Not only is propolis bee glue
(see Michalak's write-up), but according to the various 'health food' manufacturers it has almost magical properties as a product which stimulates the immune system. It is said to be provide protection against respiratory infections
and certain ulcers
- apparently it stimulates phagocytosis
and has natural antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Propolis is rich in antioxidants especially bioflavinoids. It contains 16 amino acids, 14 of the 15 minerals required by man (not sulphur), and all the vitamins except Vitamin K.
If taken with royal jelly and honey it's a wonder that we are not immortal!
Proplis is available in capsule form from a health shop near you.
