CANADA.- Royal jelly and pollen used in order to fight hair loss

Hair loss in men and women is related to an individual’s genes, protein deficiency, climate, stress etc. When attempting to recover low nutrient levels, especially protein, this can be difficult as there are not many natural shampoos with absorbable protein.

However, our results show that by adding pollen and royal jelly to shampoo and cream bases, protein is absorbed into the hair at a faster rate than with other natural sources. We have visual evidence, using microscopic technology, of hair damage and losses before treatment, and the recovery using these specific bee products. Using these products in shampoo not only helps to restore strength and recovers prior damage to the hair, but helps to heal damaged skin as well.

When using only bee pollen in liquid form for hair, we encountered approximately 5% of users had an allergy. When using bee pollen and royal jelly in shampoo, with 5-10% active ingredients, reports of allergic reactions decreased, to less than one percent. This shampoo cleans the hair, while providing nutrients to rebuild and protect hair, and can be used for body.

Using n-chromosome royal jelly in shampoo is also as effective as using pollen. Using skin and face creams containing royal jelly and bee pollen appears to help with dry, cracked skin, wrinkles, and helps to provide necessary nutrients for the skin. Most skin creams on the market do not have much variety when it comes to nutrients for the skin, except for vitamins A, B, C, D and E. Human skin requires many nutrients and proteins, carbohydrates and minerals to be in good health. There is not much choice available for providing a varied protein source and nutrient source to the skin while avoiding strong preservatives like parabens or other chemicals.

*N chromosome royal jelly was been published for the first time in Apimondia 2011. N chromosome royal jelly is a combination of worker jelly and royal jelly produced from grafted half chromosome larva.
