The history of medicated Bee Venom patches in China reaches back to the 18th century. Hisamitsu inherited this tradition and has worked, on improving it since the company was founded in 1847. Salonpas was first introduced in 1934 and is now available in over 50 countries worldwide. Salonpas launched in the United States in 1987 and has been gaining popularity ever since.
Many people fear bees because they don't want to get stung, but, despite the discomfort felt, bee stings can actually promote health.
When a bee stinger is activated, it releases more than just venom. An estimated 18 to 20 naturally occuring antibiotics and antivirals can be found in the ensuing concoction, along with anti-inflammatory and pain reduction substances. Bee stings can also trigger reactions in the human body that generate healing properties that would otherwise remain dormant.
Consuming honey is believed to promote general wellbeing and is thought to be effective against"insomnia, anorexia, stomach and intestinal ulcers, constipation, osteoporosis, and laryngitis."
