United States' Top 25 Nutritional Supplements

14. Royal Jelly

Royal jelly saw an 18.3 percent increase in dollar sales for the year ending January 2004. Royden Brown, author of the Bee Hive Product Bible (Avery, 1993), touts royal jelly as “one of nature’s best kept secrets.” A blend of proteins, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, royal jelly may impart health benefits to humans when used in supplements and skin care products. The pantothenic acid present in royal jelly, for example, has been shown to “increase the life span of white mice,” and, Bee Hive says, its gamma globulin is said to help the body internally “fight against bacteria, viruses and toxins.” A human trial described by Shawn Talbott in A Guide to Understanding Dietary Supplements (Haworth Press, 2003) demonstrated that hyperlipidemic subjects receiving daily royal jelly supplementation saw a “significant reduction in total serum lipids (10 percent) and cholesterol (14 percent).” Christianson says, “[R]oyal jelly may have some efficacy as a general adaptogen for maintaining stress response.”
