The secret world of the hive
In this bee-utiful world the Queen is fed a special substance from the day she is hatched, that allows her to live 50 times longer than regular bees, lay 1500 to 2000 eggs per day and grow larger than any of the other bees in her hive!
This amazing food is known as Royal Jelly and is initially fed to all larvae until they are considered mature, at which time they are switched over to pollen. Royal Jelly is produced by the worker ‘nurse’ bees and is especially rich in protein. It contains a range of vitamins including high levels of the B vitamins, B6 and pantothenic acid.
Royal Jelly also contains minerals and fatty acids, in particular 10-hydroxy-2-decanoic acid (10H2DA), a special type of fatty acid that is unique to Royal Jelly. 10H2DA is felt to be responsible for many of the health promoting benefits of Royal Jelly. Comvita Royal Jelly contains a guaranteed 10mg of 10H2DA per capsule.
Traditionally, Royal Jelly has been taken by both men and women to help maintain a youthful appearance and to soften the skin.
Our other combination of Royal Jelly and Evening Primrose Oil is especially designed for women to provide a special blend of nutrients that contribute to hormonal health – especially during premenstrual and menopausal periods.
Evening Primrose Oil has traditionally been known to offer relief from symptoms such as hot flushes, sleeping difficulties and mood swings.
Royal Jelly is a highly nutritious supplement rich in protein and anti-stress B vitamins that can assist the body’s metabolism and the maintenance of general wellbeing.
Take your cue from bee royalty, and eat like a queen to improve your vitality and get an edge over the rest of the worker bees!
