Uniqueness of Georgian (Caucasian) bee venom powder
Uniqueness of our bee venom powder stands on the three singularities. First, it is absolutely unique flora of Georgia. Second, it is unique race of Caucasian (Georgian) Grey Bee, which has the longest among the honey bees proboscis (7.2 – 7.3 mm). And third, it is our unique method of harvesting bee venom at midnight only! Day time bees are busy with their works on various floras. All day long they are processing food in their stomach and if that period one tries to harvest venom from them, bees immediately vomit and pollute venom. Such venom always is of very low quality, in spite of its white color. Besides, daytime in the hives mostly stay little, young bees and their venom is too weak, with a very low activity and low quality. So, daytime in the hives are whether bees with full stomach with food, or young weak bees, and venom is not valuable of no one of them, at all! That’s why we harvest bee venom after midnight! This period bee’s stomach is empty, they are calm, rested and their venom is strong, with a high activity. So, during harvest we harm neither them, nor their venom. We are only company all over the world harvesting bee venom after midnight. It takes additional efforts and charges as well. But the results are really fantastic!

Our customers are producing gel, cream, balm, ointment, injectable solution and bee venom mask from our bee venom successfully! Also some of the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and nanotechnology companies are isolating very precious components from our bee venom powder, such as: melittin, Apamin, phospholipase A2, hyaluronidase and other components. A recent sensational discovery showed that the combined use of nano-particles and the bee venom melittin destroys HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and it is safe and effective!
There are several suppliers of bee venom all over the world. Most of them are beekeepers offering bee venom powder without Certificate and HPLC.It is especially difficult to find any suppliers selling bee venom with HPLC analysis. There are two reasons for that:
We have not such problem at all. It is because, we have our own HPLC (Chromatography) equipment and our professors and laboratory staff worked out a laboratory method of bee venom powder’s testing. So, when we are selling our bee venom, it is absolutely cleaned and well dried by laboratory method. It is fresh, with a high activity, always top quality and we have Certificate and HPLC analysis for each batch of bee venom powder we are offering to our permanent and new customers. Bee venom prices are also various, from $30.00 US (sometimes even much low) up to $300.00 US per grams! However, if the bee venom is of high quality, bee venom price can vary; it depends upon manufacturers expenses, cost of production, analysis price, packaging, and dealer’s commission and so on. Never treat bee venom quality according to bee venom price; because one can offer you very low quality bee venom at a very high price. Or you can purchase very high quality bee venom at a very competitive price, just the price we offer our customers.
