Royal Jelly May Extend Your Lifespan 蜂王漿可以延長您的壽命

Tuesday 04/07/2021 ( — A study report in 2003 published in Experimental Gerontology suggests that eating royal jelly that queen bees use may extend your lifespan.

In the animal study, different groups of mice ate the same diet with different doses of royal jelly for 15 weeks. And researchers measured 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), a biomarker of oxidative stress in the blood of the mice to determine the efficacy of this supplement on oxidative stress. They also recorded how long the different groups of mice lived.

It turned out that the mice on a diet supplemented with royal jelly lowered the levels of the biomarker indicating oxidative stress or DNA damage. And the treated mice were found to survive for a 25% longer time than controls.

Royal jelly is the food intended for queen bees that live much longer than worker bees. It is speculative that royal jelly contains something that may promote longevity.

However, the dose matters like in all other cases. The effective dose ranges from 6 mg royal jelly /kg body weight to 60 mg/kg. It seems that within this range, the effect does not vary much.

Shin-ichiroInoue from Fujisaki Institute, Hayashibara Biochemical Laboratories, Inc. in Okayama, Japan and colleagues conducted the study. They concluded that eating royal jelly may extend lifspan through protecting against oxidative stress which otherwise damages DNA and other molecular components.

Royal jelly can be produced in farms where beekeepers use special facility for bees to make royal jelly and then they do the harvesting. Because the production may not be 100% natural, rumor has it that some royal jelly products on the market may be tainted with a variety of impurities or even toxins like pesticides. Just do some search before you buy any royal jelly to make certain that the product is as pure as can be.

Royal jelly consumption can also improve memory and cognition and reduce risk of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a study published in 2020 in Heiliyon.

Also royal jelly is not thermally treated and it contains active proteins, enzymes and hormones. Studies have suggested that girls would enter puberty faster and accelerate the development of ovarian functions if eating royal jelly. (Dr. Lu)
