What is Propolis?
Propolis is created by the bees from natural sap and resins found on trees. Trees produce these resins at the site of a plant injury and on new shoots. The bees collect the resin and carry it back to the hive where they mix beeswax and enzymes to make Propolis.
What are the benefits of Propolis?
Propolis contains high levels of active bioflavonoids, with well-known antioxidant properties. Propolis helps to support and maintain a healthy immune system.
Should I take Propolis liquids, capsules or tablets? Which is best?
The strength of dose is the same, so it is more a question of suitability and personal preference. We recommend Propolis Tincture for teeth, gum and external use; Propolis Extract (alcohol free), Tablets and Capsules to be taken orally for internal use.
How should I take the various Propolis products?
Propolis Capsules should be swallowed with water. Propolis Tablets can be chewed before swallowing. Propolis Extract can be dropped directly into the back of the mouth and throat, or mixed in water, milk, and juice. Propolis Tincture should be applied directly by the dropper onto the desired area.
Are there any other things I should know before choosing the most appropriate Propolis product?
Vegetarians should choose the Propolis Tablets rather than Propolis Capsules due to the bovine gelatin in the capsule.
