Royal Jelly: Mental Clarity at Any Age

Royal jell is one of the most nutrient dense substances on the planet.  It contains virtually everything the body needs for optimal health as well as for combating diseases.  It is also highly regarded for its brain boosting capabilities and improves cognitive function and memory.

One of the key ingredients in royal jelly that may have profound implications for improving memory and invigorating mental acuity is acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a major neurotransmitter that determines brain processing speed and memory.  It encourages brain growth by stimulating neural stem cells, and glial cells1, which protect the brain’s neurons.  Glial cells make up 90 percent of the brain's cells and perform many important functions, including: digestion of parts of dead neurons, manufacturing myelin for neurons, providing physical and nutritional support for neurons, and more2.

Interestingly, royal jelly is the only natural rich source of pure acetylcholine (1 mg per gram). Optimal levels of acetylcholine in the brain are associated with improved memory, fluidity of thought, and enhanced cognitive function.  Its high concentration of phospholipids assists people dealing with impaired cognitive learning, motor function, and awareness to better short-term memory and learning processes. Studies have shown that consuming royal jelly helps people elevate to exhilarating new heights in:

  • Academic Performance
  • Career Success
  • Healthy Socialization
  • Self-Esteem
  • Personal Goals
  • Artistic Expression
  • Confidence
  • Enjoyment of Life—whether you are young or old.

An acetylcholine deficiency can result in attention deficit disorder, dementia, dry mouth, dry skin, learning disorders, speech problems, slow movement, mood swings, difficulty concentrating, carelessness, decreased creativity, verbal memory problems, memory lapses, and eventually could lead to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Royal jelly offers an incredible promise in terms of raising quality of life.  Claims have also been made that consuming royal jelly regularly helps increase intelligence over time because it provides the boost the brain needs.
