Royal jelly is a secretion product of the cephalic glands of nurse bees that has been used for centuries for its extraordinary properties and health effects. This bibliographic study aims to review many of the scientific findings and research that prove many of the remarkable various actions, effects and some uses of royal jelly. There are taken into consideration numerous biological properties and effects of royal jelly: antioxidant, neurotrophic, hipoglicemiant, hipocholesterolemiant and hepatoprotective, hypotensive and blood pressure regulatory, antitumor, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and anti-allergic, general tonic and antiaging. Royal jelly is one of the most studied bee products, but there still remains much to reveal about its biochemistry and biological activity in future research for our health and life benefit.
