I’m curious to give Royal Jelly a try. Unfortunately the highly recommended YS Royal Jelly Honey Bee doesn’t get shipped to Canada.
Any other suggestions? Brands? Stores? I live in Vancouver in case that helps.
This is the original product I wanted to buy:

I am not sure, but I wonder if Whole Foods would have it? I believe they have a couple stores in Vancouver?

@elchalten: Do you have GNC? That is where I bought mine. I think J got hers at Vitamin Shop. I will send you my 3/4 jar if you want it. ;o)

@septcabride: Can you send it express please?! ;0) We do have a GNC but they don’t sell RJ. Argh.

Farmer’s markets? We have local bee keepers and that’s where I would try to find some.

@elchalten: Seriously – PM me your address and I will send it to you. I think it has a shelf life, so I have been wondering what the heck to do with it.
It’s important – bc you know I totally credit the RJ (and the PP!) with my BFP.

Amazon has some sponsored links looks like this store ships to Canada

Well.ca is my go-to if I cant find things locally. Free shipping 😀

I’m so glad you asked this question – i definitely need to get some and haven’t been able to find it. I’ll check amazon.ca and well.ca – and I’m hoping that my local health food store might be able to get some shipped in.

Try an acupunturist, mine carries it although she suggested bee pollen for me instead.

@elchalten: Great question! I was wondering the same thing…
@urchin: Free shipping! Thanks for sharing–I’ll have to check it out!
@lonsk: My AP doesn’t carry any kinds of supplements.

@redsmarties: & @MrsFarmer: Well, the Canadian Bees have to get KU as well, right 🙂
@lonsk: Do you know the reasoning why your AP suggested bee pollen instead of RJ?
@silver1: & @urchin: Thanks, I’ll check them out.

@elchalten: Heck YES we do. I feel like we should start a business, specializing in all the TTC-specific things that we can’t find in Canada. We’d probably make a killing (and we could sell some cheaper CBEFM sticks to our Aussie bees, too!)

@elchalten: Bee pollen is sort of like a super nutrient, but let me tell you it tastes like licking a bee’s ass (not that I’ve experienced that but it’s what I imagine a bee butt tasting like!)
Here are a few things it is useful for (obviously not all are necessary for TTC, but supposedly a libido booster)
Relief for Arthritis Help with Prostate problems Improving digestion
Skin problems such as eczema & psoriasis
Hormonal balance, such as PMT & menopause
Repetitive colds & flu
Weight gain or weight loss
Reproductive system – impotence, infertility, loss of libido etc
Low or high blood pressure
Nervous system problems
Bowel problems – constipation, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome etc
To help protect against adverse effects associated with radiation treatment
To help prevent premature aging
To eliminate toxicity from the body
