With another cold, damp winter in full swing, many of our customers are turning to our Propolis supplement to help them get through the flu season. Used for centuries as a natural antibacterial, propolis is full of active compounds that help protect the body in times of low resistance. For those who are new to propolis, we've compiled some quick snippets of information for you below.
What is Propolis?
Propolis is a resinous mixture that is formed when bees mix beeswax with exudate gathered from botanical sources such as tree buds and sap flows. Propolis has been shown to contain over 300 active compounds which come together as "natures healing ingredient" to fight against a whole manner of infections and diseases.
How can Propolis help me?
Propolis has long been lauded for its ability to strengthen the immune system and is a popular winter supplement. With daily use, propolis is an excellent extract to help shorten the duration of the common cold. The antimicrobial compounds in propolis help to actively suppress harmful bacteria.
Recent research has also shown that propolis can help combat ear infections, support the healing of fungal nail infections and can be used as a natural alternative to fluoride.
