How to prepare a Royal Jelly and Ginseng drink?

In reading about Bruce Lee's diet, I came across a few interesting things I'm going to play with. One is eating more frequent meals. I'm trying to stop losing weight and start gaining weight, so, that makes sense.

Another interesting one was a frequent Royal Jelly / Ginseng drink. I could use the extra B vitamins (I was dealing with shingles not too long ago), and Ginseng sounds interesting.

When I google it, I find something like this that doesn't look very organic or ideal. (looks too strong or medicinal)

How might he have done it? Maybe a ginseng tea with a teaspoon of royal jelly?

Interesting.. there's different types of Ginseng. Maybe I'll pick up some Tienchi? Though, I'd like it to be organic and in my drink. Hmm.

I love the Y.S. honey flavor. But, I guess the pollen is a little weird? (I've never tried it.) If it doesn't work out, I'm also interested in trying to ferment a pollen vinegar. I feel like adding my own ginseng would give me more control over the variety / amount. I'm looking at maybe Panax ginseng?

Off topic? Organic royal jelly and a 5,000 year old chinese root that I'd like to prepare. That's legit paleo.

Or maybe this stuff? http://www.drvita.com/p-6844-ys-eco-bee-farms-alive-bee-power-royal-jelly-paste-625-mg-203-oz.aspx?CAWELAID=1906478565&catargetid=1920411424&gclid=CND2xZ_duLcCFUQ6Qgodoj8ALg "Super Ultimate Strength" sounds a bit much.

I've used Y.S. Organic Bee Farms Royal Rush before; it's a mixable powder. It definitely gives an energy boost, and has a spectrum of vitamins you'd expect from bee products. The taste of all these products like a lot to be desired.

Beware that royal jelly is quite high in estradiol. So, if you're a male PH'r, you may want to balacne this against your actual or perceived testosterone levels. Dietary estrogen and similar compoundsaren't horrible in amounts that aren't large, in my humble opinion.
