat as fuel.

The average American eats between 200-300 grams of carbohydrates each day. This makes it easy for them to pack on the pounds. But since the body doesn’t recognize fat as a fuel, the body fat keeps getting stored, and stored and stored, but never burned.

To become fat adapted, you need to drop your carbohydrates way down to roughly 20 grams a day. It’s a challenge at first, but once people start eating this way, they usually notice they feel so much better, have better energy and the weight melts off. If you haven’t tried Keto or carnivore, it’s definitely worth it to give it a try.

Perform Resistance Training

It takes more calories to maintain muscle than fat. This is why it was easier for you to eat whatever you wanted as a younger man, because your body had more muscle on it.

Resistance training will not only help you stay strong as you age, but by putting more muscle mass back on your body, you will naturally burn more calories each day.

These three things will help men over 40 beat the battle of the bulge! And, if you need a little help in the bedroom before you reach your weight loss goals, we encourage you to try our Golden Royal Honey. It’s packed with natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help men achieve long-lasting erections to be proud of.

Does Sperm Have a Biological Clock?

oladimeji-ajegbile-URkqBy5EuPg-unsplash

Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock. This is the noise most women hear in their head once they pass the age of 30. That’s because they know their time to conceive and carry a child to term is diminishing with each passing day.

For decades it was believed that only women had to deal with this biological clock, and that men could make a child at any age. Look at some of the world’s most famous men. Carry Grant was 62 years old when his daughter was born. George Clooney fathered his children late in life. Heck Rupert Murdoch fathered a child at 68!

While these men got lucky and had healthy children fairly easily later in life, the truth is, that’s not necessarily the norm. According to research, about half of all infertility cases in America involve male infertility. And sadly, despite this significant number, very few men understand the role their age, health and lifestyle choices play in whether or not they and their partner will conceive.

The B-I-G 40

With the myth that men can be fathers into their golden years, many men have focused on their careers and waited to start their families until they were in their 40s or older. But, just like the health and validity of a woman’s eggs decreases as she ages, the health and validity of a man’s sperm also decreases as he ages. And research has shown that at around age 40, the quality and quantity of a man’s sperm declines, and fairly rapidly.

Beyond having a hard time conceiving, once a male partner is over the age of 45, there is also a greater chance that his partner will have a miscarriage or that the baby may be born with health conditions such as dwarfism, autism and ADHD.

And finally, while men have a hard time expressing their emotions, many feel just as much sadness and guilt as their female partner do when the infertility is due to her health.

Causes of Male Infertility and How to Have Healthy Sperm

As a man ages, he may experience infertility from health conditions such as issues with the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland, a testicular disease, or a sperm transport disorder. These conditions aren’t necessarily a result of any lifestyle choices the man has made and most will require medical intervention.

Having said that, more often than not, lifestyle choices play a very big role in the health of a man’s sperm. Here are some things you can do to ensure your sperm are healthy:

Maintain A Healthy Weight

Research suggests that obesity is linked with decreasing sperm count and sperm motility (how well the sperm swims). So it’s important that you get rid of the gut and stay in shape.

Eat Healthy

You’ll have a much easier time keeping the weight off if you aren’t having fast food every day for lunch and dessert with dinner. It’s important to stay away from processed food and instead opt for whole foods like meat, eggs, produce and whole grains.

Protect Yourself from STDs

Sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia and gonorrhea are known to cause infertility. If you think you’ll want to have a family someday, then limit your number of partners now and always use a condom.

Manage Stress

Stress interferes with sex hormones BIG time and you need your hormones to stay balanced. Find healthy ways (not binge drinking or eating garbage) to beat stress like exercise and meditation.

Supplements

There are many supplements on the market that may help with male fertility. We recommend Golden Royal Honey. Our Golden Royal Honey contains Royal Jelly, ginseng and Long Jack. These natural ingredients have all been scientifically proven to help with male infertility issues. Plus, if you have been experiencing erectile dysfunction, our Golden Royal Honey can help you achieve and keep an erection to be proud of.

6 Awesome Health Benefits of Ginseng

5152649004_1f0e2ff3b2_c

You’ve most likely heard of ginseng and that it offers health benefits, but have you ever tried it for yourself? While it has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine, it is only fairly recently that people in the West have given this herb much consideration.

