How do you get royal jelly?
Royal jelly comes from bees, which produce this substance to feed the larvae of the hive in their first days of life and the queens throughout their lives. Since bees do not have the capacity to store royal jelly, they produce it only when they need it, so the amount of production is very small. Even so, beekeepers have developed various methods to obtain royal jelly.
One of the most used methods is to leave the hive without the queen bee, so that the rest of the bees begin to generate royal jelly to feed the larvae and generate a new queen. During this process, which usually takes about three days, beekeepers encourage the creation of royal jelly by adding honey, pollen and water to the hive to provide it with more nutrition. And after three days, just before the new queen is generated, they carry out the harvest and remove the royal jelly from the hive.

Quality of royal jelly “Reina Real”
The royal jelly with which we work at Robis is fresh and natural, not having undergone any freeze-drying process, so it maintains all its properties. The 10-HDA is an indication of the quality of the jelly, responsible for a large part of its properties. Depending on the harvest time, an increase in 10-hydroxydecanoic acid (10-HDA), the most important fatty acid present in royal jelly and with proven antibiotic action, has been verified. The royal jelly in Robis products contains more than 2% in 10 HDA, which is equivalent to 6% in 10 HDA or more, of freeze-dried royal jelly.
How much royal jelly should be consumed daily?
Ingesting one ampoule daily helps the body to take advantage of the properties and benefits of royal jelly, especially in periods when, due to the activities to be carried out or the surrounding circumstances, it is more necessary to help recover the energy of the body and increase resistance to fatigue and effort every day.
In addition, at the immunological level it serves as a reinforcement for the body and the maintenance of a good state of health, helping to prevent flu and viral processes, and strengthens our defenses, making it ideal as a complement to strengthen the immune system .
Children can also consume one ampoule daily, which is of great help for their development, growth and for the strengthening of their immune system.
