What is propolis?

Propolis is a resin bees collect from trees forming part of the immune system trees use to defend themselves against disease. Honey bees collect the resin and mix it with their own secretions and beeswax to form propolis which they use to protect the hive.


What are the natural health benefits of propolis?

Propolis is used in the hive for a variety of defensive and protective purposes. Historically, records show the Greeks recognised the healing qualities of propolis, using it for treating wounds. Hippocrates himself, the father of modern medicine, apparently prescribed propolis for promoting the natural healing of the skin and in the gut, both internal and external.
Research in America, Poland and Russia suggest that propolis can help with the skin’s complexion, and with the natural immune response to external allergens. Propolis has become known as the ‘woman’s friend’. It has been shown to could be helpful in the management of periods.


What is bee pollen

Bee pollen is the most nutritionally rich of all products from the beehive. Worker bees collect flower pollen, mix it with nectar and store it in special baskets on their hind legs before returning it to the hive and storing it.
Bee pollen is called natures own perfect food. It has been found to very rich in vitamins and contains all amino acids and almost all known vitamins and minerals.
Since the composition of pollen changes from species to species, variation in absolute amounts of the different compounds can be very high. Protein contents of above 40% have been reported, but the typical range is 7.5 to 35%: typical sugar content ranges from 15 to 50% and starch content is very high (up to 18%) in some wind-pollinated grasses It is high in B-complex and vitamin A, C, D and E. It also contains lecithin, beta-carotene and selenium.

 NOTE: Products containing bee pollen may cause reaction in allergy sufferers. If you are allergic to bee stings, seek medical advice before using such products.
