How Does This Work?

Honeybees collect resins from shrubs, trees and return to their hives to blend it with pollen, saliva, and beeswax to produce propolis. So, propolis is a mixture of 30% beeswax, 50% resins, and 20% saliva, pollen, oils, and enzymes. An interesting fact is that bees use it inside the hive for antibacterial and structural purposes. While the beeswax is utilized for major structural problems in the hive, propolis is helpful for making smaller repairs.

Propolis exhibits antibacterial, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-cancer, and antioxidant properties. This is due to the presence of amino acids, polyphenols, flavonoids, diterpenic acids, caffeic acids in them.
