What is Propolis?

Bees make propolis by gathering resin from pine and other cone-producing evergreen trees.  They blend the resin with wax flakes and pollen then take it back to the hive. There they use the sticky mess to patch holes, seal cracks and build panels in the hive. 

But propolis does more than architectural duty.  It also acts as an antiseptic barrier protecting the hive from contamination and from external invaders like mice, snakes, and lizards. In fact, the name propolis comes from the Greek meaning "defence of the city."

The antimicrobial properties of propolis protect the hive from viruses and bacteria. Researchers found that bees living in hives coated with propolis have lower bacteria in their body and also stronger immune systems.

Propolis doesn't just benefit bees. For thousands of years, folk medicine practitioners have used bee glue to treat abscesses, heal wounds, and fight infection.  In fact, propolis was listed as an official drug in the London pharmacopoeias of the 17th century.

Modern studies confirm a long list of health benefits offered by propolis.  A search of PubMed shows over 2,000 studies on bee propolis.

Here are just a few of its health benefits.

1. Anti-Microbial Action

Propolis has a wide range of antibacterial properties. It also has antifungal and anti-viral powers. 

  • Prevent respiratory tract infections
  • Remedy symptoms of the common cold
  • Prevent Middle ear infections

2. Help to heal minor burns

3. Prevents Dental Cavities

Greek and Roman physicians used propolis as mouth disinfectant. Propolis limit bacterial plaque and reduce tooth caries.

4. Could help wart removal

Excellent Product

I use propolis tincture for the relief of chest infections - an old fashioned mixture of lemon juice, honey and propolis. It works 95% of the time (only occasionally need medical support from my GP)

So glad I tried it

I, like a lot of people, experience digestive problems which are difficult to determine in origin and are irritated by medicinal options. I thought I’d try this in addition to the ‘spoonful of honey’ I take at night. I would recommend to anyone suffering from the above - give this a try - I’m certainly very pleased I did.
