Propolis

Propolis is a resinous mixture which honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. Propolis is used for small gaps (approximately 6 millimeters (0.2 in) or less), while larger spaces are usually filled with beeswax.

Medical Uses

Natural medicine practitioners use propolis for the relief of various conditions, including inflammations, viral diseases, ulcers, superficial burns and scalds.

Propolis is believed to promote heart health, strengthen the immune system and to reduce the chance of cataracts. Old beekeepers recommended a piece of propolis kept in the mouth as a remedy for a sore throat. Though claims have been made for its use in treating allergies, propolis may cause severe allergic reactions if the user is sensitive to bees or bee products.

As an Antimicrobial

Depending upon its composition, propolis may show powerful local antibiotic and antifungal properties.

As an Emollient

Studies indicate that it may be effective in treating skin burns.

As an Immunomodulator

Propolis exhibits immunomodulatory effects.

As a Dental Anti-plaque Agent

Propolis is a subject of recent dentistry research, since there is some evidence that propolis may actively protect against caries and other forms of oral disease, due to its antimicrobial properties. Propolis can also be used to treat canker sores. Its use in canal debridement for endodontic procedures has been explored in Brazil.
