Originated from the Greek word, “PRO”, meaning “in defense of” and “POLIS” meaning “city”, bee propolis extract is now considered an important part of dietetics and a natural cure by the World Health Organization.
Propolis as Sterilizing Agent
Apart from that, scientist studying honey bees are also surprised when they found out that propolis is also used to coat dead intruders found in beehives.
If rodents like rats enter the home of these bees, it will be stung to death and coated with propolis. The reason is simple.
When we think of bees, honey and pollen are usually the first things that come to mind. However, there’s another powerful substance that bees play an integral role in, propolis. Derived from the Greek meaning “before the city,” signifying defense from external threat, propolis is a sticky resin collected by bees. Honeybees collect and metabolize the propolis, then line their hives with it for protection. It’s so effective, the interior of the bee hive has been found to be safer than most operating rooms!
The use of propolis has a 5000-year history. The Assyrians and the Greeks used propolis to help maintain good health. Forever Bee Propolis® supports the body’s natural defenses. To assure purity, Forever Bee Propolis® is gathered from pollution-free regions using specially designed bee propolis collectors. Forever Bee Propolis® is 100% natural with no added preservatives or artificial colors.
When we think of bees, honey and pollen are foremost in our thoughts. Yet another important substance, propolis, is a sticky resin secreted by trees. Honeybees collect and metabolize the propolis, then line their hives with it to protect the hive. It’s so effective, the interior of the bee hive is safer than most operating rooms. The name Propolis is derived from the Greek meaning “before the city,” signifying that propolis defended the entire community from external threat. Propolis has a 5000-year history.

Health Benefits of Bee Propolis
Although the fact that bee’s propolis has been used for thousands of years may be enough to convince most people about it’s health benefits, we dig scientific journals to satisfy some skeptics.
Let’s see how medical science conforms ancient wisdom.
Improving Immune System
Professor S. Scheller, the head of a team of four doctors at the Institute for Microbiology at the Medical Academy in Poland found that propolis is able to stimulate the immune system.
It stimulates the formation of antibodies to build body resistance to many diseases. It also helps the body in releasing substance against cellular deterioration.
He also concluded that other propolis health benefits may include improved physical, intellectual and sexual performance and makes injured tissue heal faster. The study also concluded that propolis is non toxic.
Another benefits of propolis is in treating second degree burns. Research showed that propolis cream gave about the same result as currently prescribed cream.
However, propolis cream reduce patient’s inflammation and lead to a faster healing.
Various studies have confirmed that propolis stimulates enzyme systems, cell metabolism, circulation, collagen formation and improved healing of burn wounds.
It is believe to be a result of a substance called arginine.
One isolated study had tested the benefit of propolis on women with infertility and endometriosis. The study indicated that consumption of 500mg of propolis twice daily resulted in pregnancy rate of 60% as opposed to 20% for women not given propolis.
It is still unclear how propolis would give this effect.
Potential Cancer Drug
A report published in the Cancer Research (Sep 15,93;53 1482-88) stated that caffeic acids in propolis might help prevent colon cancer. The article described how these caffeic acids were able to prevent the formation of pre cancerous tissues in rats after the animal were exposed to cancer causing chemicals.
Another study done in 1990 showed propolis chemicals to act against ovary cancer in hamster and sarcoma-type tumors in mice.
Propolis can also benefit patients suffering from inflammatory bowel problems like Chron’s disease and ulceration colitis.
In June 2001, Dr. Ralph Golan reported how ulceration colitis responded well to propolis therapy. This was reported in his article published in Townsend Letters For Doctors.
Another benefit of bee propolis is in dental care. Propolis mouthwash used after an oral surgery appears to shorten the healing time. A study done in 1991 showed that rats given propolis in their drinking water got less caries compared to other rats.
Another study done in 1986 proposed propolis as a valuable subsidiary treatment for gum infection and plague.
It is also used in dental surgery as natural and safe disinfectant.
Two studies done in 1986 and 1987 showed that another benefits of propolis is in protecting liver. It was shown to be effective in protecting liver against alcohol and tetrachloride.
Improve Antibiotic Effectiveness
Australian scientists, E.L Ghisalberti of the Department of Organic Chemistry at the University of Western Australia showed that propolis increases the effectiveness of penicillin or other antibiotics from 10 to 100 folds.
The combination of these drugs and propolis can cause the drug dosage to be trimmed down.
This discovery is hoped to help reduce the number of side effects associated with antibiotics and lower the over dependency on antibiotics by doctors.
Propolis offers some benefits to breeders by improving weight gain and reduce diarrhea in their animals.
A study done in 1987 showed that 5 ml of propolis solution given to milk-fed calves archived the above results.
Studies done to rabbits have also showed that propolis treated coccidiosis and eimeria. It also is beneficial in treating mastitis.
Other medical benefits of propolis
Studies done in rats and mice had shown that concentrated propolis given to the animals reduces blood pressure, produces sedative effect as well as protects the liver and stomach against tetrachloride and ulcers.
All these were achieved without any side effects.
