Royal jelly and Diabetes

Royal jelly and Diabetes

Worker bees secrete royal jelly, which is rich in major nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. In this study, 46 men and women with type 2 diabetes for five to 10 years took a placebo or 1,000 mg of royal jelly three times per day.

After eight weeks, those in the royal jelly group saw a 25 percent decrease in a measure of insulin resistance, HOMA-IR, while insulin resistance increased 21.7 percent for placebo. HOMA-IR measures the function of specialized cells in the pancreas that produce insulin, and gauges insulin resistance-when muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond normally to insulin, and absorb less glucose from the bloodstream.

Type 2 diabetes also has a link to oxidative stress, and total antioxidant capacity increased 5.7 percent for those taking royal jelly while decreasing 3.6 percent for placebo.
