Background


MRVL Health™ was founded by two long-time friends with an interest in blue scorpion venom research and a yearning to make a positive difference in the world.

For decades, scientists around the globe have researched the complex compounds within blue scorpion venom and have discovered potential health benefits.

With further research and development, MRVL labs perfected a technique to extract, isolate, and highly purify the beneficial antioxidants, peptides, amino acids and enzymes within the venom to create our proprietary ingredient—Blue Scorpion Peptide CTX™.

Today, the minerals, enzymes, vitamins, amino acids and peptides of MRVL’s proprietary Blue Scorpion Peptide CTX™ have been scientifically formulated.  The product is a revolutionary dietary supplement to support your body’s natural immune function.

Dr. Alkmini Anastasiadou

“Healing with natural substances is as old as humankind itself. Its origins are lost in the midst of time. Today, the use of these promising natural substances is widespread, widely popular, and effective. I am excited to be on the MRVL team, which uses highly sought-after natural substances derived from blue scorpion venom in many of its products.”

Alkmini Anastasiadou, M.D., is a Manhattan based holistic endocrinologist who combines traditional and alternative medicine with nutritional counseling and lifestyle changes.

Her other specialties include medical weight loss, type II diabetes, hypoglycemia, estrogen dominance, PCOS, PMS, irregular periods, menstrual cramps, and menopausal hot flashes.

Dr. Anastasiadou earned her medical degree from the Medical Academy of Gdansk, a prestigious European medical school with a history dating back to the Guild of Surgeons established in 1454.
