Fresh vs. Freeze-Dried Royal Jelly

Why Non Freeze-Dried?
BeeAlive Royal Jelly products are the highest quality, most potent on the market because they contain only fresh, never freeze-dried Royal Jelly. Many companies freeze-dry Royal Jelly, or expose it to dry, freezing air, because it is convenient and inexpensive, but scientific research has shown freeze-drying Royal Jelly to a powder removes not only its moisture content but its nutritional benefits, as well. Benefits of nature’s precious substance have been observed in studies using only fresh, non freeze-dried Royal Jelly. We strive to preserve Royal Jelly's complete nutritional and superfood goodness.

Because we use only fresh Royal Jelly in all of our products, we must handle nature’s delicate substance with great care. If Royal Jelly is not harvested, transported, stored and manufactured under the proper conditions, it will degrade rapidly.

Royal Jelly is measured by its amount of 10-HDA (10-Hydroxy-2-Decenoic Acid), a powerful fatty acid which promotes Royal Jelly’s many health benefits. Royal Jelly found in the hive contains 2% 10-HDA, which is the concentration found in our Royal Jelly. In its freeze-dried, processed, “unnatural” state, the content of 10-HDA found in Royal Jelly is generally between 4 and 6%. A higher 10-HDA does not indicate that freeze-dried Royal Jelly is superior to fresh Royal Jelly; only that its natural moisture has been removed. In fact, a study measuring the stability of fresh Royal Jelly compared to freeze-dried found that freeze-dried Royal Jelly was more prone to degradation over time than its fresh counterpart.

BeeAlive fresh Royal Jelly is as close to nature as you can get!

All About BeeAlive Royal Jelly

About BeeAlive Royal Jelly
BeeAlive has been working in partnership with nature’s bees since 1984. For the last three decades, this family-owned and operated business, passed down from founder Madeline Balletta to her son, Jason, and his wife, Rose, has paved its way as the leading provider of pure, never freeze-dried Royal Jelly, the food of the Queen Bee, and other natural wellness products. In the same way that bees utilize the pollen of plants to sustain the abundance of nature, we pride ourselves on providing top quality products that allow individuals to help their bodies help themselves. As part of a culture that emphasizes the importance of nourishing the inner body with vitamins and nutrients in nature’s whole form, we believe that we should treat our skin, the largest organ of the body, with the same respect. BeeAlive Spa Essentials™ natural skin care is the perfect complement to BeeAlive’s holistic approach. And because we are always staying on top of new developments in natural ingredients and Royal Jelly, you can be confident our products are ones everyone will be buzzing about.

BeeAlive respects what nature has created.
BeeAlive products contain only fresh, never freeze-dried Royal Jelly to preserve its complete nutrition and superfood goodness. Many companies freeze-dry Royal Jelly because it is convenient and inexpensive, but scientific research has shown freeze-drying causes Royal Jelly to lose many nutritional benefits. Benefits of nature’s precious substance have been observed in studies using only fresh, non freeze-dried Royal Jelly.

BeeAlive Royal Jelly is as close to nature as possible.
BeeAlive Royal Jelly is harvested from the finest hand-selected hives in Chiang Mai, Thailand, one of the best places on Earth from which to harvest precious Royal Jelly. Expert beekeepers treat bees with the same respect nature does. Every batch of Royal Jelly that goes into our products is tested by independent, third party laboratories. This ensures the precious nature of Royal Jelly remains pure and wholesome without additives – just as it is straight from the hive, the way nature intended.

What Is Royal Jelly?
Royal Jelly is a rare and nutritious substance from the beehive, found only in nature and unable to be duplicated in a lab. It is not honey or pollen, but the food of the Queen Bee. All bees in the hive are born genetically identical, but one is chosen as the Queen. The Queen Bee, fed her exclusive Royal Jelly diet, grows very large, lays about 2,000 eggs a day and lives approximately two to three years, while other bees, who eat only honey and pollen, live only two to three weeks. The only difference is their diet!

Royal Jelly’s benefits are not limited to our buzzing friends. At BeeAlive we’ve only known about Royal Jelly since 1984, but individuals in different parts of Europe, Africa and Asia have been using it internally and on the skin for centuries, experiencing a powerful host of health and beauty benefits, due to the superfood’s wide array of nutrients, antioxidants and naturally occurring bioactive compounds, including B vitamins, proteins and other biochemical cofactors, amino acids, peptides, fatty acids, Acetylcholine, Royalactin and 10-HDA, a compound unique to Royal Jelly.
