Bee Propolis: Loaded with Nutrients for Immune Support
In addition to honey, bees also produce two products that have been used in alternative medicine for centuries: bee pollen and propolis. Propolis is less well known than pollen but offers important potential health benefits.
Propolis is a combination of resin collected from tree bark, leaves, pollen, wax, and nectar. The bee uses the resulting sticky substance in the hive to seal it and caulk holes and cracks. It can also be found at the hive entrance, where it helps remove microorganisms from the bee’s body as it enters the hive. This measure helps to protect the colony from potentially debilitating invasions.
Propolis’s medicinal properties have been known for over 2,000 years. Hippocrates used it to treat wounds. According to reports, the Russian army used it to treat wounds on the battlefield during World War II.
All Vitamins Plus Antioxidants
Propolis is packed with nutrients and contains all vitamins except vitamin K. It also contains bioflavonoids, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. In all, scientists have identified more than 180 compounds in propolis.
The flavonoids in propolis are powerful antioxidants that help eliminate damaging free radicals from the body.
