Masaki Kamakura of Toyama Prefectural University in Imizu, Japan, stored royal jelly at 40 °C for 30 days, feeding it to bee larvae at intervals. Its regal effect gradually weakened, suggesting the key ingredient was decaying. He then fed larvae deactivated jelly with each batch laced with a different compound that was subject to decay. Only one caused the larvae to turn into queens: a protein Kamakura calls royalactin.


Royalactin; thank goodness someone isolated this protein. I suspect this will be central to any attempts to restore the robust health of bees after our last decade of "Collapsed Hive Syndrome".

Given this knowledge, we could reestablish hives from any larvae surviving in a hive.

Would someone do me a favor and delete the post directly above ^

Thanks for posting this information. With all the terrible events in the news recently, it's encouraging to know that we might just be able to save the Honey Bees and in the process save our own butts as well....

Finally a little good news. Thanks OP. Hope this is catching!
Royal Jelly
www.pureroyaljelly.com...

Royal jelly is a thick, extremely nutritious, milky-white, creamy liquid secreted by the hypopharyngeal glands of the nurse bees. Queen bees live exclusively on royal jelly and it accounts for their incredible size and longevity. They average 42 percent larger and weigh 60 percent more than the worker bee. Amazingly, they live 40 times longer

I think the reason this person said to remove the post above is because it contributed to the thread in no way. How about giving your thoughts on this (not idiotic thoughts). I for one think that this is breakthrough.

*EDIT* : Wow! I am so clueless. I didn't even know this "royal jelly" was made by the bees themselves.

This seems like excellent news for the honeybees! Hopefully, they will find it also useful in medical applications for us human beings too. I am definitely going to follow this development.

good thread

i see it this way..gmc,pesticides,and all other manners tptb will do to kill of the bee..and theyre evolving,fighting bk....i always remember goldblume in jurassic..life wiil always find a way

How wonderful that the thing that can help them is also one of the things they themselves produce. Fantastic creatures. That royal jelly is also excellent stuff for pumping up our fertility too.

If eating the certain derivitive turns you into a queen, you can keep it.

You may be the first bee larvae to ever have said that.

Uh.... it's not the Bees evolving or fighting "bk" (really? "ac" was too much to type?) It's human scientists making new queens. Did you read the article?

If it makes you live 40 times longer, I'd have to think about it.

Maybe if they could isolate the part that makes you live 40 times longer without making you a queen you'd be interested?

Maxmars, thanks for the interesting thread. It took them a while to isolate this compound but who knows what it will lead to? However TPTB might suppress a 40x increase in lifespan. It looks like the social security system will collapse even if people live only normal lifespans, increasing it 40x will just make it that much worse, unless we raise the retirement age to 2100 years old

I wonder if I feed Royal Jelly to the ole lady, get her pregnant, feed the child a adequate dose of
RJ every meal. will it grow up to be Royalty... ??? whats the definition of Royalty>? one who is
fed royal'ly. and chocolate is the food of the gods... humm... chemically I wonder if feeding these
foods from conception on.... would create a superior human... ?

I love that it's called royal actin. That made me laugh. Anyone else?

i make it a general rule not to star or flag any moderators, but i made an exception here because this could turn out to be pretty important...nice find...

I've bathed in bath essence made up with royal jelly for last 25 years and usually have to hide it away from the family when they decide to languish instead of shower. Pleased for the bees, it wasn't till a farming friend told me just how important they are to our ecology that this little townie appreciated them and my languishing.

Thanks Maxmars. My wife just installed her first two hives a couple of weeks ago. Any info is much appreciated.

I think bee keeping should become America's favorite new hobby. I took a course in HS and it's not that difficult really.

Honey is being acclaimed by doctors now as the remedy for anti-biotic resistant "Super Bugs"...

Honey more effective than Antibiotics


Even chronic wounds infected with multi-resistant bacteria often healed within a few weeks. In conjunction with colleagues from Düsseldorf, Homburg and Berlin they now want to test the experience gained in a large-scale study, as objective data on the curative properties of honey are thin on the ground.


The ancients knew this... we are re-discovering... if the SHTF, this is valuable information to know.

I think we could already do that using fresh Royal Jelly from any thriving hive. However, how the protein works can now be studied for clues about mortality so it's fascinating nonetheless.
