About Bee Venom
Bee venom has been used to treat arthritis, via Bee-Sting Therapy, for centuries. The actual healing process is still a bit of a mystery but ongoing research has identified a number of naturally occurring chemical compounds which appear to work together in the body.
One possible way that venom works its anti-inflammatory effects is by assisting the production of cortisone in the human body, without the side effects of synthetic cortisone. Its antioxidant qualities also make it effective as a booster for the natural immune system. Bee venom has also shown the potential to thin the blood, dilate capillaries and arteries and decrease blood cholesterol level.
Until recently bee venom therapy could only be applied with direct bee-stings or intradermal injections. In Nectar-Ease we have not only a much more palatable method of taking Bee venom but we can combine the antibacterial and antioxidant benefits of our own Active Manuka Honey.
Please note: no bees are harmed or killed in the process.
About Manuka Honey
Manuka Honey is honey that is harvested from bees that collect pollen from the New Zealand Manuka plant (Leptospermum scoparium). It is known to have strong antibacterial properties and a distinctive flavour.
About Bee Venom Extraction
No bees are harmed when extracting venom - in fact the process is less aggressive than that of extracting honey or pollen. It is done by placing glass plates, through which a light electric current runs, at the entrance to the hive. The bees sting the glass (without losing their stingers). The electric current is turned off and the beehive restarts normal activity within 5-10 minutes. Once the job is finished, the glass plates are left in a warm, dark room to dry. After 24-48 hours, the glass is scraped and the dried venom is processed.