Well keep reading because I’m going to share with you some of the amazing health benefits ginseng offers. By the end of the article you’ll be asking, “Where can I buy some?”

  1. It’s Chockful of Powerful Antioxidants

Ginseng has long been prized for its antioxidant benefits. In test-tube studies, ginseng compounds were found to increase antioxidant capacity in cells while also inhibiting inflammation. This is big because recent data points to the conclusion that most modern diseases, including aging, are caused by inflammation.

  1. May Boost Brain Function

According to some studies, ginseng may help improve brain functions like mood, behavior and memory. The herb contains powerful compounds like ginsenosides and compound K, which scientists believe may protect the brain against damage caused by free radicals.

It is also believed that ginseng may assist the uptake of blood sugar by cells, and this can help enhance a person’s mental performance so they can avoid mental fatigue. As an example, one study found that taking 400 mg of Panax ginseng daily for eight days improved the participants level of calmness and math skills.

While more studies are necessary, so far the herb has shown benefits to people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, helping them to focus, improve their mood and help with memory retrieval.

  1. May Protect Against Cancer

Studies have found that ginseng may help your risk of developing certain cancers. I mentioned the powerful compounds in ginseng called ginsenosides that have been shown to reduce inflammation and provide antioxidant protection.

Studies have shown that ginsenosides can benefit the natural cell cycle by preventing abnormal cell production and growth. Some studies have found that people taking ginseng regularly had as much as a 16% lower risk of developing cancer.

Some studies have also suggested that ginseng may help improve the health of people undergoing chemotherapy, reducing the undesirable side effects and at the same time enhancing the effect of some treatment drugs.

  1. May Increase Energy Levels

Ginseng has been shown to increase energy levels and fight fatigue. This is most likely thanks to the compounds like polysaccharides and oligopeptides that lower oxidative stress and increase energy production within the cells.

In one study, 90 people suffering from chronic fatigue were either given Panax ginseng or a placebo. Those given the ginseng experienced less physical and mental fatigue than those taking the placebo.

  1. May Help Manage Blood Sugar

Studies have shown ginseng’s ability to help people control their blood sugar levels. This is thanks in part to the herb’s ability to improve pancreatic cell function, boost insulin production and enhance the uptake of blood sugar into the tissues.

  1. Helps Erectile Dysfunction

Research has shown that ginseng may be a potent natural alternative treatment for those suffering from erectile dysfunction.  Those powerful compounds in the herb I have mentioned protect against oxidative stress, which can help protect the blood vessel and tissues in the penis, helping to restore natural function. You could say ginseng puts the FUN back in function!

Now that you know how powerful this funny-looking herb is and how many health benefits it offers, don’t you think it’s time you tried some for yourself? And if, as I predicted, you’re wondering where you can get some, we invite you to try our Golden Royal Honey.

Not only is our Golden Royal Honey packed with Panax Ginseng, it also contains other natural ingredients that have all been scientifically shown to boost your overall health and improve erections.

Try some for yourself today and experience the difference in your own health.

 

6 Ways to Naturally Boost Testosterone Levels

Low levels of testosterone are associated with everything from weight gain, hair loss, fatigue and erectile dysfunction. When older men experience these symptoms, they usually – and quickly – opt for hormone replacement therapy.

But HRT can come with some negative side effects, such as fluid retention, acne and increased urination.

That’s why many men are now searching for ways to boost their testosterone levels naturally.

If you’ve experienced some of the side effects of low testosterone and/or of synthetic hormone replacement therapy, keep reading to learn 6 natural ways you can give your testosterone levels a boost.

  1. Zinc

A zinc deficiency has been associated with low testosterone levels. In fact, a 1996 study found that older men who took a zinc supplement for just 6 weeks saw a big testosterone boost.

As an added bonus, zinc also supports your immune system and plays an important role in cell division.

To get more zinc into your diet, eat more meat, shellfish, dairy and eggs.

  1. Vitamin D

Studies have shown that vitamin D levels are also low in those men who suffer with low testosterone levels.

While you would optimally get all of the vitamin D your body needs through sunshine, that’s not always possible for people who live far from the equator or have darker skin.

The next best thing?

Speak with your doctor about vitamin D supplements. He or she will want to do a blood test to see what your current vitamin D levels are.

