What does each capsule of E_ROY contain?
Royal jelly 1000 mg
What is Royal jelly?
known as gelee royale and RJ, is the milky-white gelatinous substance secreted from the cephalic glands of nurse worker bees (Apis mellifera) for apparently the sole purpose of stimulating the growth and development of the queen bee. Without royal jelly, the queen bee would be no different from the worker bees and would live about as long (seven to eight weeks). With royal jelly, the queen bee can live five to seven years. This fact explains the popular belief that royal jelly has rejuvenating qualities.
Royal jelly consists of an emulsion of proteins, sugars, lipids and some other substances in a water base. Proteins make up about 13% of royal jelly. Most of the proteins comprise a family called major royal jelly proteins. One protein in royal jelly called royalsin possesses antibiotic properties against gram-positive, but not gram-negative, bacteria. About 11% of royal jelly is made up of sugars, such as fructose and glucose, similar to those found in honey. Lipids comprise about 5% of the substance and consist mainly of medium-chain hydroxy fatty acids, such as trans-10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid, which is also thought to possess antimicrobial properties.
Royal jelly also contains vitamins, such as pantothenic acid, minerals and phytosterols. Neopterin, or 2-amino-6- (1,2,3-trihydroxypropyl)-4 (3H)-pteridinone, was initially isolated from royal jelly. Neopterin is also found in humans, and, although its precise role is not known, it appears to play an important role in the human immune system.
Melbrosia, a mixture of royal jelly and bee pollen, is sometimes used by menopausal women to manage climacteric symptoms.

Why should I use Royal jelly?
Hypolipidemic, Antibacterial ,Anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activities. Enhanced immune function, Wound-healing properties and that it shortened healing time in desquamated skin lesions and anti-cancer effects.

How do I use Royal jelly?
Although a recommended daily allowance for royal jelly has yet to be established, many alternative health practitioners recommend 50-100mg per day.

Wheat Germ Oil 500 mg
Where to find Wheat Germ Oil?
wheatWheat germ is the embryo (the little baby wheat plant) of the wheat kernel. Small amounts of a fatty liquid — wheat germ oil — are naturally present in wheat germ. Octacosanol is one of a number of long-chain fatty, waxy alcohols found in wheat germ oil.
Wheat germ oil is among the richest sources of octacosanol, though octacosanol can also be found in sugar cane and in certain whole grains, nuts, and vegetable oils.
Policosanol, a natural product developed in recent years, is a blend of concentrated waxy alcohols, including octacosanol as well as a half dozen or more others, such as triacontanol and hexacosanol, which are typically extracted from sugar cane wax or beeswax.
Wheat germ may be eaten as a cereal or used when baking breads, muffins, and the like to provide additional nutrients. Supplement companies also offer a wheat germ extract powder or wheat germ concentrate.

Why athletes use Wheat Germ Oil?
Wheat germ oil can be a valuable natural source of Vitamin E. Octacosanol and (more dramatically) policosanol can be beneficial natural agents for optimizing cardiovascular function, particularly if blood cholesterol balance is a potential concern.
Ways that Wheat Germ Oil can enhance Muscle Gain & Recovery:
• Help the blood flow more easily through the body
Ways that Wheat Germ Oil can enhance Energy & Endurance:
• Potentially help improve reaction time

What are the potential uses for Wheat Germ Oil?
Research indicates that Wheat Germ Oil may be useful in the treatment of:
Skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis
Burns
Skin ulcers Dry skin Herpes Cardiovascular disease Poor circulation
Intermittent claudication

What are the therapeutic uses of Wheat Germ Oil?
dozens of studies on policosanol that suggest it is similar to the statin drugs in its ability to reduce blood levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol. To a lesser extent, policosanol may also raise levels of "good" HDL cholesterol and reduce blood platelet stickiness, both of which can also benefit heart health.
Safety of Wheat Germ Oil
You would be hard pressed to take enough of this supplement to really hurt yourself. Wheat germ oil, octacosanol, policosanol are considered safe and nontoxic at recommended levels. Pregnant or nursing women should consult with their physicians before using policosanol, however.

Drugs that interact with Wheat Germ Oil
Octacosanol may interfere with the action of the Parkinson's drug levodopa. Policosanol may thin the blood slightly and thus should be used with caution by people with potential bleeding disorders and by those taking blood-thinning drugs, such as aspirin and warfarin (Coumadin).

Vitamin A 2500 mg (beta cart)
carrotWhat is the importance of vitamin A?
Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin, plays essential roles in vision, growth, and development; the development and maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and mucous membranes; immune functions; and reproduction.

How much do you need?
Vitamin A is also called retinol. Measurement of the amount of vitamin A is taken in retinol activity equivalents (RAE). Carotene, an orange pigment found in food, is split by the body to become two active units of vitamin A. This is also important when calculating the amount of vitamin A in the body.
The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamin A is 700 RAE per day for women and 900 RAE per day for men. The U.S. RDA given is for adults and changes for women who are pregnant or lactating; therefore, please consult your healthcare provider for differences.

Garlic 100 mg
Therapeutic Uses:
garlicSustaining cardiovascular health. Reduction of serum lipid (cholesterol and triglyceride) levels, inhibition of platelet aggregation, and reduction of elevated blood pressure are effects that may contribute to the reputed anti-atherosclerotic activity. Traditional use as an oral or topical antimicrobial/anti-infective agent. The efficacy of garlic as a vampirifuge has never been confirmed in placebo-controlled study.

Adverse Reactions/Precautions:
Garlic has a long history of culinary and medicinal use. It is classified as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) including during pregnancy and lactation and in children, when ingested in amounts commonly found in foods.

Drug Interactions:
In addition to inhibiting platelet aggregation, garlic (especially when taken on a continuous basis) may reduce blood glucose levels and lower blood pressure (usually <15mm Hg). These activities may add to the effects of antiplatelet/anticoagulant, hypoglycemic and antihypertensive medications.

Clinical Pharmacology:
Although not all clinical studies have been well controlled, there is a substantial body of evidence indicating that daily consumption of adequate doses of garlic (see above) may result in modest (6-12%) reductions in total serum cholesterol and LDL with slight elevation in HDL. Whether the antilipemic effect of garlic is additive with that of standard hypocholesterolemic agents (statins) has not been determined. Similarly, regular consumption of garlic has been found to produce slight reductions in systolic and/or diastolic arterial pressure in hypertensive patients. Several constituents in garlic (methyallytrisulfide, ajoene) inhibit platelet function in thrombogenesis.
