Propolis - Nature's Most Amazing Antibiotic
The antibacterial and
anti-viral properties of propolis work to raise the body’s natural resistance
to disease by internally stimulating one’s own immune system. In doing this
propolis also supplies added amounts of Vitamin B1, B2 C and E, and all the
essential minerals including iron, calcium, manganese, and silicon to the diet.
The propolis is first collected as the sap from many species of tree, especially the poplar, and is carried to the hive in the bees' pollen baskets. The sticky resinous wax-like product is then created by the bees addition of enzymes from their glandular system mixed with resinous sap to create a substance that is a medical marvel used to treat pain and ease suffering of many long term conditions as well as a quick fix for tooth aches.
Propolis is a Greek word meaning literally "before the city." Propolis is occasionally used to restrict the entrance of the hive, strengthen the attachment of the wax comb, and cocoon any intruders too large for the bees to remove.
