    The common honey bee is a fascinating little insect that offers humans some valuable natural foods with health-promoting benefits. Royal jelly (RJ) is a secretion product of the cephalic glands of nurse bees that have been used for centuries for its extraordinary properties and health effects. This bibliographic study aims to review many of the scientific findings, research, various actions, effects, and some uses of RJ. There are numerous biological properties and effects of RJ: Antioxidant, neurotrophic, hypoglycemic agent, hypocholesterolemic agent and hepatoprotective, hypotensive and blood pressure regulatory, antitumor, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, anti-allergic, general tonic, and anti-aging. This article also implies the role of RJ in dentistry. The antimicrobial activity and the biocompatible nature of RJ can be applicable to many dental procedures. RJ is one of the honey bee product and there still remains much to reveal about its biochemistry and biological activity in future research for our health and life benefit. More research is needed to effectively evaluate its application in dentistry. Data were chosen after the primary survey of all abstracts and selected full articles. A comparison among related data was done by the authors.
