Pollen Propolis

Propolis are the strongest found in nature, and have helped bees survive for thousands of years unchanged. Since ancient times, propolis has been used to treat stomach aches and ulcers, open wounds, abscesses, coughs and colds. Modern uses also include: temporary relief from sore throats, cuts, burns, stings and bites, and for general health and well being. Some cancer sufferers have found that taking propolis has helped their white blood cell counts to rebound after chemotherapy. Bee pollen is the most nutritionally rich of all products from the beehive, containing 22 amino acids, and the 22 basic elements which make up the human body.

Bees Wax

Propolis are capable even of destroying bacteria which has developed a resistance to modern, synthetic antibiotics. The pollen content of propolis is very important, too, containing, as it does, 16 minerals, 16 vitamins, all 18 amino acids, 21 enzymes and a host of other elements. It helps to strengthen the immune system, and provides antioxidant protection against the free radicals, which modern medicine believes are harmful. It also inhibits the release of histamine, and helps to combat allergic reactions such as hay fever. You may never look at a bee in quite the same way again.

The antioxidant, antimicrobial and antifungal activities of propolis offer scope for applications in food technology. One special advantage is that, unlike some conventional preservatives, the residues of propolis seem to have a generally beneficial effect on human health.

Bee Propolis

Propolis are produced by bees for use in the hive but propolis is a kind of sealant or caulk that eliminates small gaps or open holes that measure approximately 0. 2 inches (six millimetres) or less with beeswax used to fill larger openings. Bees collect resinous sap from trees or other sources and mix it with wax to make propolis, which is typically dark brown and tacky but can harden in cold temperatures. In contrast to propolis, honey is a liquid bee food source made from flower. Properties and serve various medicinal purposes. Although it was initially assumed that bees made and used propolis to protect the hive from exposure to rain and cold, it is now known that the sealant serves a series of purposes. Propolis can make a hive more sound and stable as a structure, prevent excess vibration within it, reduce the number of entrances thus making it easier to secure the colony, and prevent bacterial and fungal growth. In addition, bees use propolis to safely seal away any waste products, dead insects or small animals that cannot be removed via the hive entrances.
