bee's royal jelly in vancouver

My annoying aunts and relatives want me to bring some of this "royal jelly" back to HK cause is very popular there.

at first i was like WTF is royal jelly... i searched around save-on and other groceries stores.. even people there went WTF.

i guess i can only get this in specialty places, anyone know where i can get it? I'm not gonna travel up north to like kamlopps just for some bee's secretion shit. So hopefully someone here can tell me where to get it in Vancouver

You can get them at Aberdeen. It's on the bottom floor next to the market place.

You can get them at any health store, or any place that sells supplements.

they sell fresh stuff at this little bee place on 152 and 72nd or somewhere around there, its got big yellow signs and from the writing im asuming it's geared towards the Asian crowd looking for this "royal jelly"

I think it's available at most chinese herbal/medicinal places, and maybe even the herbal section of the asian groceries.

They tout a million different properties, but the only one that is proven is its antibacterial properties. People buy it for the wrong reasons, but it's quite good for you. Totally not worth what they charge for it though. And with all supplements, people don't actually take it properly, so they are wasting their money anyway.

Supplements in HK are usually more than 3X the price. It's ridiculous!
