Let us discuss some of the most significant contributors to the world as we know it. No, I'm not referring to Jeff Bezos nor the inventor of electricity, I’m referring to bees.
Those flying, buzzing insects that most people are afraid of! They’re known for their honey and all but hey, did you know that they also create a myriad of compounds that can naturally improve our health and well-being?
From honey, bee pollen, and royal jelly, there’s no lie that these substances have magical benefits. But today, we'll concentrate on a less well-known but equally, if not more spectacular, bee product: Propolis.👀
You’re probably wondering what it is and how we can benefit from it so let me nag you a little about it.
What is Propolis?
A typical hive can house up to 60,000 bees, and because of this congested environment, bees must be extremely cautious to protect their colony from infection! Intelligent bees began producing an antibacterial material that they use to "paint" the hive, protecting it from outside pathogens.
They didn't stop there, though!🚀
In order to ensure and maximize the protection, smarty bees started creating “Propolis” as a protective door in the entrance to their hives, serving as a method of cleansing each bee that enters of any microbes it may have come in contact! Long ago, beekeepers noticed this waxy accumulation and appropriately named it PROPOLIS. PRO (in support of) and POLIS (city)
These hard-working bees combine plant resins with beeswax and enzymes from their saliva to create propolis! And it is frequently referred to as "nature's penicillin" because of its potent antibacterial properties.
And not all propolis are the same, they are surely all great but there’s the Green Brazilian one is the best! This propolis is derived mainly from alecrim, a relative of Rosemary, and contains remarkably high cinnamic acid derivatives that enhance its antioxidant effects👆🏻
So you are wondering why it is so important?
Hundreds of active compounds have been identified in propolis!
Propolis contains NEARLY ALL of the known vitamins (except Vitamin K), and 13 of the 14 minerals required by the human body (lacking in sulfur). It also contains polyphenols, 16 amino acids AND 500 more bioflavonoids than are found in oranges!🤓
Quite cool nah? Like imagine all these benefits only in one pill:
- Wound healing
- Helps fight herpes
- improves fertility & helps women with Endometriosis
- Manage diabetes
- Anti-inflammatory support
Well, I just can’t say but that propolis is really an all-natural fighter! It is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial & anti-parasitic substance and that’s just too good to be true.
Where can you find Propolis?
Surely, you won’t go and catch a beehive and extract it…Unless you are willing to😅

- Astaxanthin: A red carotenoid extracted from Haematococcus seaweed. It is one of the most complete natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory.
