What is Apilarnil, and why is it man’s most powerful natural testosterone supplement? (seriously)

I first learned about drone bee larvae a few years back, at an insects as feed and food conference I spoke at in Germany.

A researcher explained the nutrient content of honeybee grubs, and that German beekeepers throw away more than 3,000 tons of drone bee larvae per year!

What a waste, because it’s an absolute powerhouse of nutrients.

However, because of the drone bee position at the bottom of the hive hierarchy, nobody really cares about them.

They’re kind of like straight white conservative males: required for the continuation of civilization, but universally despised and don’t get the credit they earn. ?

Also, fewer than 15% of drone bees get to mate with the queen.

Immediately after they ejaculate, they die, because their penis falls off when the queen flies away. (see the video proof here on Reddit)

WTF, right!

So why the hell am I talking about drone bees?

Because the larvae are one of the most impactful insects I’ve ever consumed.

Wait, scratch that – one of the most powerful supplements I’ve ever consumed, period.

I’ve talked a little bit about pan de abeja, known as bee bread, which is a blend of pollen, nectar, and enzymes that also contain various vitamins (A, E, B3, B1, B, H), minerals (Zn, Cu, Fe, K, Na), polyphenolic compounds, 15 of 20 amino acids, and omega fatty acids.

Before I tried drone bee larvae I thought I’d found the holy grail, as pan de abeja is like nature’s mix of a red bull protein shake, with zero crash.

I could practically live on the stuff. (You can too – get pan de abeja here)

Then I discovered drone bee larvae, and unsurprisingly, people in rural agricultural areas of Cambodia consumed it along with parts of the honeycomb, because of the benefits.

That’s where I first had it, but I’ve since then found out that it’s consumed in many parts of the developing world where honeybees are prevalent.

How would a completely uneducated populace know about benefits that scientific researchers are only beginning to “discover”?

Because it works.

Strength, vitality, and sexual energy are very important to indigenous populations, and in SE Asia specifically, the most valuable aspects of any product are if:

  1. they’ll give the man a raging hard-on
  2. they’ll make the woman’s baby cuter than her sister’s baby

People might not be able to articulate WHY something works, especially at a PhD level, but they know IF it works.

And drone bee larvae -apilarnil, or zanganos, or សត្វឃ្មុំដ្រូន- work like magic.

Since drones are responsible for fucking the queen, even if only once, they’re born with as many as 10 million sperm.

While in the larval stage (maggots or grubs) the nutrients are highly concentrated in their bodies, including lipids, proteins, and glycogen.

The grub’s haemolymph is richer in nutrients than other animals and even beyond human blood.

Drone bee larvae have more than 9 times more magnesium, more phosphorus, and the carb composition is derived from fructose vs glucose in human blood.

Fructose has a low glycemic index, and is commonly found in fruits and vegetables. It’s also part of what makes bee maggots taste sweet.

It impacts insulin levels much less and the changes to blood sugar levels are much more gradual, than glucose or sucrose.

But drone grubs have even more complexity than just their sugars. The chemical composition is extensive:

  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • phosphorus
  • iron
  • copper
  • manganese
  • zinc
  • sodium
  • potassium
  • vitamin A
  • beta carotene
  • xanthophyll
  • vitamin B
  • choline
  • lysine
  • hystidine
  • arginine
  • spargic acid
  • tronina serine
  • glycine
  • alanine
  • valine
  • methionine
  • isoleucine
  • leucine
  • tyrosine
  • phenylalanine

All of that is packed into a small grub a bit larger than a bean, carefully nurtured by the genius worker bees with some of nature’s finest feed inputs.

And what does apilarnil do for people?

In the macro, it boosts the immune system, supports healthy hormones, has strong antiviral properties, and fights fatigue, along with the aforementioned benefits of sexual function.

There’s a ton more that is being discovered for the science bros (a natural organic apitherapy steroid!), but as with many naturally occurring nutrient-dense compounds, the best evidence for efficacy is hundreds of years of use by rural populations for the readily seen benefits.

There’s no placebo effect here – the impact is real.

Credit for the discovery goes to Romanian scientist Andrew Tate – sorry no that’s incorrect, it’s Nicolae V. Ilieşiu.

From a laboratory perspective he identified the compounds which make it exciting from a nutritional standpoint.

But for thousands of years, strong men and satisfied women have known all about the positive effects of drone bee larvae.

And today, as with many things that are natural and just work, drones are thrown away (while millions buy the blue pill).

Have you ever eaten honeybee grubs?

What did you feel, what was your body’s response, how did it work for you?
