Chapter 1 - Djed is a natural organic Superfood
Bee Pollen, Kakadu Plum, Lilli Pilli, Acacia Seeds, Wheatgrass Sprouts, Plum, Lime, Peppermint, Royal Jelly and Propolis.
Each composition has been selected and evolved into difficult, arid and extreme biotopes, which give them high quality active ingredients (resistance of the plant and its compounds). The adaptogenic quality of each of these plants helps to strengthen the organic functions of convalescent and weakened people. Djed gives energy, maintains energy during sports activities, helps fight stress, depression and anxiety; supports the immune system.
Djed is an excellent dietary supplement containing a large amount of naturally sourced Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) that is highly assimilable for the function of mitochondria.
The plants that make up Djed have growing conditions in difficult natural environments, which develop a significant amount of ATP in the function of their eukaryotes to withstand extreme weather. Without ATP, these plants would not be able to survive and adapt.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a molecule that is normally synthesized in cells. It is the energy source of the cell that is the final product obtained during photophosphorylation (adding a phosphate group to a molecule using the energy of light). All living things need ATP. This energy source is needed to produce bioelectricity, the vital energy for intra/extra cellular osmosis. It is fundamental for deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and Ribonucleic acid (RNA) and messenger RNA (telomeres).
ATP is used by many cellular components as an energy source. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) provides the energy needed for chemical reactions to metabolism, locomotion, cell division, or the elimination of free radicals through cell membranes.
The manufacture of Djed is carried out by a process of slow freeze-drying (lyophilization), at low temperature, in order to preserve the properties, the active principles, so that they are assimilated.
Chapter 2- Properties of the five first superfood Djed components (full of ATP)
Bee Pollen, Kakadu Plum, Lilli Pilli, Acacia Seeds, Wheatgrass Sprouts:
Bee Pollen: The pollen contained in the Djed is obtained by bees operating in a difficult climate, on the edge between desert and steppes.
Pollen undergoes a transformation by bees adding their saliva. Through this process, they add nutrients and enzymes: vitamins, trace elements, antioxidants, up to 27 amino acids, lactoferments, polyphenols, proteins, glucose and fiber. This is one of the best superfoods.
Kakadu Plum: rich in antioxidants vitamin C (one of the best source of vitamin C, superior to blueberries and 50 times more concentrated than orange). Antioxidant properties up to 7 times higher than curcumin.
Reminder: An antioxidant is a molecule that slows down or prevents the oxidation of other chemicals when they come into contact.
Oxidation is part of an oxydorination reaction: it can produce toxic free radicals at the intra-cellular and mitochondrial level. Good biological quality antioxidants help to combat these free radicals and their effects in the irreversible mechanism of apoptosis and telomerase function.
Wattle Seed: contains many minerals and beneficial nutrients, concentrated in protein and unsaturated fats.
Wheat Grass Sprouts: contains a remarkable content of chlorophyll up to 70% which is rich in vegetable magnesium. Shoots of wheatgrass contain vitamins A, B, B1, B5, E and K, minerals, proteins, fibers and trace elements (iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium).
Benefits of wheatgrass shoots in general:
Chapter 3 - Properties of three second superfood Djed components
Plum, Lime, Peppermint,
Plum: rich in antioxidant polyphenols, very remineralizing and complete. A super food concentrated in nutrients: iron, magnesium, fibre, potassium, calcium, provitamin A, vitamin E, group B vitamins and antioxidants.
Polyphenols appear to play an important role in both protection against cell degeneration and cardiovascular disease. The protective action against cancer could be explained by a mechanism quite similar to that of prebiotics by their ability to improve the function of the intestinal microbiota, especially for anarchic degenerations of the digestive system (stomach, colon, etc.).
Lime: contains antioxidant flavonoids.
Some plants develop a phenolic metabolism, especially that of flavonoids, it is an important part of the plant strategy to fight biotic and abiotic stresses (exposure to UV or cold, injury, nutritional deficiency, defense of plants against herbivores and pathogens ...).
The production of these flavonoids in a difficult biotope results in superior organoleptic quality.
Some flavonoids are of great interest in the health field: for their antibacterial, antiviral, anti-platelet, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-cancer and antioxidant activities.
Spearmint: rich in antioxidants, tannins, flavonoids (18%) and vitamin C; contains a large amount of minerals: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium.
Chapter 4- Properties of the ninth superfood Djed component
Royal Jelly: it is the secretion product of the cephalic glandular system (hypopharyngeal glands and mandibular glands) of worker bees. Royal jelly is the food of all larvae in the colony during hatching until the third day of their existence and the larvae chosen to become queen until the fifth day and to the queen herself throughout her life.
It contains all the essential amino acids, the most important being aspartic acid and glutamic acid. It also contains enzymes such as glucose oxidase, phosphatase and cholineserase. The most important minerals in royal jelly are: calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, silicon and sodium.
Royal jelly is a cocktail of life, designed to feed the larvae of the colony and the queen. Royal jelly contains lipids, including 80-85% fatty acids, 4-10% phenols, 3 to 4% steroids, 0.4 to 0.08% phospholipids, acetylcholine, 10-HDA and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).
