What is Propolis?

Propolis is a sticky resin made by bees from beeswax, pollen, sap and phytochemicals collected from plants.

Bees use the propolis to line the hive entrance and internal cells. The powerful antiseptic and antibacterial properties of propolis protect the hive from external invaders and prevent viral, bacterial or pathogenic outbreaks inside.

This provides a safe haven for the Queen Bee to lay her many eggs, and a hygienic environment for young bees to grow and worker bees to live and thrive.

The sticky propolis helps trap unsuspecting critters that breach the hive entrance, encasing them in a waxy resin to prevent bacterial spread as they decompose. Propolis is the bees' ultimate protection. It helps keep the entire population and the hive itself, alive, safe and thriving. 


So what's in propolis?

Propolis is 100% naturally occurring.
Its composition is a blend of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients rarely seen in a single compound.

Analyses of raw propolis show it contains at least 150 bioactive elements. These include many types of phytonutrients we commonly call antioxidants and bioflavonoids. Propolis as a compound also contains varying amounts of amino acids, fatty acids and a range of vitamins including B Complex Vitamins as well as Vitamins A, E, C and D. Trace minerals found in propolis include iron, copper, zinc, manganese, magnesium, silicon, calcium and more.
