Propolis

Propolis is a compound made by bees. They collect resin from the buds of plants and mix it with enzymes to form a sticky substance high in antioxidant and antibiotic properties. With its high levels of amino acids, minerals, vitamins and flavonoids and its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, propolis is a powerful antiseptic agent and a potent initiator of the body's own immune defences, inhibiting the spread of unwanted disease.

Propolis is a compound made by bees. They collect resin from the buds of plants and mix it with enzymes to form a sticky substance high in antioxidant and antibiotic properties. Bees use propolis to repair and strengthen their hive and protect it from disease and parasitic invasion. Thus propolis is known as 'nature's best defence'.

Propolis was one of the earliest bee products used by people as a medicine. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all used propolis medicinally, with historical documents from the 4th century revealing that Hippocrates recommended propolis as a treatment.

Propolis Benefits

With its high levels of amino acids, minerals, vitamins and flavonoids and its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, propolis is a powerful antiseptic agent and a potent initiator of the body's own immune defences, inhibiting the spread of unwanted disease. In the same way it strengthens the walls of a beehive, Propolis is thought to strengthen the cell walls of mucous membranes, which are potential sites of entry for invasive substances. Propolis supports upper respiratory tract health and has a cleansing effect on the bloodstream, dispersing unwanted bacterial and fungal parasites and significantly reducing symptoms arising from environmental toxins and food allergens. Rich in natural bioflavonoids, Propolis also works to maximise the effects of Vitamin C.

Studies show propolis may be effective in healing genital herpes lesions, warts, and as an anti-tumour agent.
