One way to take royal jelly is in its natural state, i.e. just as it is found in the honeycomb, this is why it's known as fresh royal jelly. However, the jelly is very difficult to preserve in this natural state, which is why there are other forms available on the market such as frozen or powdered.

If you choose to eat fresh royal jelly raw, you could do so with a spoon, preferably on an empty stomach on waking, or let it dissolve under your tongue. The right amount would be half a teaspoonful per day.
