Propolis

Add to Wish list

Propolis is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve sore throat and/or other mouth and throat infections and inflammations.

Propolis - A Healing Gift from the Humble Bee

Propolis is a great example of nature’s splendid economy. A resinous natural substance produced by bees to protect and line the inner walls of their hives, it doubles as a powerful medicinal remedy for humans, who have used it for centuries, if not millennia.

The strong antioxidant and infection-fighting properties of propolis are immediately related to the biologically active compounds in it. These are known as polyphenols and flavonoids and have been shown by science to have a demonstrable effect on bacteria, fungi and viruses. Astonishingly, propolis contains 500 times more flavonoids than are to be found in oranges, for example.

Recent research indicates that propolis has a direct, positive effect on the immune system and is in fact a powerful natural anti-inflammatory.  This makes it ideal for upper respiratory tract infections. As well, exciting new research suggests that propolis may also help treat arthritis.
