Bee Venom


Bees produce bee venom. This is the venom that causes discomfort from bee stings. Sometimes, bee venom is utilized to create pharmaceuticals. Bee venom and bee pollen, honey, propolis, and royal jelly should not be confused.

A dose of bee venom is used to treat bee sting allergy. There isn't any solid scientific evidence to back up its usage for other ailments like osteoarthritis, Parkinson's disease, MS, nerve pain, or others.


How does it work?

The immune system becomes accustomed to bee venom through regular, controlled injections under the skin, which lessens the severity of a bee venom allergy.
