A power pack of proteins, 18 amino acids, carbohydrates, fatty acids and B-complex vitamins, as well as traces of vitamins A, C, D and E, Royal Jelly's most powerful constituent is 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid or 10-HDA, which can inhibit the growth of bacteria or fungi and is also linked to growth and immunity. 10-HDA makes up half of Royal Jelly's fatty acid content and is an important factor in testing for the product's quality and potency. All Natural Life™ Royal Jelly capsules contain a guaranteed 6% of 10-HDA 200mg on input, equivalent to Royal jelly 1000mg (1.1% HDA).
Royal Jelly is also a source of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, or chemical messenger, which plays a role in improving memory and in strengthening learning and sexual function.
Scientists first recognised the power of Royal Jelly in the simple observation that the queen bee grows bigger and lives longer than her genetically identical worker bees, with the only difference between the two being the queen's lifelong diet of nutrient rich Royal Jelly.
While it is believed that Royal Jelly may increase vitality, improve digestion and condition the skin, hair and nails, potential new benefits, such as relieving stress, improving liver function, lowering cholesterol, good dental health (recommended by Dentists), and anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, are also being discovered.
