Hi my name is Charlotte Skiles. I am a nutrition consultant and clinical herbalist with Eat in Peace Wellness Consulting located in Austin, Texas. And the topic that I will be addressing today is what is royal jelly? Well royal jelly is produced by a particular gland in a bee. And then that royal jelly is used to feed the larva in the bee colony, in the beehive. So it's basically food produced for the children in the bee colony. That's what it is so to speak, I guess the bigger question is how is this of benefits to humans? There are a number of products sold on the market that are composed of royal jelly. They contain mostly water, a couple of B vitamins, maybe some enzymes and that's what you're getting when you use that particular supplement. I would be a bit more of a proponent of using honey as a means of us getting food and nourishment from bee colonies because that's what is tradition. Honey is an age old sweetener. So that's what I have to say about royal jelly, keep it for the bees.
