Bee Propolis is a natural resinous substance made by honeybees in the process of collecting plants and bark resins for use within the beehive.
It is said to stimulate the function of a healthy immune system and protect against certain adverse health conditions*.
Propolis is one of nature's most versatile substances with a wide range of reported health benefits*, both when ingested and used in topical applications such as cuts, mouth sores, and ulcers.
Ingredients: Propolis Extract 1000mg (2:1 extracted bee propolis)
Other Ingredients: Vegetable Cellulose (capsule shell) Maltodextrine.
Scientific studies into the chemical makeup of propolis have revealed that it is comprised of 16 amino acids and is a plentiful source of bioflavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory properties, while amino acids play an important role in maintaining a healthy immune system.
Properties – As with all substances extracted from the beehive, propolis, and royal jelly included, there are seasonal and regional variations that affect the precise chemical composition of the substances. This is not a negative, merely a variable that makes specifying the actual chemical content difficult. As an average, propolis is roughly 50% resin and vegetable substance, 30% wax, 10% oils, 5% bee pollen, and 5% other minerals and compounds.
