Type 2 diabetes is highly associated with obesity and cardiac conditions.  The pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes is related with metabolic disorders.

The antioxidant property of Royal jelly reduces the rate of lipid peroxidation and decreases the free radicals load. The reduction of lipid peroxidation and consequent free radicals load leads to increase in fat metabolism and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
In addition, increased fat metabolism also assist to lower the cholesterol and triglyceride level in blood serum. This helps to reduce the diabetes-related cardiac co-morbidities.
