Recent Research has found that Royal Jelly may have a positive influence lowering cholesterol.
Cholesterol is a type of fat that is imperative to functions all over your body, it circulates through the bloodstream. It is used to make sex hormones such as progesterone, testosterone and estrogen. Cholesterol is also used by the liver to make bile; which is essential for digesting fats.
BUT if there is an excess of cholesterol it can build up in your body, within the bloodstream. You may develop deposits within your blood vessels; eventually growing, which creates difficulty for your blood to flow through your arteries freely. Sometimes these deposits can then suddenly break away, forming a clot. Clots can cause heart attacks or strokes and unfortunately sometimes have dire consequences.
Many people are unaware they have high cholesterol as there are usually no symptoms – the only way to confirm is to have a blood test.
While there are lifestyle choices you can pursue to lower your cholesterol levels, it has also been discovered that Royal Jelly, taken as a daily supplement, may also have a positive effect lowering cholesterol levels.
A scientific study led in Japan tested the effects of Royal Jelly on 15 volunteers to see how it affected their cholesterol levels. After taking 6 grams of Royal Jelly per day for 4 weeks, it was observed that total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) decreased significantly, without reducing High Density Lipoprotein levels (HDL) – which is the good cholesterol or Triglyceride (TG).
This is amazing news for anyone who is looking to lower their cholesterol levels and maintain a healthy balance!
Another study was conducted with subjects taking only 350 milligrams of Royal Jelly daily for 3 months. This also had very positive results; considerably lowering the TC and LDL-c levels through improving the levels of DHEA-S with then lessens the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Taking 350mg of Royal Jelly as a daily supplement for as little as 3 months may significantly lower your excess cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease!
