Royal jelly - causing me to gain weight?

by Laurel
(Illinois)

I had been taking RJ by soft gel just over a month and now suck it out of the casing to avoid ingesting the soft gel. Question: I seem to be gaining WEIGHT now?????? Would there be a correlation between having RJ daily? I'm finding myself wanting to eat when I'm not hungry!?!? I'm preferring more salt too. Once daily, I'm taking 1000mg, 6% 10HDA. Thank you!!

Hi Laurel,
I'd be very surprised if royal jelly is causing you to gain weight or to eat more. What I would suggest is to stop taking the royal jelly for a week or two and see if you continue to experience this issue.

Royal jelly has actually been shown to balance blood sugar and aid in weight loss so it is unlikely that it is causing the opposite for you.

Let me know how things go.

Angela

Royal Jelly
by: Kelly

I took RJ in Italy and it came in a tiny bottle with a tiny spoon half the size of your little finger nail. You put this little spoon full under your tongue first thing in the morning. Here in Australia they tell you to take half a teaspoon which I have been doing under the tongue and I have developed a HUGE GUT!!!! I thought maybe it wasn't as pure so you had to take more but I think it is pure and half a teaspoon is far too much.
This is taking it in the pure cream form, not capsules.
Could I be right about this?

Weight Loss
by: Anonymous

I have been taking Royal Jelly as a combo pill with propolis and bee pollen for the last month. I have more energy and I have lost 4 pounds this month. I did have to cut back on the dose the bottle said as It caused kidney pain. When I cut back I was fine.

Well, I have only been on the jelly for about 4 days now. I do feel like have put on some pounds in some unwanted places. I am not sure if it is due to the royal jelly or what. i will start working out again to see if that would help.

Weight Gaine & Increased Estrogen
by: Anonymous

I started to take Royal Jelly at the recommendation of my acupuncturist to help with fertility and energy. Yes, it did increase my energy, but it also added 6lbs and upped my estrogen levels. When I did my initial research, I did not see anything regarding either of those two as possible side effects. Now that I know to look specifically for that, I see where people take royal jelly to help put on weight AND that it has caused other women's estrogen levels to rise. I was preparing to start another round of Gonal-F with an IUI and had to postpone because of my raised estrogen levels. Since I have Hashimoto's Hypothyroid, it will not be easy to loose these 6lbs.

weight gain
by: Anonymous

I have also been taking royal jelly for a little over two months, and I think it has caused weight gain for me as well. I truly believe that it has increased my breast size, and I'm definitely not complaining about that. But I also have gotten a small "gut" that I'm not used to, and the only thing that I have done differently is added the royal jelly to my diet. The main reason why I began taking royal jelly in the first place was due to having a high FSH level. This impacts a women's ability to get pregnant and maintain a pregnancy. Before taking royal jelly, my FSH level was 16.5 and after 2 months it dropped to an astonishing 5.4!! So, despite the weight gain in my stomach, I'm still really happy with it because I believe that it will help me conceive. Fingers crossed!
