Propolis - aka, ‘bee glue’ - is a resinous mixture created by honey bees, which they use to seal up unwanted spaces in their hive and protect it from infection. It's been used in tribal medicines for thousands of years thanks to its antimicrobial, anti-oxidative, anti-ulcer and anti-tumour properties.
Bee propolis extract is becoming a popular, natural supplement to help boost our natural defences and immune system. If you think about it, honey is an extremely popular, natural food item that is recommended to help soothe sore throats and battle cold symptoms, so it would make sense that other items found in the bee hive have similar properties.
Honey bees combine their saliva and beeswax with other matter collected from various botanical sources.
This material is then used to seal up small cracks in their hive, preventing the possibility of predators and harmful bacteria entering the beehive.
Although there is still a lot of research to be carried out on bee propolis and exactly what is in it that makes it so vital to the protection of the bee hive, scientists have discovered that bee propolis is jam packed full of bioflavonoids – compounds derived from plants.
Bioflavonoids are well-known for their potent antioxidant properties. These bioflavonoids may promote a healthy immune system.
We recommend using our Liquid Propolis twice per day by adding 5 drops (0.25ml) to products such as water, coconut water, yoghurts etc.
It can also be applied to your skin as a natural anti-oxidant rich moisturiser.
