What is Bee Propolis?
Propolis is a form of resin which is collected by bees from bark and tree leaves. When combined by the worker bee with pollen, nectar and wax, it forms a 'sticky' substance termed 'propolis'. It is used around the hive as an effective sealant, filling holes and cracks in the shell of the bee hive. It is also used by bees as a 'disinfectant', where its sterile properties sterilizes the bees from infection. It is used very effectively by bees, who exploit its natural properties in many ways around the hive. To humans, it is said to stimulate the function of a healthy immune system and protect against certain conditions such as inflammation of the mucous membranes halitosis, coughs, tonsillitis and certain ulcers.*
