What is so special about Bee Venom Value
Bee venom is a unique multi-component complex, which contains about 30 biologically active compounds, some of which are practically impossible to get synthesized by chemical methods. The main components are peptides: melittin, apamin, peptide 401, adolapin, and protease inhibitors.
Bee venom has multiple effects on the body: help keep the blood circulation in normal, support physical strength and well being, support to joint mobility, has anti-oxidant effects, support to the immune system.
Bee venom might modify the immune system functions in the body and contribute to the increased production of cortisol. The healing potency of BV in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatism is initiated after stimulating the production of cortisol in the adrenal glands.
In animal studies conducted last year, doctors in South Korea found that melittin, the principal peptide in bee venom, blocks the expression of inflammatory genes that can cause painful tissue swelling in rheumatoid arthritis patients.
Next, researchers tested the anti-inflammatory effects of melittin on human synovial cells of arthritis patients. Synovial cells are those that line the joints, and which are vulnerable to inflammation among arthritis sufferers.
They found the melittin blocked the expression of the genes that cause the inflammation and pain suffered by arthritis patients. The melittin worked in a similar way to a class of drugs called cox-2 inhibitors, which are now used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and reduce inflammation, the scientists wrote.

Glucosamine is a major component of soft tissues such as cartilage, ligament, tendon, skin etc. Glucosamine is produced in the body from glucose and an amino acid, glutamine. It stimulates the manufacture of the soft tissue, as well as promoting the incorporation of sulfur into the tissue, and is therefore responsible for both the manufacture and proper function of joints and tissue such as ligaments, tendons and cartilage.
Glucosamine has been reported to have the potential to slow the degradation of cartilage and can also help the body repair eroded and damaged cartilage. Glucosamine not only stimulates the production of cartilage but it can also improve joint function and help reduce the pain of those suffering from osteoarthritis. Symptoms such as joint tenderness, pain on standing, pain on walking, joint swelling and spontaneous pain can be reduced.
Greenshell Mussel Powder
Greenshell Mussel Powder has been utilized as an oral supplement by sufferers of the symptons of joint inflammation, stiffness and pain throughout the world since as the 1970s. Use has continued to grow as a supplement for joint health independently and in combination with other well known complimentary joint and bone health ingredients.
Three key components have been identified as primarily being responsible for the beneficial effects of Green Shell Mussel Powder. It is these three compounds working together generating the synergies that comprise the anti-inflammatory moiety. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), omega 3 fatty acids (DHA, EPA) and a unique phosphorylated glycogen molecule have all been shown independently to be important ingredients in joint health promotion. Whilst research continues to identify the exact biochemical mechanism of each compound what is clear is that the activity of the three combined in Greenshell Mussel Powder exceeds the sum of each individual component revealing an important natural synergy present in whole mussel powder.
Understanding of Greenshell Mussel Powder's importance as a joint health ingredient is on the rise as manufacturers of supplements ad dunctional foods look for proven ingredients to support the needs of consumers looking for matural joint health remedies.
