Each pack contains 180 chewable tablets. This is a six month supply, taken one tablet a day providing 500mg of honeybee propolis. The word propolis comes from the Greek language “defender of the city”. The bees for millions of years have protected their hives from invasion and infection with a sticky, resinous substance called propolis. The elder bees within the hive gather the propolis from the bark and leaf buds of certain trees and plants. The propolis is brought back to the hive, mixed with wax and saliva to creating a greenish brown rubbery substance with which to seal, polish and coat the interior of the hive. This provides the queen bee with a sterile environment in which to hatch her eggs, and ensures that wind, rain, pollution, bugs and parasites are kept out, as well as bacteria. *

If you are tired of swallowing capsules and pills, this chewable tablet is just right for you.*

Developed from nature's pharmacy, the beehive, Honeybee Propolis thus offers strong antibiotic, antiseptic, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. When used daily, it can help build the body's natural resistance to infections and diseases. So get your body the defense it needs!*

Building Immunity: Repeated use of antibiotics leads to a decreased resistance germs. Propolis is both a strong antibiotic and anti inflammatory among other things which helps the build immune system.*

Allergies: Regulates histamine and serotonin which are required by the body to help cope with allergies.*

Sinus and throat problems: Because of its antiseptic and anti-viral properties it helps with sinus and throat issues.*

The National Center for Biotechnology Information, in its site www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5549483/ describes in detail the benefits of propolis. “Propolis is generally known as the “bee glue”, which is a generic name that refers to the resinous substance accumulated by the bees from different types of plants. The word “propolis” is derived from Greek to mean defense for “pro” and city or community for “polis”, or the beehive, in other words. Propolis functions in sealing holes and cracks and for the reconstruction of the beehive. It is also used for smoothing the inner surface of the beehive, retaining the hive's internal temperature (35°C), preventing weathering and invasion by predators. Furthermore, propolis hardens the cell wall and contributes to an aseptic internal environment. Propolis generally becomes soft and sticky upon heating. It also possesses a pleasant smell. Propolis and its extracts have numerous applications in treating various diseases due to its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antimycotic, antifungal, antiulcer, anticancer, and immunomodulatory properties. *

Propolis is the third most important component of bee products. It is composed mainly of resin (50%), wax (30%), essential oils (10%), pollen (5%), and other organic compounds (5%). Phenolic compounds, esters, flavonoids, terpenes, beta-steroids, aromatic aldehydes, and alcohols are the important organic compounds present in propolis.*

Twelve different flavonoids, namely, pinocembrin, acacetin, chrysin, rutin, luteolin, kaempferol, apigenin, myricetin, catechin, naringenin, galangin, and quercetin; two phenolic acids, caffeic acid and cinnamic acid; and one stilbene derivative called resveratrol have been detected in propolis extracts by capillary zone electrophoresis. Propolis also contains important vitamins, such as vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, and E and useful minerals such as magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), potassium (K), sodium (Na), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), manganese (Mn), and iron (Fe). A few enzymes, such as succinic dehydrogenase, glucose-6-phosphatase, adenosine triphosphatase, and acid phosphatase, are also present in propolis.” *

In that same research article, the Center also lists the benefits of propolis as:

“Gastrointestinal Disorder

Infection with parasites usually occurs upon contact with an infected surface. The symptoms of parasitic infection of the GI tract include abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloating, and nausea. Propolis has been reported to have several biological efficacies including anticancer, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory activities. There are a few studies that reported the clinical use of propolis in the treatment of viral infections. In one study, the in vitro effect of propolis ethanolic extract on the growth and adherence of Giardia duodenalis trophozoites was evaluated. Propolis was shown to inhibit growth and adherence of the trophozoites. It also promoted the detachment of these parasitic organisms. Its efficacy against giardiasis has also been reported in a clinical study whereby children and adults with giardiasis-given propolis showed a cure rate between 52% and 60%, whereas those given the conventional drug showed a 40% cure rate. Another experimental study showed that propolis has antihistaminergic, anti-inflammatory, antiacid, and anti-H. pylori activities that can be used to treat gastric ulceration.*

Gynecological Care

Widespread causes of indicative vaginitis are bacterial vaginosis (BV) and vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). The depletion of Lactobacillus spp. in the vagina is a distinguished feature of vaginal infections. The infection is accompanied by an overgrowth of vaginal pathogens such as yeast-like fungi and an elevated vaginal pH. Diabetes patients are more prone to having vaginal infections caused by Candida albicans. A study conducted on the application of 5% aqueous propolis solution resulted in an improvement in vaginal well-being. In addition to providing antibiotic and antimycotic actions, propolis provides early symptomatic relief due to its anesthetic properties. Thus, propolis may be used for Recurrent Vulvovaginal Candidiasis (RVVC) and can be an alternative option for patients who are unable to take antibiotics due to a concurrent pharmacological treatment. The effectiveness of propolis against conventional antifungal nystatin has shown satisfactory results. Propolis extract solution (PES) also show low toxicity in human cells and can be an alternative treatment for chronic vaginitis. In addition, PES has antifungal properties and it can be used as antibiofilm material for RVVC to counteract biofilm growth of C. albicans and resistance in antifungal drug.*

