Legend has it that Propolis was a gift from the gods, a miracle substance for use in healing. Indeed the powers of Propolis have demonstrated antibiotic, antihistamine, antifungal and antiviral properties. The ancient Egyptians saw Propolis as a source of eternal health and long life. They knew Propolis revitalizes and prevents decomposition. The Pharaohs of Egypt knew thousands of years ago what "modern science" is only now re-discovering: that Propolis is an extremely versatile healing agent.
Hippocrates (400-377 BC) the founder of western medicine, greatly respected Propolis, prescribing it to heal sores and ulcers, both external and internal.
Historically, people have used Propolis Antiseptic Salve for relief of blisters, boils, chapped hands, cracked feet, hives, insect bites, rashes, warts, poison ivy, chicken pox (to stop itching), rashes around the groin area, jock itch, dry skin, foot blisters (because it’s heavier than most salves and doesn’t melt and dissipate from the heat of running) plus many others.
Propolis is an All-Natural supplement made by honeybees. A resinous substance, which is gathered by honeybees from deciduous tree bark and leaves, is mixed with nectar, wax, pollen and beebread to form Propolis. Propolis serves as a superior source of Bioflavonoids, Amino acids, and as an infection protectant, an anti-inflammatory and a preventive supplement.
Propolis functions as the immune system of the beehive. Propolis is a natural substance produced by honeybees to strengthen and protect their hive from bacterial mold and viruses. Propolis contains properties that increase and strengthen our body’s natural resistance to disease by stimulating our body’s immune system.
