Bee Propolis Cream
Propolis is a mixture of various amounts of beeswax and resins collected by the honeybees from plants, particularly from flowers and leaf buds. Since it is difficult to observe bees on their foraging trips the exact sources of the resins are usually not known.
Bees have been observed scraping the protective resins of flower and leaf buds with their mandibles and then carrying them to the hive like pollen pellets on their hind legs. It can be assumed that in the process of collecting and modelling the resins, they are mixed with some saliva and other secretions of the bees as well as with wax.
Please note our propolis is from the apis trigona specie of bees. Utmost care is undertaken to ensure that no bees were harmed while harvesting the propolis. Harvesting the propolis is one important activity in beekeeping to ensure there is enough room for the food and the brood.
Propolis is derived from the Greek word, "PRO" meaning "in defense" and "POLIS" meaning "city". It is descriptive of the protection propolis provides the bee hive. It is a dark sticky substance which the bees collect and use because of its antibacterial and antiviral properties. In addition, it has antifungal properties that help inhibit infections. Propolis contains 21 different flavonoids and antioxidants to help control free radicals.
It is high in B-complex vitamins and contains vitamins C, E, and provitamin A. It is rich in amino acids, fats and minerals such as zinc, manganese, copper and iron.
