Bee venom is a complex mix of at least 18 physiologically active compounds. These compounds give bee venom an extensive range of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Additionally, bee venom has marked effects on blood flow and tissue permeability and also appears to increse production of the natual anti-inflammatory compound cortisol through the release of ACTH. In localised chronic inflammatory conditions, bee venom appears able to alter and modulate the locally occurring inflammatory response, thus giving the immune system another chance to deal with the problem.
A number of specially selected ingredients have been expertly combined with New Zealand bee venom to create this effective Bee Venom Balm.
Please Note: NO bees are harmed in the bee venom collection process.
