What is Bee Propolis?

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.

How is Bee Propolis made?

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.

Studies on Bee Propolis

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.

Other studies have shown that it:

  1. Prevents + stops colds: Bee propolis’s immune-boosting properties can help fight the common cold, plus its anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties can help those unwanted post-cold infections that can follow on from colds and flu.
  2. Can help treat candida symptoms: Candida is a common cause of yeast infection caused by Candida Albicans. We all have small amounts of candida in our mouth, intestine and even skin, and day to day it does not cause issues. However, when the Candida yeast suddenly grows out of control, it causes fungal infections – most commonly thrush. A weakened immune system, high stress levels and a diet high in sugar and refined carbohydrates are among the most common reasons for generating this sudden growth of the candida yeast. The potent bioflavonoids found in bee propolis are believed by many to act as an antioxidant so powerful it can improve your immune system, and therefore contribute to a reduction in chances of suffering from thrush and other candida-caused problems.
  3. Treat genital herpes and cold sores: These are both caused by the herpes virus (HSV-1 for cold sores, HSV-2 for genital herpes). Once you have contracted the HSV-1 virus, it is likely to flare up again when you are feeling run down or stressed (so make sure you keep your immune in tip-top condition!) The anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties in bee propolis can help fight the herpes and cold sore infection.
  4. Improve fertility for women with endometriosis: There is a lot of excitement surrounding one particular study – randomized and controlled – after results showed that taking 500mg of bee propolis twice a day for 6 months resulted in a rate of 60% pregnancy rate in women with mild endometriosis, compared to 20% pregnancy rate in the placebo group.
  5. Can be used by cancer patients: There is still extensive research to be done, but there are already hundreds of scientific studies looking into the possibility that bee propolis may help combat cancer. Caffeic acid phenethyl esters from poplar propolis and Artepillin C from Bacccharis propolis have been shown to possess anti-tumour agents.

How do you use propolis?

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.
