What is royal jelly?

It is well known that bee products have healing properties and that they are good for human health, which is testified to by many positive experiences in the treatment of numerous health issues and conditions. In addition, much is also known about how significant these gifts of nature are for the preventive maintenance of health, vitality, and longevity of the human organism. So far, you must have used the best-known products of worker bees – honey and propolis – and you must be familiar with the benefits gained from consuming these, but are you familiar with the significance and multiple benefits of royal jelly consumption?

Royal jelly is the most complete bee product, the healthiest kind of food of natural origin in the world and it cannot be produced artificially.

Royal jelly is a substance that is secreted by the hypopharyngeal glands of young worker bees, used for the nutrition of the queen bee and queen larvae.  At the same time, it is the only food consumed by the queen bee throughout her lifetime, and thanks to it she can live up to fifty times longer than an average worker bee, thus ensuring the survival of the beehive.

As the most powerful natural biostimulator and bioregenerator, royal jelly is a valuable means for the preservation of good health and for the acceleration of the recovery/healing process, for which reason it has been termed a ‘functional food’.

The biological value of royal jelly is mentioned in the oldest written documents dating as far back as 3,000–1,000 BC. The healing properties of royal jelly have been known ever since the time of Hippocrates.

Royal jelly is available in the form of lyophilized royal jelly, frozen, in capsules and in powder.

In its production process, Revita uses lyophilized royal jelly.

Why lyophilized and why from China?

The lyophilized form of royal jelly preserves all of its natural active substances and it is an excellent supplement to everyday diet. After being harvested from the beehive, royal jelly keeps its bioactive properties for just 48 hours. The lyophilization procedure is the only way to prolong royal jelly’s bioactivity to a period of two full years. When it is to be consumed, lyophilized royal jelly is melted in water, whereby it regains the form and properties as though it had just been harvested from the beehive. Research has shown that 100 milligrams of royal jelly in a lyophilized form per day produce the best and longest-lasting effects on one’s organism.


Revita products contain the highest-quality lyophilized royal jelly originating from China, a country with a centuries-long tradition in manufacturing it and with the annual production of 3,000 tonnes of royal jelly, of which 1,700–1,800 tonnes are exported abroad. China is believed to be one of the leading exporters of this raw material.

Apart from our years-long cooperation with distributers from China, whose quality we fully trust, another reason for our decision to procure royal jelly from this Asian country is the fact that China has used royal jelly in traditional medicine for hundreds of years, which makes the Chinese beekeeping industry better acquainted with the manufacturing of royal jelly and better equipped for it.

Royal jelly contains proteins, carbohydrates and useful lipids (including vitamins and minerals). It is rich in vitamin B and different minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, phosphorus and potassium, including also 17 amino acids, 8 of which are essential.
