Bees make propolis by collecting nectar from buds and leaves of different types of trees and plants. They then mix it with pollen and other enzymes. Medicinally it is a powerful antibiotic selectively attacking pathogenic bacteria as well as mycosis and virus infections. Because of this selectivity, good bacteria such as flora (which performs a vital function in our digestive systems) are not affected. Sore throats and colds seem to vanish as it boosts the immune system!
Propolis may also prevent and cure inflammation and stimulate the formation of cells and tissues. It may also be effective against rheumatism. Furthermore propolis has been linked to certain pulmonary conditions as well as helping with bladder and kidney infections. It may also be effective in healing wounds. This is a fascinating product full of mystery and surprises!
