What summer, rabbits, and bees have to do with male libido

Most people over the age of 50 aren't terribly interested in having children. However, they typically are interested in maintaining a healthy, intimate relationship with their spouse. And I just found a study on summertime, rabbits, and bees that can help men stay potent throughout their life.

I know, the connection between all of these seems a bit farfetched. But it definitely makes for a story that all men will find quite interesting. What's more, the findings have implications for a woman's libido as well.

Back in 2010, researchers from Alexandria University in Alexandria, Egypt looked at the summer infertility of male rabbits. Personally, I had no idea male rabbits were infertile in the summer. Apparently, the heat causes enough stress that it reduces their fertility. This makes sense, as researchers know that higher temperatures can affect the viability of men as well.

To treat the summer infertility, the researchers gave the male rabbits a daily dose of royal jelly. Royal jelly, as you may know, is a honey bee secretion that the bees use to feed the queen and larvae in their hive. We know that royal jelly has incredible health benefits. Studies have shown it can fight cancer, bacterial infections, and diabetes. It even helps regulate blood pressure.

When the researchers gave the daily dose of royal jelly to the bucks, it increased their testosterone levels and sperm count. Both of these are obvious signs of a higher libido and potency. What's more, the royal jelly decreased the amount of unhealthy or dead sperm. This is important because research has shown that unhealthy sperm can lead to birth defects, childhood cancer, and miscarriages. Unhealthy sperm also is common when libido is low. The two often go together, probably because of testosterone levels.

So if you're looking to increase your libido, or just keep it at healthy levels, royal jelly might be all you need. And, yes, studies suggest it works for women too. I would certainly recommend starting with royal jelly before turning to prescription drugs. Plus, the cost is next to nothing and there are no side effects (unless you're allergic to it). You can find organic royal jelly at any health food store or online for about $12 for a one-month supply.
