Anti-Cancer Effect of Royal Jelly

Cancer is a very common disease nowdays. The causes of cancer could have been food, beverage, environment, inheritance and others. It is indeed a threat to human health and life. To avoid contracting cancer, one must live a healthy life. One must pay special care and attention to his lifestyle and food.

Royal jelly in its fresh or lyophilized form is a health supplement. One of the important benefits of it is that it is anti-cancer. It can prevent cancer or prolong the proliferation of cancer cells.

One of the precious ingredients in it is 10-Hydroxy-2-Decenoic Acid (10-HDA). 10-HDA can not be manufactured artificially. It has a substantial effect in anti-cancer function. It exerts inhibiting effect, preventing both cell proliferation and migration.

There are many researchers that show the evidence of the anti-cancer effect of royal jelly.

In an experiment, Japanese researchers fed it to mice before transplanting different type of cancers into them. It was found that the life of the mice was prolonged by 20%. The tumor cells disintegrated and they were 50% of the size of that in the untreated mice.

It is that inferred that human sarcoma cells would be destroyed by the compounds in the royal jelly just the same as the sarcoma cells implanted into the mice.

A study was conducted on the Bulgarian beekeepers. It was discovered that the beekeeper population suffered 20% fewer cancer death than the Bulgarian population as a whole. This is attributed to the lifestyle of beekeepers who normally take royal jelly, pollen and honey. Beeekeepers are often bitten by the honey bees which leave a substance called venom in their body. Venom is another substance which can prevent cancer.

Breast cancer is a threat to the middle-aged women. Bisphenol A (BPA) is an environmental estrogen that stimulates proliferation of human breast cancer MCF-7 cells. Royal jelly inhibits the growth promoting effect of BPA on MCF-7 cells and thus preventing women from suffering breast cancer (source: Effect of Royal Jelly on Bisphenol A – Induced Proliferation of Human Breast Cancer Cells by Nakaya M, Onda H, Sasaki K, Yukiyoshi A, Tachibana H, Yamada K, Biosci Biotechnol Biochem 2007 Jan 7).

In children with leukemia, it is effective in improving their general condition with increased appetite and weight gain.

The anti-cancer effect of royal jelly is prominent. Japanese people like to take it as a health supplement. As a result, Japan is well known for its people having the longest life span in the world.
