Heaven Skincare USA: Research Study - Bee Venom Kills HIV July 03 2013, 0 Comments
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND BEAUTY PRODUCTS COEXIST
Recent studies have revealed that the active toxin in bee venom, Melittin, actually kills the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) by destroying its protective outer layer without destroying other cells!
“Melittin on the nanoparticles fuses with the viral envelope,” said research instructor Joshua L. Hood, MD, PhD, via the news release. “The melittin forms little pore-like attack complexes and ruptures the envelope, stripping it off the virus.” Adding, “We are attacking an inherent physical property of HIV. Theoretically, there isn’t any way for the virus to adapt to that. The virus has to have a protective coat, a double-layered membrane that covers the virus.”
Just another reason you gotta love them!
