What is Bee Glue?

Also known as “bee glue”, propolis is produced by bees to glue the materials of their hives together. Bees collect resin from trees and other sources, mixing it with honey to form propolis.

 

Why is it special?

Propolis has proven antibiotic and antiseptic properties, protecting bee hives from getting attacked by bacteria and viruses.

 

How is it good for us?

Propolis was historically used by the Incas to bring down fever, by the Romans and Greeks as a mouth disinfectant and antibiotic for cuts and wounds, by the British as medicine, and during the World War II by the Soviets as a form of treatment for tuberculosis.

Today, propolis is used as a natural remedy for upper respiratory tract infections, the common cold, the flu, wound healing, acne, and skin infections.

 

KEY BENEFITS OF PROPOLIS

Supports Immunity when consumed

Known to contain anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, bee propolis is thought to have the ability to support immune health. According to a study published in the August 2010 issue of "Phytotherapy Research," scientists had discovered that propolis can alter or regulate the immune system. Subjects who were given bee propolis during the study had displayed higher levels of proteins and compounds that were vital in regulating the immune system.

 

Natural Antiseptic when applied topically

With active ingredients including flavonoids, phenolic acids, terpenes, amino acids and vitamins, propolis has a history of being used as antiseptic topical ointment for centuries, dating back to the ancient Egyptians. Topical use of  propolis has been shown to improve healing time and reduce pain from cold sores, as well as improve recovery from genital herpes. Researchers had found through animal testings that a single application of propolis on an epithelial closure speeded up healing, as documented in a study published in 2010.
