Apitoxin

Bee venom or apitoxin is a white colored substance bees secrete through two glands on their abdomen: one acid and one alcaline. Bees use venom as a defense mechanism to protect their hive from predators and other bees. They inject it through their stinger placed on their last abdominal segment.

Even though it may sound contradictory, apitoxin is a substance with uncountable properties for human health: anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antimicrobial, healing, anti-aging,… For all these health benefits, apitoxin has been used for a long time, and increasingly in the field of medicine (apitherapy) and in the field of cosmetics. It’s used as a treatment for rheumatological and autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, lupus, multiple sclerosis … Researchers have even begun to study the possible beneficial effects of apitoxin in the treatment of cancer.

National production

Nowadays, most of the apitoxin Spanish laboratories buy is imported from abroad, which considerably increases its price. The aim of Apinature is to reduce the final costs of the product, by eliminating import costs.

Apinature’s innovation

Until now, the treatment of these diseases is done by direct application of the bee sting on the patient, causing the death of bees. To avoid these deaths and contribute to the conservation of the species, in Apinature, we carry out the process of extracting the poison from our bees with a complex method based on electro-stimulation, without them dying or suffering any damage. Then, we execute a process of purification of the poison, adjusted to the needs of each client. Finally, we storage it in optimal conditions, to avoid its degradation. This is why we are producers of bee venom of excellent quality, which we offer to our customers in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors.
