What Is Propolis?
Propolis is a natural substance produced by bees. They make it from trees and buds. Propolis contains tree resin along with essential oils. The bees combine these with waxes and bioflavonoids to create propolis.
Bees coat the inside surface of their hives with propolis. They also use it to reduce the size of the entrances to their hives and blocking up holes. The bees polish the propolis, creating a sterile environment. Propolis plays a vital role in protecting the colony from invasive predators. It stops the spread of infection within the hive.
Bee propolis is one of nature’s richest sources of bioflavonoids for natural defense.
Raw propolis contains 50-70% resins and balsams, 30-50% wax, 5-10% pollen, and 10% essential oils. Propolis also includes a wide variety of additional elements. These include organic and amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and most importantly bioflavonoids.
A healthy immune system in humans may be supported by the antioxidant effects of bioflavonoids in propolis.
