The Health Benefits of Propolis

What is Propolis?

Did you know that bees produce more than just honey? They also produce a resin-like material from the buds of poplar and cone-bearing trees. This material is used as a coating to build their hives. The composition of Propolis varies depending on the region and what trees and flowers the bees have access to.


Is Propolis a new product?

Absolutely not. The use of Propolis and its medicinal properties dates back to ancient civilizations. Greeks, Assyrians and Egyptians used Propolis to treat abscesses, wounds, tumors, infections and even to embalm their mummies. Propolis has a long history of medicinal use.
