Propolis is a glue-like substance collected by worker bees to seal and protect the beehive. It is the “immune system” of the beehive and it can support our immune system too. For over 40 years I thought propolis was propolis but I was wrong! Besides the common brown propolis there is also red and green propolis that come from Brazil and the global company providing the superior red, green and brown propolis is NaturaNectar.
What are the benefits of propolis? It has antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. This means propolis may be supportive in treating respiratory tract infections, ear infections and fighting the common cold. Studies show propolis may promote the healing of minor burns, prevent dental cavities, treat parasites, wart removal, shown to be more effective than a common drug for treating genital herpes and according to Dr. Seema Patel of San Diego State University, bee propolis is effective in treating 10 types of cancer. In addition, propolis was found to mitigate the side effects or toxicity of chemotherapy drugs.
