ROYAL JELLY

OTHER NAME(S):

Bee Saliva, Bee Spit, Gelée Royale, Honey Bee Milk, Honey Bee's Milk, Jalea Real, Lait des Abeilles, Royal Bee Jelly.<br/><br/>

Overview

Overview Information

Royal jelly is a milky secretion produced by worker honey bees. It typically contains about 60% to 70% water, 12% to 15% proteins, 10% to 16% sugar, 3% to 6% fats, and 2% to 3% vitamins, salts, and amino acids. Its composition varies depending on geography and climate. This product gets its name from the fact that bees use it for the development and nurturing of queen bees. Some people use royal jelly as medicine. Don’t confuse royal jelly with bee pollen or bee venom.

Royal jelly is used for asthma, hay fever, liver disease, pancreatitis, type 2 diabetes, diabetic foot ulcers, sleep troubles (insomnia), fatigue (tiredness) secondary to cancer, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), infertility (inability to have a child), menopausal symptoms, stomach ulcers, kidney disease, bone fractures, menopausal symptoms, skin disorders, and high cholesterol. It is also used as a general health tonic, for fighting the effects of aging, and for boosting the immune system.

Some people apply royal jelly directly to the skin as a tonic or to the scalp to encourage hair growth.

How does it work?

There is very little scientific information available about the effects of royal jelly in people. In animals, royal jelly seems to have some activity against tumors and the development of “hardening of the arteries.”

Uses

Uses & Effectiveness?

Possibly Effective for

  • Menopausal symptoms. Early research shows that taking royal jelly by mouth for 3 months can increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL or “good”) cholesterol and decrease low-density lipoprotein (LDL or “bad”) cholesterol in postmenopausal women. Other research shows that taking a product containing royal jelly and flower pollen by mouth for 12 weeks can reduce menopausal symptoms and improve feelings of well-being in menopausal women. Another product containing royal jelly, evening primrose oil, damiana, and ginseng also seems to decrease menopausal symptoms. Applying royal jelly in the vagina may improve quality of life and sexual problems in menopausal women similarly to intravaginal estrogen. But applying estrogen inside the vagina seems to reduce vaginal inflammation in menopausal women better than royal jelly.

Possibly Ineffective for

  • Seasonal allergies (hayfever). Taking a specific royal jelly product (Bidro) by mouth for 3-6 months before and during pollen season does not seem to improve stuffy nose, sneezing, or eye discomfort in children with seasonal allergies.

Insufficient Evidence for

  • Tiredness in people with cancer. Early research shows that taking a mixture of processed honey and royal jelly twice daily for 4 weeks improves feelings of tiredness in some people with cancer.
  • Diabetes. Some research shows that taking royal jelly by mouth once daily for 8 weeks improves average blood sugar and blood insulin levels in people with diabetes. But other research shows that taking royal jelly as a single dose or three times daily for 8 weeks doesn’t improve blood sugar or blood insulin levels in people with diabetes.
  • Diabetic foot ulcers. Some early research shows that applying royal jelly to ulcers after cleansing and removal of dead tissue does not improve healing. But other early research shows that applying a specific ointment containing royal jelly and panthenol for up to 6 months after cleansing and removal of dead tissue may improve the healing of diabetic foot ulcers.
  • Infertility. Early research shows that applying a solution containing royal jelly, Egyptian bee honey, and bee bread to the vagina for 2 weeks may increase the rate of pregnancy in couples with fertility problems due to reduced sperm movement (asthenozoospermia).
  • High cholesterol. Early research shows that taking royal jelly by mouth might lower cholesterol levels in people with high cholesterol.
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Early research shows that taking a product containing royal jelly, bee pollen extract, and bee pollen with pistil extract by mouth for 2 menstrual cycles decreases some symptoms of PMS including irritability, weight increases, and swelling.
  • Weight loss. Research shows that taking royal jelly by mouth once daily for 8 weeks slightly decreases body weight in overweight people with diabetes. But the improvement might not be clinically meaningful.
  • Asthma.
  • Baldness.
  • Bone fractures.
  • Boosting immunity.
  • Kidney disease.
  • Liver disease.
  • Pancreatitis.
  • Skin disorders.
  • Stomach ulcers.
  • Trouble sleeping (insomnia).
  • Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of royal jelly for these uses.
Side Effects

Side Effects & Safety

Royal jelly is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken by mouth appropriately. A specific product containing a combination of royal jelly, bee pollen extract, and bee pollen plus pistol extract (Femal by Natumin Pharma) has been used safely for up to 2 months. Another combination product containing royal jelly and flower pollen (Melbrosia) has been used safely for up to 3 months. Royal jelly might cause serious allergic reactions including asthma, swelling of the throat, and death. Rarely, it might cause the colon to bleed, accompanied by stomach pain and bloody diarrhea.

Royal jelly is also POSSIBLY SAFE when applied to the skin appropriately. However, it has caused inflammation and allergic rash when applied to the scalp.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Children: Royal jelly is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth for up to 6 months.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of using royal jelly if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Asthma or allergies: Don’t use royal jelly if you have asthma or allergies to bee products. It could cause some serious reactions, even death.

Inflamed skin (dermatitis): Royal jelly might make dermatitis worse.

Low blood pressure: Royal jelly might lower blood pressure. If your blood pressure is already low, taking royal jelly might make it drop too much.

Interactions

Interactions?

Moderate Interaction

Be cautious with this combination

!
  • Warfarin (Coumadin) interacts with ROYAL JELLY

    Royal jelly might increase the effects of warfarin (Coumadin). Taking royal jelly with warfarin (Coumadin) might result in an increased chance of bruising or bleeding.

Dosing

Dosing

The following doses have been studied in scientific research:

BY MOUTH:

  • Menopausal symptoms: 150 mg of royal jelly has been taken daily for 3 months. One or two capsules of a product containing royal jelly and flower pollen has been used for up to 12 weeks. Two capsules of a product containing royal jelly, evening primrose oil, damiana, and ginseng has been taken daily for 4 weeks.
