Royal Jelly is a special substance of the beehive. Royal Jelly is solely responsible for the incredible transformation of a queen bee from an ordinary worker bee. The queen bee begins life genetically identical to any of the sexless worker bees. A group of bees called Nurse Bees produce Royal Jelly for the hive. Thay eat large amounts of Bee Pollen to use as the raw ingredients for the production of Royal Jelly by their bodies. The Nurse Bees then secrete Royal Jelly by their pharyngeal glands. The Royal Jelly is fed directly to the "Queen To Be". Soon after starting this diet she is transformed into a larger, superior bee. She matures one and a half times faster than normal bees. She also grows 40% larger in size and weighs 60% more. During her life she will lay over 3 million eggs, which weigh more than 3500 times her body weight. She will live 5 to 7 years while the workers only live 7 to 8 weeks. All this is possible due to the miracle of royal jelly!What Is The Composition of Royal Jelly?
Royal jelly is so complex that it has not yet been possible to fully analyze it. Of course, it is impossible to synthesize it in a lab! We do know that it contains the following: natural hormones, all of the B-complex vitamins, and it is rich in pantothenic acid. It also contains nucleic acids, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids (especially Omega 3's), acetyl choline, lecithin, collagen and gamma globulin - a key component of the immune system. Of all of the Superfoods, Royal Jelly is the most intriguing, both nutritionally and effectively!
Royal Jelly is a Mystery
Bees create royal jelly from their own bodies. As are many things in nature, it is difficult to describe and explain this substance. It is a “milk” like substance fed to all the larva, drones, workers and queens but only the queens through their life. Queen bees are made not born and most of the reason for this appears to be her diet of royal jelly. Apparantly, because of her royal jelly diet she lives much longer and is much bigger than the other bees. Why this is, is a mystery. It is the only demonstratable substance known in nature that actually extends life, in this case, the life of the bee. Bees not fed royal jelly, workers and drones, live much shorter lives of 6 weeks, more or less, compared to the possible years of the queen bee. There is no identifiable reason to explain this phenomenon.
CC Pollen Co hopes to educate and bring an understanding of nature and the beehive and the unique and unusual products of the bees and nature into the minds and bodies of humanity. As the modern world moves forward in the direction of mega industry, mega agriculture and mega pharmaceuticals the balance of our individual existence will increasingly become more vulnerable and dangerous. CC Pollen Co founder Royden Brown stated, “WHILE HEALTH ISN’T EVERYTHING, WITHOUT HEALTH, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS”. In the mega agri-industrial world we live in of denatured, processed foods and drugs, those words ring louder and louder with each passing day. The beehive’s complexity stands as a natural balance against the onslaught of the “mega’s”. The bees and their place in our world is vitally important beyond our understanding. “bees are influenced most of all by cosmic forces…….by way of the beehive, the entire cosmos can find its way into human beings and make them sound in mind and body” from Rudolf Steiner.
