Researchers from the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at the Medical Faculty of Erciyes University in Turkey investigated whether royal jelly and bee pollen reduce the bone loss due to osteoporosis in oophorectomized rat model and found significant results.
Royal jelly enhances migration of human dermal fibroblasts and alters the levels of cholesterol and sphinganine in an in vitro wound healing model
In this study, researchers investigate if Royal Jelly treatment accelerates the migration of dermal fibroblasts, one of the major cells involved in granular tissue formation during wound healing. Furthermore, we determine whether Royal Jelly treatment alters the levels of lipids in fibroblast; such alterations have recently been reported to aid in wound closure.
Royal jelly (RJ) has been reported to possess several physiological and pharmacological properties such as the ability to prevent osteoporosis in rats and anti-inflammatory effects. We hypothesized that RJ could have beneficial effects on the prevention or treatment of periodontal diseases, which are chronic inflammatory diseases caused by bacterial infection that result in resorption of the tooth-supporting bone.
A female honeybee (Apis mellifera) will either become a worker or a queen depending on whether she is fed royal jelly in the larvae stage. Royal jelly has long been known for its nutritional value, but the specific mechanism that induces this differentiation has remained unknown.
