Pure raw propolis, as collected by bees. Propolis from the Greek pro which means “in front” and polis which means “city” this word figuratively means “protector of the city”, in relation to the fact that this substance has often been noticed and accumulated around the entrance of the hive, which it is precisely the city of bees, to reduce the size and therefore allow an easier defense of the colony from predators and the harshness of the climate. Propolis is a resinous, gummy and balsamic substance composed of 50% balms and resins, 25% wax, 10% volatile essential oils, 5% pollen, another 5% organic material and natural pigments of the type flavonoids, produced by plants, such as poplar, birch, alder, hornbeam, elm, chestnut, horse chestnut, plane tree, cherry, oak, willow, pine and fir, to coat and protect the flower buds, the vegetative apexes and the bark. The bees collect this substance from the buds, work it with their jaws kneading it with wax and saliva and bring it to the hive in small quantities in their hind legs. Raw propolis is a natural antibiotic, and its medicinal properties are: anesthetic, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, antioxidant, healing, detoxifying, immunoregulatory and immunostimulant. It is recommended to fight:

  • seasonal sicknesses
  • flu (cold, sore throat)
  • inflammation of the oral cavity (toothache, gingivitis)

To be taken, it must be dissolved in the mouth, without chewing because it tends to stick to the teeth, for about 20-30 minutes, until completely absorbed. It is recommended to take a small dose (up to a maximum of 3 grams per day for a week), after main meals.
