Studying the Cancer-Fighting Effects of Royal Jelly
According to a study published in a 2009 edition of the BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, royal jelly fights cancer by suppressing the blood supply to tumors. Also, according to a study published in the December 2010 edition of PLoS One, since the fatty components of the jelly contain estrogenic effects, it is possible that it can treat breast and cervical cancer.
There are studies regarding royal jelly in treating leukemia. Several clinical tests have shown that it reduces the harmful effects of cisplatin (chemotherapy drug) on the kidneys and liver. Also, some of the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments such as “chemo skin” and other serious skin irritations can be repaired by royal jelly supplements.
This wondrous jelly lessens the effect of lipid peroxidation (degradation of necessary fats in the blood due to free radicals). It also enhances the antioxidants superoxide and glutathione and is rich in nucleic acids, RNA, and DNA.
