Apichem Honey whats the difference?
This Honey is a unique groundbreaking product for the support of patients suffering from side effects of radiation or chemotherapy treatment.
Apichem is a special raw press honey blended out of Manuka and Kanuka honey. With our special pressing system we are able to retain and enhance the amount of propolis and pollen in addition we add pure propolis which is collected from our own bee hives. The honey boxes stay until late summer on the beehive to give bees time to collect the honeydew which will be present in higher levels at late summer.
Honey bees moving honey around inside the hive until the honey has the right humidity. Only then the honeycombs will be sealed with a very thin layer of special wax also produced by the bees.
Without exception honey which has been entirely sealed is harvested to assure the high quality we require for Apichem honey.
What is Raw Honey
When we look at the word "raw", we associated it with the preservation of important vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Just as raw vegetables are preferable because of their nutritional content, the
same is true of honey. Raw honey is honey that has not been heated, pasteurized or processed in any way. The differences between raw and pasteurized honey are substantial. Raw honey is an
alkaline-forming food that contains natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants and other important natural nutrients. These are the very nutrients that are destroyed during the heating and
pasteurization process. In fact, pasteurized honey is equivalent to and just as unhealthy as eating refined sugar.
Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Raw honey's benefits don't stop there. Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers. Raw honey is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma.
Raw Honey is an effective natural remedy for a variety of conditions
For centuries, honey has been used to treat all sorts of ailments. It can be applied topically to heal wounds and rashes, or it can be taken internally to treat infections and address other health concerns. Although there are numerous remedies, the following are popular remedies for common everyday conditions.
Raw honey's antibiotic properties are effective in treating sore throats. Raw honey coats the throat and reduces irritation.

Propolis a resin mixture that honey bees gather from the sap of pristine trees and plants in New Zealand.
New Zealand propolis is known to be very high in CAPE (caffeic acid phenethyl ester),
CAPE is an active constituent of propolis which is widely used in traditional medicine. This hydroxycinnamic acid derivate is a known activator of the redox-active Nrf2 signalling pathway in mammalian cells. We used C. elegans to investigate the effects of this compound on accumulation of reactive oxygen species and the modulation of the pivotal redox-active pathways SKN-1 and DAF-16 (homologues of Nrf2 and FoxO, respectively) in this model organism; these results were compared to the effects in Hct116 human colon carcinoma cells. CAPE exerts a strong antioxidative effect in C. elegans: The increase of reactive oxygen species induced by thermal stress was diminished by about 50%. CAPE caused a nuclear translocation of DAF-16, but not SKN-1. CAPE increased stress resistance of the nematode against thermal stress and finally a prolongation of the median and maximum lifespan by 9 and 17%, respectively. This increase in stress resistance and lifespan was dependent on DAF-16 as shown in experiments using a DAF-16 loss of function mutant strain. Life prolongation was retained under SKN-1 RNAi conditions showing that the effect is SKN-1 independent. The results of CAPE obtained in C. elegans differed from the results obtained in Hct116 colon carcinoma cells: CAPE also caused strong antioxidative effects in the mammalian cells, but no activation of the FoxO4 signalling pathway was detectable. Instead, an activation of the Nrf2 signalling pathway was shown by luciferase assay and western blots.
The Latest Weapon in the War on Cancer: Honey Bees
Proteomics reveals how ancient remedy slows prostate tumor cell proliferation

A safe substance in the venom can block tumor growth.
Pure bee venom injected into the bloodstream is highly lethal, but researchers say that parts of the venom could useful in making drugs to treat some kinds of cancer. In a new study, scientists took bee venom, as well as that of snakes and scorpions, and separated out proteins and peptides within it in to test if they could be used to block tumor growth without harming patients.
Indeed, the scientists discovered that a specific substance within the venom, called melittin, can keep malignant cells from spreading. But bees don’t make enough venom for it to be feasible to harvest it naturally, so the researchers made synthetic melittin in the lab for their tests.
The researchers, with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, presented their findings this week at the 248th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco.
“We have safely used venom toxins in tiny nanometer-sized particles to treat breast cancer and melanoma cells in the laboratory,” lead researcher Dipanjan Pan said in a statement. “These particles, which are camouflaged from the immune system, take the toxin directly to the cancer cells, sparing normal tissue.”
Bee pollen contains all the essential components of life. The percentage of rejuvenating elements in bee pollen remarkably exceeds those present in brewer's yeast and wheat germ. Bee pollen
corrects the deficient or unbalanced nutritioncommon in the customs of our present-day civilization of consuming incomplete foods, often with added chemical ingredients, which expose us to
physiological problems as various as they are numerous.
Pollen is considered an energy and nutritive tonic in Chinese medicine. Cultures throughout the world use it in a surprising number of applications.
How to use instructions
Recommended use: Two teaspoons of Apichem honey a day, one in the morning on an empty stomach
and one in the evening. The honey should be sucked slowly and not be heated in tea or so.
The Honey press works at slow speed so all the goodies can be pressed out of the combes.
