What is propolis?
Bees make propolis, which they use to glue the hive material, by mixing beeswax and other secretions with resins from conifer and poplar buds. These resins have natural germicidal properties. For centuries, people have used propolis for wounds and as a remedy for diseases ranging from acne to cancer, osteoporosis, itching and tuberculosis. Today, propolis is used in the production of cosmetics, creams, lozenges. Numerous studies have tested its effectiveness in humans and animals as a treatment for burns, minor wounds, infections, inflammatory diseases and toothache. Propolis has antibiotic and antiseptic properties and can have antiviral and anti-inflammatory effects.
What is so special about Brazilian green propolis?
The type of propolis depends on its botanical origin and the type of bees that produce it. The forests of Minas Gerais in Brazil are densely populated with rosemary (Baccharis dracunculifolia) and eucalyptus trees from which high-quality green propolis can be produced. Brazilian green propolis is collected from unexpanded leaf buds of the plant Baccharis dracunculifolia by an African bee. Only this species of bee can produce Brazilian green propolis with concentrated artepilin C, a powerful ingredient not found in propolis from other regions. Artepilin C has strong antibacterial properties and successfully solves the problem of red and sore throat, canker sores and inflamed gums.
