Propolis is a natural
medicine that bees make to disinfect
the beehive. They collect plant resins
and mix it with their own enzymes to
create this natural superdrug. Because
of its high amount active compounds
it has a broad spectrum usage with
anitbiotic, antiseptic, antiviral and
Malaika Honey Propolis comes from a
pristine natural environment
in Uganda, Africa. The bees
collect nectars from a rich
natural environment that is
free from toxins and so we
are harvesting a clean lead
The bees not only use propolis as a building material and structural defence mechanism but their health is maintained as a result of its immune system enhancing properties. Propolis forms the bees’ external immune defence system, making the beehive one of the most sterile environments known to nature.
The word Propolis is believed to have been coined by Aristotle who identified how propolis was used to protect and defend the hive. Propolis(from the Greek) means ‘Before the City’ or ‘Defender of the City’.
Modern scientific studies indicate that those who take propolis regularly escape winter colds and sore throats and seem to develop a natural immunity to common viruses, including the various strains of flu. In animal studies the phenomena of immune boosting is due to synergistic immunomodulatory effect of the components of Propolis, simultaneously increasing immune system function while directly inhibiting the pathogens.
The immune system is supported and strengthened by the ingestion of propolis. Propolis has also been proven effective against strains of bacteria that resist chemical antibiotics probably due to its complexity.
Because of Propolis’ large number of properties the disorders and diseases it can help treat is large. Cancer, swelling of the throat, gout, open wounds, sinus congestion, colds, influenza, bronchitis, gastritis, periodontal disease, intestinal infections, ulcers, eczema eruptions, pneumonia, arthritis, lung disease, stomach virus, headaches, bile infections, sclerosis, circulation deficiencies, warts, conjunctivitis, and hoarseness. Propolis helps regulate cytokines(the immune system’s messengers) and therefore stimulates the natural resistance of the body. But can also control allergies caused by an overactive immune system. Propolis may be used by everyone, sick or healthy, as a means of protection against micro organisms. Propolis cures many diseases because it is a special natural substance with strong effect. Use it as part of your daily program of supplementation. It has helped the bee society survive and thrive for over 45 million years. Just think what it could do for you.
