What are the benefits of royal jelly?

In the hive, la Royal jelly  is, as its name indicates, the exceptional food: it is reserved for the queen, who will be fed with it all her life, as well as for larvae less than 3 days old. This white, gelatinous, milk-like substance is secreted by the glands of young nurse bees. 

The queen is fed exclusively with royal jelly and she can live up to 50 times longer than a worker, ie 5 to 6 years. Be careful, the queen is not idle, she lays all her life at an incredible rate (2000 to 3000 eggs per day). Royal jelly is therefore a nutritional bomb.
