Propolis is a  resinous mixture that bees produce when collecting substances from the sap of specific shrub trees.  When bees combine the sap with their own natural discharges and beeswax, Propolis is produced.

Interestingly, the word Propolis is derived from the Greek language, where pro means “at the entrance” and polis means “community”.  With the sticky byproduct naturally used by bees to coat their hives in an extra defensive layer, the word has a unique history.

If you’re after a natural product to aid in boosting your immune system, then Propolis may be just right for you.

Why Use Bee Propolis?

Propolis contains high concentration of biologically active flavonoids in addition to essential oils, waxes and pollen. These flavonoids have antioxidant activity which provide protection to plants and animals. These properties potentially offer a range of health benefits for your body.

The potential health benefits of Propolis include a range of antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and even anti-inflammatory uses.  Propolis can be applied directly onto the affected area of your skin, or alternatively can be ingested for both treatment and a preventative, immune boost.  

Propolis liquid, or capsules, can be taken daily to support a healthy immune system.
