How does Beeswax work?

Beeswax has mild anti-swelling (anti-inflammatory) effects. There is also some evidence that it might help protect the stomach.

Are there safety concerns?

Beeswax is safe for most people.

Do not use beeswax if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding, in amounts larger than found in foods.

Dosing considerations for Beeswax.

The appropriate dose of beeswax depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for beeswax. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