Oral Health

The oral cavity has an abundant bacterial microflora and excessive bacterial growth may lead to several conditions such as oral diseases. Studies have shown that propolis may restrict bacterial-plaque development and periodontitis-causing pathogens because of its antibacterial properties. *Selected propolis activities according to the health benefits *

Dermatological Care

Propolis is widely used in dermatological products such as creams and ointments. Its use in skin care products is based on its antiallergy, anti-inflammation, antimicrobial properties, and promotive action on collagen synthesis. A recent study comparing the effect of propolis and the conventional drug silver sulfadiazine showed that propolis notably decreased free radical activity in healing the wound beds which supported the repair process. A clinical study on acne patients using ethanolic extract propolis showed its high efficacy in the treatment of acne vulgaris [102]. Propolis also shows positive collagen metabolism in the wound during the healing process by increasing the collagen content of tissues . A study demonstrated the use of propolis as an alternative therapy for wound healing to promote wound closure, especially under conditions such as human diabetic foot ulcer (DFU). Fibronectin (FN) is a multifunctional glycoprotein of high molecular weight, which influences the structural stability and functional properties of various organs and tissues (Stoffels, 2013). The fibronectin matrix and its accumulation are essential for cell migration, cell proliferation, cell differentiation, cell adhesion, apoptosis, cellular signaling, angiogenesis, collagen biosynthesis, re-epithelialization, clot formation, and platelet activity. Fibronectins are also important in the repair mechanisms for conditions such as glycoprotein intensified degradation, which leads to a defective cellular microenvironment and affliction in the structure of granulation tissues. This condition may prevent the wound from healing or inhibit the repair process. The accumulation of fibronectin in the extracellular space also modulates the secretion of other repairing components such as collagen type I and type III, tenascin, laminin, and fibrillin. Propolis has demonstrated favorable effects in the wound-healing process such as antifungal and antibacterial activities due to its components such as flavonoids, phenolic compounds, terpenes, and enzymes. It also reduces the activity of free radicals (ROS) in the wound bed favoring the repair process. Propolis has also demonstrated great effects on collagen metabolism by increasing the amount of both type I and type III collagens in tissues. The reduction of ROS and accumulation of collagen aid in balancing the extracellular matrix and generating granulation tissues. Propolis is a potential apitherapeutic agent that is able to modify the metabolism of fibronectin by developing a fibrous network of extracellular matrix and inhibiting fibronectin disintegration. The active components in propolis such as quercetin and resveratrol inhibited fibronectin biosynthesis and TGF Beta-dependent production of fibronectin, respectively, in C2C12 myoblasts. Both the components play important roles in regulating the expression of fibronectins. Studies have also shown that mobility and migration of epithelial cells are dependent on reduced fibronectin content in the extracellular matrix. Reduced amounts of this glycoprotein in propolis effectively treated wounds and produced granulation tissues. Therefore, the influence of propolis on fibronectin metabolism may alter the mechanism of wound healing. Several health benefits of propolis related to gastrointestinal, gynecological care, oral health, skin care, and oncological treatments are tabulated in the table below. Selected propolis activities according to the health benefits. *

A growing problem today is antibiotics resistance which is caused due to the overuse of antibiotic drugs. Diseases that could once be controlled by modern medicine such as antibiotics, will become threat once again. Research shows that propolis could be an important alternative because of its building immunity and potent antibiotic property.*

It has been effective against many types of bacteria. It helps raise body’s natural resistance top diseases by stimulating and rejuvenating body’s own immune system. In one of the study, propolis was able to cease the acitivity of pyogenes (strep throat causing bacteria) that were difficult to treat otherwise. Propolis has shown a high level of antibacterial activity against all tested MRSA strains, concluding that propolis could serve as an alternative product ofor therapy for microbial function.*

Bee propolis was traditionally used as a mouth disinfectant and till date has been found to be very beneficial for oral hygiene. The antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antiviral properties are especially effective for treating gingivitis and periodontitis, and preventing cavities and bacterial plaque. *

  • Strengthening immune system:
    Certain compounds like propolis are rich in flavonoids that help promotes cell regeneration. It also helped with minor wounds, cuts and bruises. *
  • Lowering blood pressure
    Researxchers believe that lowering TH enzyme could lower blood pressure. Propolis helps decrease TH activity and could help lowering and controlling blood pressure. *
  • Treating allergies
    Propolis may be effective in relieving allergic symptoms through inhibition of histamine release. Histamine that causes people to sneeze is controlled by propolis, thereby proving to be an effective agent for treating allergies. *

In addition, Bee Propolis also helps with

  • Combating infections caused by food poisoning *
  • Ear infections*
  • Improving skin health*
  • Heal cold sores*
  • Preventing respiratory infections*