1. Benefits for the immune system: due to its complex composition (vitamins, amino acids, minerals, trace elements, essential fatty acids and lipids). Royal jelly is considered a superfood that acts as a preventive measure to strengthen the immune system. Among the many active substances present, the main elements for strengthening the immune system are:
1.1. Gamma globulin: helps fight viruses and infections.
1.2. Royalisin: helps strengthen the immune system to fight bacteria, heal wounds and fight allergies.
1.3. 10-hydroxy-2-decantic acid (10-2-HDA): the main modulator of the immune system, having a direct effect on lymphoblastoid cells (essential in the body's defense process).
2. Benefits for the nervous system: The nervous system coordinates muscles, monitors organs, receives and processes information received by the senses and initiates actions. In other words, the nervous system is responsible for homeostasis (the balance of the body).
2.1 Acetylcholine in the composition of royal jelly is one of the most important neurotransmitters in the human body. It plays a major role in the physiological processes of memory by transmitting messages from one nerve cell to another. As a major source of acetylcholine, royal jelly provides optimal flexibility for the brain to adapt and respond to new situations without experiencing stress. The absence of stress facilitates memorization.
2.2 An intellectual stimulant: the presence of certain trace elements (phosphorus, magnesium), certain vitamins (vitamins B1, B2, B6), and amino acids (tryptophan) has proven very useful for improving mental state, treating anorexia and depression, increasing intellectual performance and improving memory. Especially as a dietary supplement during exam periods.
2.3 Pure and constantly quantity royal jelly is recommended for cardiovascular problems, helps regulate blood pressure, soothes and calms in the case of hyperactive person (child or adult) or as an adjuvant treatment for neuro-psychiatric diseases (Parkinson, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis or certain forms of dementia), against anemia.
3. Benefits on the respiratory system:
3.1 Commonly used to treat most respiratory diseases, from mild bronchitis to persistent respiratory problems. Thanks to the antibiotic properties of decanoque acid-10-hydroxy-2-decanoque which helps fight bacterial infections.
3.2 Natural remedy for asthma: paroxysmal dyspnea disorder characterized by an expiratory type and usually followed by mucous sputum, used pure mainly for its calming effect on the bronchial lining, anti-stress and stimulant of the immune system, useful for relieving associated allergies.
4. Benefits on the digestive system: The digestive system is the group of organs that digest and absorb ingested food and drain residues. It includes the digestive tract (the oral cavity, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine) and adjacent glands (salivary glands, liver, pancreas). Used as a dietary supplement, pure royal jelly has the ability to regulate the activity of the digestive tract in order to limit irritation and the presence of pathogenic bacteria in the gastric and intestinal lining.
4.1 Healing effect in the case of gastroenteritis. 10-hydroxy-2-decanoic acid, which naturally exists only in royal jelly, can eliminate the most potent bacteria associated with gastroenteritis. This acid has a broader bactericidal action to fight inflammation of the mucous membranes.
4.2 Helps in the future and improve the duodenal ulcer. Royal jelly is the most natural source of vitamin B5, which helps prevent damage to the duodenum and acts as protection. If the ulcer is stress-induced, royal jelly acts mainly as a natural sedative because of its phosphorus content. The glutamic acid it contains will help soothe irritation.
4.3 Natural treatment of hepatitis with apitherapy. In medical facilities where apitherapy is practiced, royal jelly is a standard treatment for any type of liver disorder but in particular hepatitis.
5. Benefits on the osteo-articular system: it is a complex of living and solid structures connected by specific joints and tissues that provide a framework for our body. It includes bones (skull, spine, ribs, sternum, shoulder bones, arms, etc.), cartilage, joints and ligaments. The foundation of the architecture of the human body.
5.1 Relieves arthritis symptoms: A recognized British study, conducted in 1960 by Barton-Wright and W.A. Elliott, Chief Medical Officer at the St. Alfege Rheumatology Clinic in London, analyzed the evolution of a group of arthritis patients treated with pure royal jelly and achieved impressive results. Scientists have discovered that arthritis patients have difficulty retaining pantothenic acid in the body. So, they looked for a solution and decided to make injections of royal jelly, because this natural substance is a real source of pantothenic acid. Daily injections were subsequently replaced with oral treatment for the well-being of patients, and this change was just as effective. This study concludes with the general observation that with a vegetarian diet and daily treatment with pure royal jelly, the symptoms of arthritis can almost completely disappear.
5.2 Relieves joint mobility and reduces pain.
5.3 Results for rheumatoid arthritis: In a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2010, several researchers found that 10-hydroxy-2-decanoic acid (10-2-HDA), an important component found in royal jelly, blocked the pro-inflammatory signaling pathway. The results of the study show that one of the main advantages of pure royal jelly is its ability to stop the signal of the human body mistakenly emitted in the case of autoimmune diseases and responsible for the creation of inflammations. It is a natural and necessary response to healing when the body is injured. In diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, there is no damage to be repaired, so no excessive inflammation is necessary. During this process, the body takes its own tissues and, over time, destroys its joints. Preventing this immune system reaction is essential and royal jelly plays an important role in maintaining optimal immunity.
