Royal Jelly Lowers Blood Pressure
A group of researchers in Japan investigated the effect of certain peptides found in Royal Jelly on rats with elevated blood pressure.

Giving the rats only a single dose of RJ orally, the researchers found that systolic blood pressure was reduced by just this one dose for eight hours.

They concluded that the intake of RJ peptides, as a functional food would be beneficial for improving blood pressure in people with hypertension.

Of the dozens and dozen of royal jelly health benefits, this particular benefit could potentially save our health care system the most money. Hypertension drugs are among the most prescribed drugs in the world. Unfortunately, they have tremendous side effects.

Royal Jelly Extends Life Span?
Emerging research is really beginning to point to Royal Jelly as a life-extending nutrient.  Up until now, only calorie restriction and possibly resveratrol (the compound in wine) have been shown to absolutely extend life span in multiple species, including humans.   

Researchers at the Fujisaki Institute in Okayama Japan recently set out to investigate the effect of Royal Jelly on the life span of mice.  They did this by measuring the levels of DNA oxidative damage that occurred in the animals over 16 weeks of feeding them either royal jelly or nothing.  

Generally, the greater the amount of oxidative stress in your body the faster you'll age.   Ingesting anti-oxidants is one one to combat oxidative damage.   

In the mice that were fed a dietary supplement of Royal Jelly for 16 weeks, the levels of 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine, a marker of oxidative stress, were significantly reduced.  This is a very good sign and is indicative of royal jelly's anti-oxidant properties. 

The researches then determined the effect of dietary RJ on the life span of these mice - overall Royal Jelly extended the average survival time by about 25% compared to the control group.

The researchers suggested that this life extending effect was likely caused by the anti-oxidant effect of Royal Jelly.
