What is glucosamine?

Glucosamine (glu - cos - a mean) is a natural substance made from crab and shrimp shells. It is a component of cartilage, tendons and ligaments in the body.

It is needed for the formation of new cartilage in the joints of the fingers, wrists, toes, ankles, knees, hips and between the discs of the spine, acting as a lubricant and shock absorber. As we get older, our body finds it more difficult to produce adequate amounts of glucosamine.

What is bee venom for?

Bee venom consists of more than 18 natural substances that cannot be chemically reproduced. One of the most important components is melittin (mel-a-tin). This is shown to be one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory agents known - it is 100 times more potent than hydrocortisol.

The recommended dosage is 1 capsule three times a day, however an initial small dose is recommended as a simple precaution against the possibility of an allergic reaction.
