Bee Venom

Honey bee venom has been used for centuries in many different cultures.

Our Bee Venom can be take mixed with our honey or topically as a cream.

 

Peptides in the venom, principally mellitin and the less romantically named peptide-401, inhibit the inflammatory response by a combination of actions.

They stimulate the production of cortisol, as well as stabilising mast cells.

Studies have also suggested that mellitin may help inhibit inflammatory that cause the painful tissue swelling in rheumatoid arthritis.

Modern extraction techniques involve passing a small electric current across a mesh frame placed in the brood chamber of the hive. This agitates the bees, causing them to sting the mesh, releasing the contents of the venom sac, which can then be collected. The technique does not harm the bees.

 
Approximately 33,000 bee stings = 1 gram of Bee Venom.


We only use New Zealand Bee Venom VENZ™ which is collected here in NZ by modernised patented technology (Patent #329585) which allows for collecting high quality venom without harming the bees.

 

Allergy Test

If you have never had a bee sting before and just want to be sure that you are not allergic try the following allergy test. Also, if you are allergic to bee stings, take the following simple allergy test first.

On the soft skin inside your elbow smear a small amount of Bee Venom Rub crème. Wait 15 minutes, and if there is no swelling, itchiness or blistering you should not suffer from any side effects. Anybody can be allergic to Bee Venom, so we do recommend that you try our test first.
