Facts about propolis

Most people are familiar with honey, but not all of them with propolis.

What propolis is!?

Propolis is a resinous material that bees use to seal small cracks and gaps in the hive. Bees use propolis as a sort of external immune defence mechanism. Basicly -  killing the germs and bacteria at source creates a sterile home for the bees. Because of propolis its believed that beehive is one of the most sterile places on the Earth.

Propolis has been used for medicinal purposes since before 350 BC. The ancient Greeks used propolis to treat abscesses, Assyrians used it to help heal wounds and tumors, and Ancient Egyptians used propolis for mummification. Alongside enjoying the great effects of honey & milk baths, Egyptian Pharaoh Cleopatra used propolis for skin care. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates used propolis for healing infections and wounds.

Propolis is the focus of many scientific research projects surrounding it’s healing properties. As an antimicrobial, preliminary scientific studies show that some types of propolis have in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity.  Propolis is also known in science as an antioxidant...


 

Propolis is especially rich in amino acids, important for immune system function.

It has a high vitamin content and is extremely rich in bioflavonoids (Vitamin P). Bioflavonoids are reported to have numerous immune building properties and health benefits. Bioflavonoids are the natural pigments in fruits and vegetables and are found in abundance in oranges. Propolis contains almost 500 times more bioflavonoids than is found in oranges! Bioflavonoids are researched as having particular benefit to high blood pressure, respiratory infections and liver conditions.



Except for vitamin K, Propolis contains all known vitamins and has fourteen of the 15 minerals that the human body requires for normal function (it does not contain sulfur).

Propolis is used for canker sores and infections caused by bacteria, viruses or fungus. The fact that viruses and bacteria are unable to build tolerances against propolis is particularly significant to the medical field. 




Prominent Danish scientist, Dr. K. Lund Aagaard has conducted many tests into the properties of propolis and believes that in propolis he has found a substance with the greatest efficiency against the greatest number of diseases.

“The field of influence of Propolis is extremely broad. It includes cancer, infection of the urinary tract, swelling of the throat, gout, open wounds, sinus congestion, colds, influenza, bronchitis, gastritis, diseases, of the ears, periodontal disease, intestinal infections, ulcers, eczema eruptions, pneumonia, arthritis, lung disease, stomach virus, headaches, Parkinson’s disease, bile infections, sclerosis, circulation deficiencies, warts, conjunctivitis and hoarseness.” Dr. K. Lund Aagaard

Propolis is also used for boosting the immune system, for treating gastrointestinal problems, as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. 



Recent studies into the medicinal properties of propolis have shown it to be effective in dental hygiene and the reduction of cavities. To this end, we are beginning to see the emergence of propolis-based toothpaste and dental hygiene products.

Clinical studies on mice and rats have shown that propolis has properties which might reduce the size of tumors, and prevent the development of cancerous cells.
We can say that propolis is pure power of the nature!
