Do you know about the magic of propolis (aka bee glue)? Propolis has been used for thousands of years for its incredible antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties. The ancient Egyptians used it as an antiseptic to treat wounds and even during the mumification process. At the hive, this resin substance is used by bees to seal the inside of their hives and protect from microbial invaders.
The most fascinating aspect of propolis may be the way it is made. The honey bees collect sticky sap from nearby conifers (mostly spruce, fir and pine trees). They then transform the sap into propolis by chewing on it like bubble gum. The saliva from the bees adds the necessary enzymes to transform the sap into propolis. Just like honey and pollen, propolis constituents change based on the vegetation in the surrounding area. It is usually dark brown in color but can be found red, green, black or white depending on the sources of resin found around the hive.
Bee propolis is not only beneficial to honeybees but have numerous health perks for us too! Researchers have identified more than 300 compounds in propolis, the majority of these being polyphenols. Polyphenols are micro nutrients that occur in plants and are packed with antioxidants to help fight disease and damage within the body. Because of its naturally high antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, “bee glue” is used in a variety of ways to support the body's natural defenses. Some uses include assisting with upper respiratory tract infections, skin infections, sore throats and assist in the healing of minor wounds.
Propolis is the superstar ingredient in our Propolis DEFEND Honey Spray. This “immunity on the go” product is great for providing protection while traveling, during the change of seasons and as an everyday health booster. There is also promising research that propolis is an excellent natural way to keep allergies at bay. In our house, we keep one in a purse, one in the car, one in the kitchen and one in our bathroom so we never forget to take our propolis.
Thank you to the honeybees for creating another magical ingredient for the hive and the humans!
