CBN.com – Nature is full of surprises. When the Psalmist declared, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it" (Ps. 24:1a), he surely understood the awesome, complex beauty and mystery of God's creation. Nowhere is this more evident than inside the beehive -- where a complex system of orderliness and efficiency continues to produce some of the most beneficial natural products known to man: honey, pollen, propolis, and the "crown jewel" of bee products, Royal Jelly.
For centuries, people around the world have used natural products from the beehive for a variety of health and beauty benefits. Bee products are created in a natural environment. Bee products are remarkable in consisting of essential nutrients and important amino acids -- and none more so than Royal Jelly.
Royal Jelly: A Hidden Treasure, A Natural Wonder
Hidden deep inside the beehive, in one single cell, is a rare treasure: a natural food substance found only in minute amounts -- yet responsible for a magnificent transformation. It's not honey, pollen or propolis… it's Royal Jelly. This rare and precious food substance is a nutritional wonder produced by worker bees as the exclusive diet of the Queen Bee. While the life span of the average worker bee, feeding on honey and pollen, is roughly six weeks, the Queen Bee, feeding only on Royal Jelly, undergoes an amazing transformation that allows her to live up to six years. Without her exclusive diet of Royal Jelly, the life span of the Queen Bee would revert to that of the worker bees -- about six weeks. Nowhere else in nature is a food substance responsible for a creature's longevity.
Royal Jelly: What's in the Mix?
Chemical analysis of Royal Jelly began approximately 115 years ago. Over the years, science has examined the components in Royal Jelly to try to determine what mix of ingredients could make such a vital difference in a creature's life. They've found that Royal Jelly consists of intact protein molecules, peptides and free amino acids; carbohydrates, as monosaccharides and disaccharides; lipids including fatty acids, neutral fats and phospholipids; vitamins, minerals, and a variety of biochemical cofactors; nucleic acids; and a distinctive 'marker' compound: trans-10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid (10HDA), which is absolutely unique to Royal Jelly. Although many compounds found in Royal Jelly are in microgram quantities, they can still act as catalysts with co-enzymes or act synergistically as intended by God. It's believed that the action of these compounds combined as they are naturally in Royal Jelly is far greater than the sum of their actions taken separately.
But there's something else. Also in the mix is something that science has yet to comprehend or replicate. In fact, 4 percent of Royal Jelly components defy analysis. Because of this "mystery compound," Royal Jelly can never be recreated by man in a laboratory. It truly is a mysterious wonder and gift of nature.
Royal Jelly: Nature's Secret for Man
It's no secret that Royal Jelly is good for the bees… but many people don't realize that this precious food substance is also highly beneficial for man. Millions of people throughout the world supplement their diets with Royal Jelly, for energy, stamina and vitality.* Additionally, research suggests Royal Jelly may play a role in metabolic processes involved with the production of cellular energy in the form of ATP.*
Noted nutritionist Robert Crayhon says: "Royal Jelly is one of those truly rare gifts of nature, a nutritional wonder from the beehive that is unlike any substance we have ever known. It is neither a vitamin nor a drug… but a remarkable dietary food substance that helps nourish the body… keeping it energized and nutritionally strong."*
As science uncovers more and more of God's "secrets of nature" for the good of all mankind, people around the world are continuing to discover the health and beauty benefits of natural substances like those found in the beehive -- and especially nature's greatest wonder, Royal Jelly! Truly, "the earth is the Lord's… and everything in it!"
