Royal Jelly is the gelatinous substance secreted by the glands of worker bees and fed to the queen bee to stimulate her growth and development. Royal jelly is rich in protein, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C, E, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, inositol and folic acid. Royal Jelly can be taken as a supplement or used as a topical hair conditioner.
Hair that is subjected to the abuse of harsh chemicals and styling tools will require more nutrients. A royal jelly conditioner rich in vitamins and minerals can provide the hair with hydration, eliminating dryness and opening the hair follicles to allow for absorption of its many nutrients 2. The proteins and amino acids rejuvenate the scalp and aid in the repair of damaged hair. Royal jelly can also be applied directly to the scalp and hair.

Deficiencies in these three vitamins have been known to cause hair loss. Royal jelly in rich in all three, helping not only to grow hair but to prevent you from losing what you do have.
