0 comment

Everyone knows that bees make honey, but do you know that bees can make more than just honey? Bees are so smart that they can make even more like pollen, royal jelly, propolis, and more. In this video, I will share more about bee propolis. Propolis or “bee glue” is created by the bees out of the resins and sap along with various plants and trees. The purpose of propolis is to seal and protect the beehive from intruders, viruses, rain, winds, and snow. During ancient times, people used propolis for its medicinal properties. Like Greeks used it to treat abscesses, Assyrians used it to heal wounds and tumors to fight infections, while Egyptians used it to embalm mummies.

While propolis has many uses for bees, it is also highly beneficial for humans. Propolis extract has become a key natural ingredient for pharmaceutical and food supplement products because it contains many bioactive compounds that are very beneficial for health. Research shows that propolis has many healing properties such as antimicrobial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor qualities. Bee propolis is very effective to wound healing, cold sores, inflammation, diabetes, swelling, genital herpes, influenza, burns, and ulcers. Other than that, propolis also stimulates the immune system and prevents tooth decay.

Bee propolis is safe to use but it may be not suitable for everyone. For example, some propolis products might be contaminated with bee byproducts, so please use them with caution if you have allergies. Also, propolis might slow down blood clotting. For those people with bleeding disorders or those who will have surgery, if you take propolis it will increase the risk of bleeding.

Bee propolis comes in different forms such as creams, ointments, lotions, tablets, liquid extracts, and capsules. Propolis can be purchased in pharmacies, official online stores, or health food stores.