  1. Intermittent Fasting

You may have heard certain celebrities like Terry Crews and Hugh Jackman rave about Intermittent Fasting (IF) to keep their bodies in tip-top shape. Intermittent fasting has been shown to increase the production of testosterone in the body.

IF doesn’t have to be hard. You simply shrink your eating window. Some people choose to only eat one meal a day, fasting for the other 23 hours. Others don’t eat for 16 hours and leave themselves and 8-hour window for eating.

  1. Magnesium

Studies have shown a link between low magnesium levels and low testosterone. Increasing your magnesium intake may help boost your levels.

Good news, there are some absolutely delicious foods that are high in magnesium like dark chocolate, avocados, bananas, whole grains and fatty fish like salmon and mackerel.

You may also opt for a magnesium supplement. Taking magnesium at night can help your body relax and get a good night’s sleep, which brings up my next point…

  1. Get Adequate Sleep

Studies have also shown the correlation between a lack of high-quality sleep and decreased testosterone production. Sleep has a big impact on our endocrine systems, so ensuring you get enough sleep each night can help.

  1. Watch Your Weight

Not only does weight gain contribute to the onset of certain diseases like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, it may also lead to a reduction in testosterone production. This is especially true for middle-aged men.

It’s important to eat well and stay active, but particularly important for men as they age. There’s no need to hit the gym 7 days a week. Moving your body for a half hour 3 to 4 days a week, along with a clean diet, is enough to help any unwanted pounds come off.

If you follow these tips but find you could still use a bit of help with your low libido or weak erections, we have some good news. Our Golden Royal Honey is loaded with powerful all-natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help men achieve long-lasting erections and get their erections back.

Can Royal Jelly Protect Your Brain from Disease?

If you or someone you love has recently been diagnosed with dementia, you are not alone. It is currently believed that close to 50 million people globally are living with the disease.

The diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s is a terrifying one, and often people feel like they have been given a life sentence. The interesting thing to note here is that just 40 years ago, deaths from dementia were a rarity.

In fact, in 1979, there were only 857 reported deaths from dementia in the United States. But, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the death rates from dementia and Alzheimer’s rose 55% between 1999 and 2014.

There is hope.

Because while incidents of dementia are on the rise, so is the important research into what exactly is going on. And the findings have been life-altering for many.

It turns out the brain is far more resilient than we once believed. In fact, science is now showing us that Alzheimer’s and dementia are preventable and yes, even REVERSIBLE.  Perhaps with our modern diet changes came negative changes to our brain. Perhaps if we, like our grandparents and their grandparents, made sure we got the right nutrients, we would never have to worry about being diagnosed with dementia.

And that’s what research has pointed to. Dementia’s underlying cause is nutritionally-based, which is why many health experts are now calling dementia Type 3 Diabetes. While more research will need to be conducted, many people are now turning to natural remedies to protect the brain, and royal jelly has proven to be a powerful ally.

Royal Jelly – The Brain’s Number One Defense

While royal jelly is made by bees, it is not at all like the brown stuff in the squeezy bear you keep in your kitchen cupboard. Royal jelly is actually a creamy white substance that is secreted from the glands of young nurse bees. This jelly is fed to young larvae for a few days to make them healthy and strong. But after that, they will never eat it again. That’s because most of the royal jelly of a hive is saved for the Queen Bee.

Here’s where things get interesting. While worker bees only live about 6 days, Queen Bees live for roughly 6 YEARS! She will also grow to be about 60% larger than worker bees.

Clearly there is something in royal jelly that contributes to her excellent health and stature. But we’ll get to that in a little bit. For now, let’s look at the role royal jelly has begun to play in brain health.

About 10 years ago, researchers began looking into the positive impact of royal jelly on neurol degeneration. What they found was that royal jelly has a very positive effect on the hippocampal region of the brain, which is the area most detrimentally affected in people diagnosed with dementia.

Not only has royal jelly been found to prevent neuronal degeneration of the hippocampus, but other studies have found it has the ability to REVERSE cell degeneration and produce new nerve cells. That is incredibly hopeful news for thousands of people and their families affected by dementia and Alzheimer’s.

What Makes Royal Jelly So Powerful for Brain Health?

So, what exactly is in royal jelly that makes it so powerful for brain health? It turns out, a whole bunch of amazing nutrients. In fact, you’d be, or should I say bee, hard-pressed to find another natural substance that offers as much nutrition as royal jelly.

