Facts & Benefits:
Propolis is a powerful defense system produced by nature, and a powerful natural antioxidant providing protection from free radical damage. Bees use propolis to protect their hive from infection. For this reason, propolis is known as ‘nature’s best defense.’
Propolis is made by bees from the natural sap and resins found at the site of plant injury. This resin is particularly high in natural flavonoids, which are an essential part of the plant’s defense system. Honey bees gather the flavonoid-rich resin, and mix in beeswax and enzymes, to create Propolis.
Then they use the Propolis to seal and protect their hive against viral, bacterial and fungal infections. Propolis contains high levels of antioxidants for cellular support. Propolis provides effective immune support for maintaining everyday wellness
