Royal jelly: "bee milk"
Royal jelly is whitish substance with a jelly texture and made by young bees for the queen bee to eat throughout her life. It is also known as "bee milk", and contains between 50% and 65% water, along with many other substances. Royal jelly was discovered in the middle of the 20th century and is often compared to honey, but has a different taste and colour: it is a pale yellow colour and tastes sour, not sweet. But its biggest difference from honey is its range of properties: it is rich in carbohydrates, proteins, fats and vitamins, making it your best ally when tiredness kicks in in the winter.
The benefits of royal jelly in the winter
Royal jelly is a source of energy and helps to combat tiredness related to a change in season. By strengthening immune defences, it acts as a real stimulant for the body; it contains B vitamins, mineral salts, oligoelements and amino acids, which help to build both mental and physical strength back up. It is a real natural pick-me-up that helps to fight fatigue, exhaustion and even depression. But its powers do not stop there: it is proven to be very effective for memory loss, makes up for deficiencies in the body, improves resistance to stress and increases appetite.
