Our fresh royal jelly comes straight from the hive with nothing added. No artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or additives. Just pure, unprocessed fresh royal jelly harvested by caring beekeepers from strong and resilient hives.
Otherwise known as nature’s best-kept secret, fresh royal jelly is the “milk” queen bees consume, and is thought to contribute to their long lifespan. Produced by nurse bees, this milky, pale yellow, creamy liquid is the queen bee’s only source of food and it is where she gets all of her energy to lay more than 1500 eggs per day! Thanks to royal jelly, queen bees can live up to 4 years which is almost 50 times longer than a worker bee.
We source royal jelly from the rural remote areas of the Anhui, Hebei, Shandong provinces of mainland China where beekeepers have been producing royal jelly for decades. Many of the families we source our royal jelly from have been keeping bees for three generations or more. As the senior beekeeper retires, children are taking over the business and continuing to grow and establish larger colonies. We fully trust the quality of our product and test each batch of royal jelly to ensure freshness, potency, and to ensure there are no prohibited substances.
One of the hidden secrets of the royal jelly industry is that 99% of royal jelly comes from China because there is very little royal jelly production in the United States or other countries.
