The bee product Propolis comes from the Greek and consists of the word "Pro", German "Vor" and the word "Polis" German "city".
Since 300 BC Propolis is already used in ancient times as a health aid. In ancient Egypt, even priests used it for easy mummification and disinfection of spear and arrow wounds. It is one of the most popular natural and alternative medical natural products.
What is Propolis?
Propolis is a natural bee product from the hive. The bees collect the resin that appears on the buds of deciduous and coniferous trees, enrich it with important endogenous substances and thereby kitten all the cracks in the hive. Propolis is used as a building material in the hive to prevent bacterial, viral and parasitic infections. Therefore, Propolis has been called “bee glue” and “bee penicilin” with its strong sterilizing action. It is used to kill germs in the hive and to protect the bee colony.
The main function of propolis for bees is to provide and maintain the antiseptic environment in the hive. Honeybees use propolis to protect larvae and themselves against microorganisms with its strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammmatory effects.
It also provides thermal insulation to the hive and protects it from cold weather conditions.
Propolis is in its original form a tough, slightly sticky resin mixture, which can vary from yellow to dark shades of brown. The main ingredient is resin, which can come from a variety of trees. Both the tree variety and the collection time have a great influence on the appearance as well as the taste of the bee resin.
Propolis has a characteristic smell and taste. It can range from sweetish to bitter.
Our body can not digest the prototype of propolis. The bee product needs to be extracted as our body can take up only 2% of the raw state of propolis.
