Bee has been living on Earth for more than 60 million years. However, scientist discovered that bee hive doesn't contain any bacteria and virus.
When bee is collecting honey, it is exposed to various germs among the plants. But once it returns to its hive, some special substance seems to wipe out all the germs on its body.
Later, scientist found out that bee hive is internally covered by a waxy substance called Propolis, making it an almost sterile environment. And Propolis contains natural antibiotic substances which instantly kill infectious germs that invaded bee hive.
What is Propolis?
Propolis is made from fluid collected from tree buds or bark, mixed with enzymes in bee saliva. Bee uses it to glue any crack in bee hive and to cover the compartment where queen bee lays her eggs.
Propolis is an important natural antibiotic substance in bee hive which maintains a sterile condition. With 149 types of antioxidant, Propolis can preserve dead bee and prevent the decaying of dead foreign insect.
The bee will wrap these dead bodies with Propolis and turn it into a mummy. This ensures their hive is clean and sterile. This shows that Propolis contains substances that have strong anti-bacteria and anti-virus functions.
Propolis benefits on your body
White blood cell is the backbone of human immune system. It is divided into:
Macrophages - responsible for defense, it can swallow up bacteria, virus and other foreign substances.
Lymphocytes - produces interleukin and interferon, which are responsible for attacking specific virus.
Propolis contains high amount of flavonoids and active ingredients. It can stimulate immune cells to produce interleukin and interferon which enhance your immune system.
Other Propolis benefits includes:
- reduce thrombosis, improve blood circulation blockage
- regulate insulin balance
- strengthen liver for detoxification

Propolis is getting more popular worldwide due to its high medicinal values. Currently there are 3 types of Propolis supplement with different extraction method.
Propolis extracted in capsule form gives the least health benefits. You're advised not to take it.
Propolis from water extract has an advantage of being very economical to produce. From raw Propolis to completed Propolis extract, it takes around 2 months only. Therefore its price is lower. But its effectiveness is also much lower.
Drop this type of Propolis extract into a glass of water and you can see it sinks to the bottom immediately. It often results in muddy water. The waxy substance may stick to the cup and spoon. Some even produces unwanted substance floating around in the water.
It takes 2 to 3 years to complete the alcohol extraction of Propolis. The process is long and not economical. Therefore, you can hardly find any Propolis from alcohol extract in the market.
However, the resulting Propolis extract is much purer with higher concentration of beneficial active substances. When you open up the Propolis bottle, another person can even smell it across the room.
Drop this type of Propolis extract into a cup of water and you can see it spreads evenly with greenish yellow color. Due to its high purity, it is lighter than water. So it only floats on top of the water. The resulting water mixture doesn't contain any unwanted floating substance at all.
