I have found a lot of information on all the other products of the hive and their benefits. However, I have not come across much on Royal Jelly. Does anyone know of any beneficial properties it has when ingested or as a topical treatment in Apitherapy? Anything?

This is from:

Common associated benefits of royal jelly include:

More energy.
Healthier skin and hair, more youthful appearance.
Strengthened immune system, more resilience to colds/flu and other illnesses that attack the immune system.
Reduced feelings of stress or reaction to stress.
Royal jelly appears to have anti-tumor properties. *

* A team of Japanese researchers gave royal jelly to one of two groups of laboratory mice before transplanting different types of cancer cells in them. The royal jelly had dramatic effects on sarcoma cells. The life-span of the mice was extended by about one-fifth and tumor sizes were about half the size, compared with untreated mice, according to a report in the journal Nippon Yakurigaku Zasshji-Folia Pharmacologica Japonica (Feb. 1987;89:73-80).

The Vitamin Content of Royal Jelly :

Vitamin BI (Thiamine) 1.5 to 7.4 mcg.
