Royal Jelly increases the lifespan of unhealthy mice.
Royal Jelly is the only food for the developing queen bee because it is so nutritious. Research indicates it has anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. Royal Jelly is a super-food rich in nutrients; vitamins, minerals, proteins and fatty acids. Royal Jelly is well known for its ability to fight fatigue.
In this study Japanese researchers chose a strain of mouse prone to illness and infection who commonly suffer at an early age from illnesses usually seen in the elderly. The scientists fed them Royal Jelly for 16 weeks. The first obvious advantage to Royal Jelly was free radical damage metabolites normally detected in the blood of the animals dropped significantly. The animals fed intermediate and large servings of Royal Jelly lived 25 % longer than non-supplemented animals. The study is published in the September 2003 issue of the journal Experimental Gerontology.
Chlorella may be very healthy for the eye and may delay the development of cataracts.
Chlorella is a simple plant that grows in fresh water. Chlorella is regarded as a super-food because it is packed with nutrients. Compared to other vegetables Chlorella has a very powerful antioxidant effect. In this study Chlorella was fed to rats for 11 weeks and all rats had diabetes. Chlorella by the 11th week had considerably lowered the level of cholesterol and glycated hemoglobin. Chlorella decreased the level of lipid peroxides in the animals' blood. Chlorella supplementation also reduced inflammatory activity and damage in both the liver and kidneys of these diabetic animals. Chlorella delayed the development of cataracts and decreased the level of lipid peroxides in the eye lens.
The study was published in the October 2003 issue of the Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology.
