What is Propolis?
Mighty little worker bees from bee hives trek out into fields to collect nutritious, resinous substances from leaf buds, twigs and tree bark, then carry them back to the hive. Next, they process them with their enzymes to create a dark, sticky, highly nutritious resin called propolis, often referred to as “bee’s glue.” Propolis contains approximately 55% resins and balsams, 30% bee’s wax, 10% etheric oils and 5% pollen, all highly nutritious.
Propolis is derived from the Greek word, “pro,” meaning “in defense of” and “polis,” meaning “city.” Together, the meaning, “in defense of the city,” refers to the defense of the bee hive. The main use of propolis by bees is to protect their hive from disease and to ward off outside invaders, such as ants. The bees coat every inch of the outside walls of their honeycombs with a thin layer of propolis to sterilize the comb, thus keeping the hive free of infection. Although the hive is an enclosed, moist environment, a natural breeding ground for infection, the propolis keeps the hive clear of bacteria, mold and mildew. The bees also use propolis to seal holes and gaps to prevent cold and rain from entering the hive.
Ancient Healer, Modern Wonder
Bee propolis has been used effectively for thousands of years in folk medicine. This broad-spectrum remedy from ancient times has been used effectively for a wide range of problems. Today, worldwide research by experts in longevity and nutrition have made amazing discoveries about this totally unique and powerful substance, propolis, that some claim to be a ‘total natural healer’. Propolis is a major breakthrough in the quest for a nontoxic, powerful, all-encompassing healer that can assist the body in fighting a broad spectrum of infectious agents (including viral, bacterial and fungal infections), soothe the skin (including many types of skin conditions such as eczema), heal ulcers and improve the overall immune response.
Strong Anti-infective Properties
Numerous research studies on propolis show its ability to act as a powerful natural antibiotic without side effects that can help the body overcome many time-old problems, ranging from the common cold to arthritis to radiation injury. In analyzing propolis, researchers have found that in addition to its dramatic healing properties; it is also a highly nutritious total Super Food.
An Ancient Biblical Remedy
The Hebrew word for propolis is “tzori,” and its therapeutic properties are mentioned throughout the Old Testament in the Bible. Records from 12th century Europe describe many medical preparations using propolis for treating many different conditions, from mouth and throat infections to dental cavities.
Broad-Spectrum, Healing Properties
However, it wasn’t until the 1950s that scientists, with the help of new analytical techniques, began to isolate the myriads of components in propolis and discovered their stunning ability to provide a wide array of healing effects, including remarkable anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-infective and antioxidant properties.
Potent, Anti-Cancer Effects
Worldwide research has shown that propolis has strong anti-cancer and immunomodulatory effects. Special phytonutrients in propolis, such as CAPE (caffeic acid phenethyl ester) and Propolin C, have significant cytotoxic effects and can induce apoptosis (i.e. break down cancer cells) in cancerous tumors, including skin cancer (melanoma), lung tumors, oral cancers, brain tumors and other cancer cell lines. One study showed that CAPE from propolis started destroying glioma cells in brain tumors within 24 hours.
Liver Protection and Healing
Research demonstrates that quinic acid derivatives naturally present in propolis have strong liver-protective effects and promote healing of toxic liver cells. Propolis has also been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Proven Anti-Plaque and Anti-Cavity Effect
According to recent research published the Caries Research Journal (2000), propolis helps prevent the formation of dental plaque. This effect appears to stem from its ability to inhibit the activity of certain enzymes which synthesize glucans from sucrose that feed tooth-dissolving bacteria. Propolis effectively inhibited the activity of these enzymes up to 95%. They also noted that the active compound in propolis responsible for this anti-plaque effect, is still unknown and recommended further research to identify it. For dental health, propolis can be taken internally or mixed into a solution and rubbed into the gums.
What Is In Propolis?
Analysis of propolis shows that it contains at least 150 complex compounds, including many different bioflavonoids known for their strong, broad-spectrum, anti-infective properties. Propolis also contains a small of amount of a whole array of natural vitamins, including vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, E, H, P, folic acid, nicotinic acid as well as many macro and trace minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, silicon, cobalt, vanadium and strontium. Propolis contains an abundance of highly active phytonutrients, such as dihydroflavonoids, which aid the body in absorbing vitamin C. Phenolic compounds, including many flavonoids, have been found in propolis, including CAPE (caffeic acid phenethyl ester), Propolin C, galangin, kaempferol, quercetin, pinocembrin, pinostrobin and pinobanksin. Other phenolics identified include quinic acid, ferulic acid, caffeic acid, cinnamic alcohol, cinnamic acid and vanillin.
The Natural Antibiotic
Because of its strong, anti-infective activity, propolis has often been called a “natural antibiotic.” Many studies show its strong inhibitory effect on a wide variety of pathogenic organisms. Studies have shown propolis to be effective against many types of infectious bacteria, including Bacillus subtilis, Helicobacter pylori, Staphylococcus aureus (and other staph species), MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), Streptococcus (many species, including Streptococcus sobrinus, mutans and cricetus which cause dental caries), Mycobacterium tuberculosis (which causes tuberculosis), Streptomyces, Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Giardia intestinalis, Bacteroides nodous, Klebsiella pneumoniae and many others. Propolis has been shown to be effective against many types of fungi, including Candida albicans, Aspergillus niger, Botrytis cinerea and Ascosphaera apis. Propolis has shown excellent results against viruses, such as herpes, influenza (in mice), Newcastle disease and the potato virus.
