What is Propolis?

Propolis, the most natural antibiotic man has ever discovered, was used by Greeks and Romans to treat skin lesions, and Egyptians used it in the mummification process. Today the World Health Organization has recognized Propolis as an important product for natural cure.

But what is Propolis? Propolis is a resin collected by bees from tree barks, buds or other parts of plant tissues. Bees transport these substances into the hive, add salivary secretions and wax (fatty acids), so the chemical composition stays distributed as follow: 55% vegetal resins, 30% beeswax, 10% essential oils and 5% pollen. The final product is a green sticky resin bees use to varnish the hive interior to protect it and to ensure a sterile environment. As it happens with honey, Propolis may present small changes in color and chemical composition according to the flora it originates from.

Recent scientific studies carried out in the United States, Japan and Brazil have confirmed the anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, hypertensive  and cicatrizing properties of Propolis. More than 150 active substances have been identified in Propolis, among which an array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. But the greatest virtue is the unique combination of bioflavonoid Propolis contains in exponential quantity. Flavonoids constitute a group of organic compounds whose function is to protect and defend the cells of our bodies.
