A potent combination of three natural products that work together to provide anti-inflammatory pain relief that may help you to maintain your joint mobility.
Glucosamine is a natural substance derived from shellfish. It has been shown to aid in the repair of worn joint cartilage and to reduce joint pain and discomfort by producing cartilage components and joint fluid. It may be more easily absorbed into the body than other cartilage supplements.
Bee Venom stimulates hormones such as cortisone and hydrocortisone that increase the body's ability to fight inflammations. It contains a large number of biologically active substances including the peptides melitin, apamin and adolapin. Clinical trials show that bee venom can significantly reduce the inflammation associated with arthritis. Venom is harvested from bees using a simple, painless technique that does not harm the bee (see below).
Manuka Honey is a strong flavoured honey with a fresh, clean bite. Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) is found throughout New Zealand and often forms extensive areas of bush. The leaves are dotted with oil glands, and when bruised give off a gingery, peppery smell. The flowers vary from brilliant white to rose-pink.
The Maori people used Manuka as a medicinal plant and early European settlers called it ‘tea tree’. The plant and honey are being extensively studied for their antibacterial properties. Apart from the medicinal properties contained by all honeys, Manuka honey contains a number of natural compounds with strong antibacterial properties. However, this Manuka Honey has not been tested for its antibacterial properties.
Contains 94% Manuka Honey, 6% Glucosamine and Bee Venom at 20 parts per million.
Directions for use
Take half a teaspoon initially to check whether any allergic reactions occur. Keep in mouth until the honey gets completely dissolved. If there is no sign of allergic reaction, increase the dose gradually to 3-4 teaspoons per day. Do not take any food or drink with the product. Anyone who is allergic to bee products should consult a doctor before using Bee Venom products.
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.
