Royal Jelly Can Help Reduce Cholesterol

Effects of Royal Jelly on Cholesterol Levels

May 24, 2017

Scientists have revealed that a 3-month treatment with Royal Jelly can reduce triglyceride, LDL-cholesterol and subsequently the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Cholesterol is found in all cells and serves many functions throughout the body. Our bodies need cholesterol but too much can be harmful. Elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, known as the bad cholesterol, accumulates in the walls of blood vessels leading to formation of atherosclerotic plaques that narrow the vessels and inhibit blood flow. This process leads to cardiovascular disease.

Various classes of medication such as Statins, Niacin and Fibrates are administered to lower blood LDL cholesterol.

A recently published Pharmaceutical Biology article evaluated the hypocholesterolemic effects of Royal Jelly, a secretion produced by worker honey bees, on healthy subjects.
