Propolis is a very sticky substance the bees make from tree and plant resins, adding their own wax. The bees use it to protect the health of the colony, to protect their hive from disease, including the effects of intruders (mice and other critters have been found in hives, coated with propolis to protect the bees from disease). The compounds in propolis provide immune defense and antioxidant properties. Studies are showing propolis as a potential therapeutic and preventive agent, as an antimicrobial, wound healer, cardio-protector and optimizer of neural function (ncbi.nim.nih.gov “Evidence on the Health Benefits of Supplemental Propolis).
