The older generation often experiences bone and joint pain, and they are seeking out ‘bee stings,’ having been told it offers great relief for rheumatism. While this method may seem strange, there is a scientific basis for it. Bee venom is an all natural way to improve healing in the body.

Bee venom is well known for improving blood flow through the body, reducing pain, improving gland function and creating antibodies. It also increases the level of hemoglobin and white blood cells, assists in healing wounds, bronchial asthma, gout, alcoholism, psoriasis, sterility, respiratory disease, coagulation of the blood, and rheumatic diseases that cause inflammation of the joints.
