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.
