All-Natural Certified Organic Propolis Extract Capsules
For those who don't love the strong flavour of propolis but want all the wonderful benefits, these capsules provide a quick and easy way to get all the goodness of raw propolis into your diet.
These capsules contain highly concentrated organic propolis extract (20kg raw organic propolis are used to obtain 1kg of extract).
Propolis (bee glue) is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce by mixing their own enzymes and beeswax with sap and resin gathered from tree buds, sap flows, or other sources. Propolis is believed to be antibacterial, prevent diseases and parasites from entering the hive and to inhibit fungal growth.
The composition of propolis varies from hive to hive and season to season. Normally, it is dark brown in colour. "Typical" northern temperate propolis has approximately 150 constituents, primarily resins and vegetable balsams (50%), waxes (30%), essential oils (10%), and pollen (5%). Propolis also contains persistent lipophilic acaricides, a natural pesticide that deters mite infestations. Other flavonoids commonly present include galangin and pinocembrin.
Propolis is being researched for the potential development of new drugs focusing on a variety of its properties, including those for possible immunomodulatory, anti-diabetic and anti-ulcer applications.