5.4 Relieves back pain, sciatica, lombosciatica and hernia: royal jelly acts simultaneously in different directions, oxygenation of the blood, acceleration of healing of the affected muscles or ligaments, relaxation of tense muscles and reduction of stress.
5.5 Osteoporosis prevention: Royal jelly naturally amplifies the body's ability to absorb calcium, store it in bones and solve the problem of wear and tear.
6. Benefits on the reproductive system:
6.1 Helps restore hormonal balance in women and men, it is a good regulator of ovarian hormones and pituitary gland. May be recommended in hypothalamic women and men, because of its ability to normalize the function of the adrenal glands responsible for the production of androgens and the positive effects it brings on the testicles, responsible for testosterone. Royal jelly stimulates ovulation, fertilization and sexual performance of women and men.
6.2 Royal jelly is completely natural and does not contain artificial hormones. It helps to overcome fertility problems by stimulating the secretion of the essential hormones involved in reproduction and ensuring the proper functioning of the body.
6.3 Relieves menstrual or menopausal disorders. It can be recommended during breastfeeding and during pregnancy, it stimulates milk production.
7. Benefits on the skin system:
7.1 Contains many nutrients to facilitate the regeneration process of skin, hair and nails: flavonoids, nucleic acids, decanoic acids, enzymes and hormones, as well as vitamins and minerals such as vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, acetylcholine and zinc. The acids in royal jelly contribute to collagen production. Due to the presence of amino acids in its composition, royal jelly prevents and fights hair loss, as well as thanks to its calming, relaxing effect.
7.2 Remedy against psoriasis, eczema, acne and herpes: healing and stimulating effect of the immune system.
Chapter 5 - Properties of the last superfood Djed component
Propolis: it is a resinous substance made by bees from their secretions and propolis harvested from buds. This plant propolis is a real barrier for the plant against pathogens that can infect buds. The bees collect it to bring it back to the hive and use it to protect the colony from microbial diseases.
Propolis has anti-infective and immunostimulant properties, particularly effective in winter, in support of the ENT (Ear Nose Throat) and pulmonary sphere but also against skin conditions.
Propolis is composed of about 300 compounds including:
resins and balms: 50-55%
essential oils: 5-10%
mineral and organic materials: 5%
Its active ingredients include:
organic acids: benzoic acid, gallic acid
phenolic acids: cyonic acid, cinnamic acid, febolic acid, isoferolic acid, p-coumarinic, artepilline C
aromatic adehydes: vanillin, isovanillin
flavonoids: chrysine, pinocembrine, galangine, quercetin, acacertin, pectolinarigein, tectochrysin, izalpinine, kaempferin, rhamnocitrine, pinotrobine, sarkyrane, pinobanksin
vitamins: provitamin A, vitamin B3 (or PP) and other B vitamins
Depending on the plants used by the bees but also the geographical origin, the composition will be somewhat variable. Propolis from temperate zones will be richer in polyphenolic compounds, i.e., flavonoids, phenolic acids and their esters sesquiterpenes. Propolis from intertropical areas will be richer in prenyled derivatives (artepilline C), coumaric acids and flavonoids.
Chapter 6 - Summarize of Properties of superfood Djed
Immunostimulant: The phenethylester of cyonic acid promotes the stimulation of the immune system by increasing the production of antibodies and lymphocytes.
Antimicrobial: Flavonoids, galangine, pinocembrine, benzoic, conic acid and their esters give propolis antibacterial and antifungal properties (positive and acid-resistant gram bacillus and gram-positive coccis are the most sensitive). It is thus effective in combating pharyngitis, pneumonia, bronchitis, colds and asthma. Active antibiotic on multidr disgusting staph, streptococcus, Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme disease), etc. Propionibacterium acnes. Active antifungal on Candida albicans and Aspergillus trichophyton. Propolis helps fight wart and fungus infections.
Antiviral: Flavonoids are used to fight viruses because they inhibit the enzyme that allows viruses to release pathogenic viral material into the body. Cyonic acid and its derivatives are effective against type 1 and 2 herpes and Varicella-Zona viruses, hepatitis, influenza, gastroenteritis, respiratory infections and wart-causing viruses.
Antiseptic, disinfectant: Flavonoids and benzoic acid give it properties that promote the body's defenses.
Antispasmodic: quercetin and kaempferid have a powerful antispasmodic action, superior to papaverin.
Anesthetic: Propolis is a powerful anesthetic, superior to codeine. Coffee acid and pinocembrine give it this property.
Regenerating, healing: Ferrucic acid has the ability to stimulate the regeneration and growth of skin cells for better healing. Propolis helps the regeneration of cells and delays their aging by activating collagen and elastin synthesis.
Detoxifying, hepatoprotective: it protects the liver from chemotherapy, alcohol and medication. In addition, artepilline C protects against the genotoxicity of methylmethane-sulfonate.
Anticancer: According to in vitro and animal trials, Propolis may be an interesting adjuvant to current treatments for certain forms of cancer. Propolis has anti-cancer properties that slow the growth of cancer cells. In addition, it would better support chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments.
