WHAT IS PROPOLIS?
Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is often called "nature's penicillin" due to its antibacterial, antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral properties. Synthetic antibiotics carry with them side effects - propolis, has no such side effects. It has also been shown to fight bacterial strains that have become resistant to synthetic antibiotics.
Bees collect propolis, combine it with nectar and treat it with their own enzymes. They use propolis to seal the hive, and also at the entrance to the hive to sterilize themselves as they come and go. The bees must be doing something right because beehives contain less bacteria and are far more sterile than hospitals.
FACT: Bees are the only insects having been found to be bacteria free.
