Propolis: Natures Most Potent Antioxidant

What is Propolis?

The name is derived from the ancient Greeks, who observed that honeybees will utilize this material to reduce or mostly close off the opening(s) to their hive. Pro (before) polis (the city). Propolis is a sticky, gummy and resinous material collected by honey bees from buds and the bark of trees and shrubs. The bees use this material to fill cracks, reduce openings to their hive and coat the entire inside to help protect it from disease. Bees that harvest propolis are phytochemical and medicinal experts doing specialized work for us, gathering and concentrating on a unique botanical product that would be too expensive and difficult to collect by humans!

Documented uses for propolis have included: violin varnish, anesthetic, and ointments for treating burns, cuts, abscesses, and wounds. However, Propolis is believed to be one of the most potent natural antibacterials that reduce inflammation and fights fungal, bacterial and viral infections.

Most of the compounds responsible for these benefits have been studied in other medicinal plants but unlike propolis, no known plant contains all of them.

We spent quite some time doing research and found out that Chinese, Australian made Propolis

Keep an eye on the labels though, because some of propolis from retail stores comes from China. Today we must proceed with caution with everything that comes from China; we all know why. Oddly enough, China produces one of if not the most potent type of Propolis with 300 mg of Antioxidants per gram of food or liquid. I think you can try and get Chinese propolis from there if you know of a reliable resource.
