Properties and Uses:
Fountain of Youth Royal jelly is a white, milky substance produced in the glands of worker honeybees to feed the queen bee. All the larvae receive this royal jelly or bees' milk for the first three days of their lives, Afterwards, they are nourished on a diet of honey, pollen and water. This bees' milk is a concentrated super food responsible for turning an ordinary worker bee into a long-lived reproductive dynamo-the queen bee. It is her only food. The queen bee grows 40 to 60% larger than the worker bees and lives five or more years compared to her genetically identical sister whose lifespan is only 40 days.
