Royal jelly for my pets skin issues?
by Debbie M.
My dog has some skin issues and I read that royal jelly would be good to give her. What product would be the best? Do you have any suggestions as to what other products might help her.
I have advised many of our customers on using both royal jelly and bee pollen with their pets. What we find works best is our Powdered Concentrate 3X. It is very easy to mix into their food and doesn't require being frozen so it is much easier to work with. I would also suggest giving your dog some pure fish oil or flax oil in his/her food each day with their royal jelly. I find this combo works very well for most skin issues. You may also want to consider supplementing with bee pollen as well as it is loaded with minerals and protein, both of which are vital for optimum skin health. I've listed a recent study on skin healing below for your reference.

Scientists at the Department of Pharmacology, Nihon University in Japan set out to discover whether or not Royal Jelly can augment wound healing.
They fed rats various amounts of RJ daily and found that it showed anti-inflammatory activity by decreasing exudation and collagen formation. RJ also shortened the healing period of skin lesions, enough so that the scientists stated that RJ is able to augment wound healing.
This comes as no surprise to those of us who have used royal jelly for skin health over the years. Royal Jelly contains specific nutrients and vitamins that support skin renewal such as flavonoids, nucleic acid, decanoic acid, enzymes, and hormones.
It also contains numerous vitamins and minerals such as vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, acetyl-choline and zinc, all of which are excellent for the skin. Studies indicate that the acids found in Royal Jelly contribute to its collagen production and promotion.
Take three 500 mg capsules daily or one quarter teaspoon of fresh royal jelly powder per day to optimize your skin health.
