How is royale jelly made?
The six to twelve day old worker bees produce royal jelly in special food glands, the so-called hypopharyngeal and submaxillary glands. These glands are located on the bee's head in the upper jaw. It is suspected, and research has already been carried out, that royal jelly has different epigenetic effects. It is believed that royal jelly activates certain genes that are responsible for longevity and a robust body. Hence the huge difference between a queen bee and a worker bee.
How is royal jelly made by beekeepers?
The natural reproductive instinct of a bee colony is used for the production of royal jelly. This happens in the so-called swarm time. The beekeeper builds up queen breeding so that the royal jelly can be obtained. This means that he creates a frame with artificial cells (wax bowls) in which worker bees are located. The breeding bees think these are queen larvae and begin to feed them with royal jelly. After three days, the largest amount of high-quality royal jelly is available and can be removed by the beekeeper.

There have been numerous studies and traditions worldwide for many centuries. Thousands of scientists from different countries have now studied the compositions, properties, applications, contraindications and dosage instructions of bee products.

In rare cases, however, hypersensitivity can also occur. If you suspect an intolerance, please test the products (e.g. creams) on the skin in advance.
People suffering from asthma are not recommended to take royal jelly internally.
