Propolis, generally referred to as ‘bee glue,’ is a natural resinous substance. Bees collect resin from the bark and buds of trees, and then they process it by mixing wax, pollen, salivary secretions, and collected natural resins to form propolis. The bees utilize this dark sticky substance to fill up any cracks and smooth the inner layer of the hive, sealing and protecting it from infection, fungal growth, and bacteria. Additionally, they smear Propolis around the hive entrance to strengthen the hive and protect it from intruders.
A complex natural substance, Propolis contains phytochemicals, flavonoids, organic acids, vitamins, and minerals. It comprises 50% resin & balsam, 30% wax, 10% essential oils, 5% pollen, and 5% organic matter. Flavonoids, one of the main groups of phenolic compounds in Propolis, influence its bioactivity.
Beekeepers extract excess Propolis from the beehive and apply a cold treatment process to make the substance suitable for topical use and human consumption.
Bee products have been utilized for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Egypt and Greece. Healing properties have been mentioned in religious texts such as the bible, Veda, and the Quran.
The name ‘Propolis’ originates from the ancient Greek language, with ‘Pro’ meaning before or in front, and ‘polis’ meaning city. Propolis translates to ‘in front of the city,’ symbolizing its role in defending the hive.
In western complementary medicine, Propolis is traditionally used to support and maintain a healthy immune system. It possesses antimicrobial characteristics and antioxidant activity, aiding in the fight against free radicals.
