It has been reported that royal jelly has many health benefits for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and lipid-lowering activities. A study investigated the hypolipidemic beneficial effect of royal jelly through evaluating anthropometric measurements, lipid profile, and various hormone levels in mildly hypercholesterolemic participants.
The results demonstrated that intervention with royal jelly for three months considerably lowered the total cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins through enhancing the levels of the concentration of sex hormones like dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) and thus mitigates the risk of cardiovascular disease.
