“There is a saying that you can actually live on royal jelly and water.”
“As young girl and still today, I get a shot of royal jelly every day to support my immune system,” Marie-Laure Fournier, a public relations official from France, tells the publication Byrdie.
Royal Jelly is said to be ingested by the Queen Bee to help her live longer than the rest of the colony.
“Just as royal jelly helps to significantly extend the queen’s life span, the antioxidant compounds found in royal jelly can also work to eliminate the free radicals that normally cause premature cell aging,” writes Byrdie. “This property is what has led to the wide use of royal jelly in anti-aging skincare products.”