Check this out, royal jelly contains all of the B-complex vitamins, pure acetylcholine, vitamins A, C, D, and E, 18 amino acids, enzymes, hormones, and antibacterial/antibiotic substances.

It’s no wonder the stuff has been used for thousands of years by all different cultures to cure all sorts of health issues.

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with dementia, all is not lost. Ask your doctor about incorporating royal jelly into your diet. A warning: many traditional doctors do not believe nutrition has anything to do with the development or treatment of disease. If this sounds like your doctor, you may want to find a naturopath in your local area to help you on your healing journey and ask their thoughts on royal jelly.

We are proud to offer our customers our Golden Royal Honey from Malaysia that combines royal jelly with other natural ingredients that have been shown to help promote optimal health. You simply won’t find a more potent honey on the market.

How Healthy is Your Sperm?

sperium-2505952_1280

If you’re like most men, you don’t give your sperm a lot of thought. You know they’re there, and in your younger years you take measures to keep your sperm contained so as to avoid any unwanted pregnancies.

But then you get a bit older and want to create a family with someone and your sperm become incredibly important to you. And the longer you’ve waited to start that family, the more it’s likely that the health of your sperm will come into question.

If you and your partner are having a hard time getting pregnant, this article will outline what constitutes the health of your sperm, ways you can make it healthier, and things you should avoid.

What Makes Sperm Healthy?

The health of your sperm is dependent on a few different factors:

Quantity

Can you guess how many sperm should be in one single ejaculation? According to health experts, at least 15 MILLION sperm per millimeter. Too little sperm per ejaculation makes getting pregnant harder because there are fewer candidates to get the very challenging job of fertilizing an egg done.

Movement (motility)

You’ve probably seen video of what sperm look like when they are swimming. There is a lot of wiggling they have to do to get to their final destination, through the woman’s cervix, up her uterus and into her fallopian tubes. This movement is known as motility. Men are considered “fertile” if at least 40% of their sperm have good motility.

Structure

Healthy sperm have a very specific shape: oval heads and long, wispy tails. This structure is what helps them propel themselves to their final destination. The more sperm you have that are shaped abnormally, the more like you will be infertile.

Causes of Male Infertility

Various medical conditions can lead to poor sperm health and infertility including:

  • Testicular disease
  • Problems with the pituitary gland or hypothalamus. These are parts of the brain are responsible for signaling the testicles to produce testosterone and sperm.
  • Sperm transport disorders
  • Age – The health of sperm tends to decrease with age, affecting fertility. This is especially apparent for men over the age of 50.

Things to Avoid for Healthy Sperm

You should focus on avoiding the following to ensure your sperm are as healthy as possible:

Smoking

Studies have shown men who smoke are more likely to have a low sperm count. This goes for tobacco products as well as marijuana.

Consuming Excessive Alcohol

Heavy drinking has been shown to lead to reduced testosterone production, impotence and a decreased sperm count. Yes, you can drink, but do so in moderation. This means for men 1-2 drinks a few times a week or less.

Medications

Certain medications such as calcium channel blockers and antidepressants can lead to male infertility issues. Never stop taking your prescription medications without consulting your doctor but talk to them because he or she may be able to prescribe a substitute that won’t affect your sperm.

Heat

Increased scrotal temperature can definitely affect sperm production. It’s important to wear loose-fitting underwear as well as avoid saunas and hot tubs. Also, hot laptops can be a problem so watch how long your laptop is actually on your lap.

Best Ways to Ensure Your Sperm are Healthy

Here are some of the best ways you can increase your chances of producing healthy sperm:

Maintain a Healthy Weight

Research suggests that obesity is linked with decreasing sperm count and motility.

And speaking of…

Eat a Nutritious Diet

Junk food is not going to help get your sperm into shape. Instead, opt for whole foods like lean meats, eggs and organic produce.

Manage Stress

Stress can affect the hormones that produce sperm so take the steps necessary to manage yours in healthy ways.

Prevent STIs

Sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhea are notorious for causing infertility in men. To stay safe, limit your number of sexual partners and use a condom each time you have sex.

We also encourage you to add Golden Royal Honey to your diet. Fortified with ingredients scientifically proven to increase libido and help male fertility, our Golden Royal Honey is an easy and delicious way to get your sperm in tip-top shape.
