Propolis is a sticky substance that the beegirls collect from the sap on needle leaved trees or evergreens. Propolis has more than 300 compounds, majority of these are form of polyphenols. Those are antioxidants that fight disease and damage in the body. Propolis has natural powerful antibiotic, antiviral, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory properties – it shouldn’t be consumed while you are on antibiotics and you shouldn’t mix it into warm/hot drinks – as it is super sticky when heated. Researchers aren’t exactly sure why, but propolis appears to provide protection from some bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is a truly amazing product which we still know so little about! And yes, that is the one that gets stuck on your teeth, but worry not – in the good old days dentists used it, actually – they still do!
