Propolis has been used in traditional medicines for thousands of years. As a folk remedy, bee propolis has been used in enhancing the body immune functions and thus supporting healthy breathing, and healthy skin; increasing stamina and physical strength before modern medicine developed. It’s thought to have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Today, propolis is an ingredient in many manufactured beauty and skin care products. The compound is still used for medical purposes. The National Institutes of Health rates propolis as "possibly effective" for treating cold sores, genital herpes, and post-surgery mouth pain.*
Propolis or bee glue is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. Propolis is used for small gaps (approximately 6 millimeters (0.24 in) or less), while larger spaces are usually filled with beeswax.
Propolis extract is beeswax removed.
Ingredients: Extract of Brazilian propolis.
The bee product appears to provide protection from some bacteria, viruses, and fungi. People typically take in some propolis when they eat honey. However, if you have an allergy to honey or bees, you will also have a reaction to products containing propolis. Propolis may also cause its own allergic reaction when used for a long period of time. Talk to your doctor before adding propolis to your treatment plan, especially if you have existing allergies or asthma.
