Propolis is a natural resinous substance. Bees collect resin from the bark and buds of the trees and process it by mixing wax, pollen, salivary secretions and collected natural resins to form Propolis. The bees utilise this dark sticky substance to fill up any cracks and smoothing of the inner layer of the hive. This process is to seal and protect the hive from infection, fungal growth and bacteria. The bees also smear Propolis around the entrance of their hive to strengthen the hive and protect from intruders.
Propolis is a complex natural substance that contains phytochemicals, flavonoids, organic acids, vitamins and minerals. It contains flavonoids and is made up of resin & balsam 50%, wax 30% essentials oils 10%, pollen 5% and organic matter 5%. Flavonoids are one of the main groups of phenolic compounds in Propolis. This flavonoid concentration affects the bioactivity of propolis.
Propolis has been used traditionally in naturopathic medicine to support healthy immune system function. It has antioxidant activity which helps fight free radicals and assists in supporting general health and wellbeing in adults.
Excess Propolis is extracted from the beehive by beekeepers. A cold treatment prepares the substance suitable for topical use and human consumption.
Bee products have been traditionally used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years dating back to ancient Egypt and Greece. The healing properties have also been mentioned in the bible, Veda and the Quran.
