Q1 What is Propolis?
A1 Propolis – sometimes called “bee glue” – is a resinous
substance that honeybees source from the bark and leaf buds
of trees such as poplars and evergreen conifers. Bees mix this
substance with their natural wax and saliva to form a kind of
sealant that they use to repair cracks in their hives.
The word “propolis” is thought to have been fi rst used by the
Ancient Greek philosopher Artistotle after he noticed bees
using it to protect their hives. It is a combination of the Greek
words “Pro” (meaning before) and “polis” (meaning city).
Propolis itself appears in ancient texts about herbal medicine
by Greek, Roman and Egyptian authors.
Q2 What is your immune system, and how does it affect health
A2 Your “immune system” is actually not a single system, but
a complex network of cells, organs and processes that are
designed to support your health. It does this by identifying
and fi ghting against the micro-organisms that threaten your
wellbeing. A strong, healthy immune system will assist in the
maintenance of your general wellbeing.
Your immune system functions best when you are eating
well, getting enough sleep, and generally living a healthy life.
However, factors like a poor diet, ongoing stress, insuffi cient
sleep and various environmental pollutants can weaken it.
Q3 How does Propolis support immunity and wellbeing?
A3 The exact chemical composition of propolis can vary depending
on where it is sourced, and the species of trees from which it
has been collected.
However, researchers have identifi ed at least 180 different
compounds that are present in propolis sourced from a range
of different origins. These compounds include vitamins,
minerals and antioxidants which help to maintain general
wellbeing. Propolis has also traditionally been used in Western
complimentary medicine to support the body’s immune
