What is so special about Bee Venom Value
Bee venom is a unique multi-component complex, which contains about 30 biologically active compounds, some of which are practically impossible to get synthesized by chemical methods. The main components are peptides: melittin, apamin, peptide 401, adolapin, and protease inhibitors.
Bee venom has multiple effects on the body: help keep the blood circulation in normal, support physical strength and well being, support to joint mobility, has anti-oxidant effects, support to the immune system.
Bee venom might modify the immune system functions in the body and contribute to the increased production of cortisol. The healing potency of BV in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatism is initiated after stimulating the production of cortisol in the adrenal glands.
In animal studies conducted last year, doctors in South Korea found that melittin, the principal peptide in bee venom, blocks the expression of inflammatory genes that can cause painful tissue swelling in rheumatoid arthritis patients.
Next, researchers tested the anti-inflammatory effects of melittin on human synovial cells of arthritis patients. Synovial cells are those that line the joints, and which are vulnerable to inflammation among arthritis sufferers.
They found the melittin blocked the expression of the genes that cause the inflammation and pain suffered by arthritis patients. The melittin worked in a similar way to a class of drugs called cox-2 inhibitors, which are now used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and reduce inflammation, the scientists wrote.
Propolis – “recognized as a powerful, all-natural protector”
This sticky, brown resinous substance is collected by honeybees from various plants and mixed with wax. Used to sterilize their home against infection, bees also use propolis as a multi-purpose cement and varnish.
Propolis is the only food on earth containing all 22 nutrients needed by the body for complete and perfect health. It contains over 16 different vitamins, rich in amino acids and trace elements; it also has a high vitamin content, including the valuable bioflavanoids and all in complete and natural balance.
The bioflafanoids in Propolis make it a superb anti-inflammatory. Flavanoids are a class of natural products of high pharmacological potency. The high content of flavanoids in propolis is attributed to its success as a product itself. For centuries, physicians have used preparations, which contain flavanoids as the principal physiologically active constituents, in attempts to treat human disease. There are nine flavanoids in New Zealand propolis, these are unique from the mix of flavanoids in propolis of other origins.
It is also enables it to be highly effective in boosting the whole body. It is believed that Hippocrates, the father of medicine, prescribed the use of propolis to help heal sores and ulcers,
internally and externally . Unlike penicillin or other drugs, propolis it always effective, because bacteria and viruses cannot be build tolerances against it.
Propolis actually stimulates strengthens and rejuvenates the immune system, which is the body’s defense system against disease, cellular destruction and aging.
