What does royal jelly contain?
Royal jelly contains an average of about 65% water, 12% protein, 12% sugar, 6% lipids, 5% organic acids, hormones, mineral salts and many vitamins. The content of vitamins is much higher than in honey or pollen. Royal jelly protein consists mainly of albumin and globulins. It contains from 18 to 25 amino acids, while about 10% of amino acids are free, easily digested by humans. In terms of nutritional value, it is second only to chicken egg white, significantly exceeding the nutritional value of beef protein and cow's milk. Numerous enzymes are present in breast milk, including proteases, amylase and invertase. It is worth noting the high content (2 - 12 μg / g) of the neurohormone - acetylcholine and a small amount of sex hormones (estradiol, progesterone and testosterone).
Milk contains more than twenty macro- and microelements, including copper, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, sulfur, manganese, nickel, cobalt, silicon, chlorine, bismuth, arsenic. Milk is a treasure trove of vitamins. Pantothenic acid, nicotinic acid, vitamin PP and inositol are present in large quantities, while vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12 are present in smaller quantities. On the contrary, fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E) are present in trace amounts. In addition, it has bacteriostatic and bactericidal properties. Fresh milk is bacteriostatic even at a dilution of 1: 1000. Royal jelly consists of lipid substances, including saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, including EPA, phospholipids, sterols and waxes. The most characteristic group is unsaturated carboxylic acids, the main representative of which is 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid. Its content among fatty acids can reach 66%. Royal jelly also contains about 5% organic acids, which makes it acidic. The peculiarity of this product is pyruvic and lactic acids. Of the reducing sugars, breast milk contains mainly glucose and fructose, and to a lesser extent, complex sugars such as sucrose, maltose and gentibiose.
The benefits of a mixture of honey and royal jelly
One of the most important biological properties of royal jelly is the strengthening of metabolic processes and tissue renewal. This product increases protein metabolism, increases the number of erythrocytes and hemoglobin levels. It is assumed that the iron and zinc ions that are part of it, greatly contribute to this. During the study, the subjects observed rapid weight gain, increased viability, accelerated puberty, increased reproductive activity and life expectancy by approximately 30% compared with control groups. Animal studies show that royal jelly is a nutritious product that is well absorbed by the body. These values are due to the presence of compounds such as amino acids, sugars, vitamins, trace elements, enzymes and free fatty acids.
Reception and dosage
Royal jelly can be purchased at pharmacies. It comes in the form of lozenges, capsules and syrup. However, a mixture of honey and milk 2 grams of milk per 200 grams of honey (1% solution) is much more useful. Consume a teaspoon of the mixture twice a day. Time: an hour before meals and 2-3 hours after lunch. Treatment should last from 3-4 weeks to two months and repeat once or twice a year. It is recommended to carry out two procedures a year prophylactically, supporting milk with pollen.
Storage of honey mixture of royal jelly
Royal jelly is an unstable product, it turns yellow and dries quickly when stored at ambient temperature, and its biological activity is reduced due to the decomposition of many components. Fresh milk is sensitive to light and high temperatures. Closed in an airtight container, it retains its properties for several days at room temperature.
Store a mixture of honey and milk in the refrigerator at 0-5 ° C. So it can be stored for a year. Honey with the addition of 1% royal jelly was considered the most effective mixture. You can store it in a dark place for a year, and in the refrigerator even longer.
