Propolis is a natural product that bees produce from the resin of certain plants and use as a sealant to close up gaps in the beehive. Propolis also possesses antiseptic properties that can help keep the beehive clean; there are no known microorganisms that can survive inside a beehive. The term propolis comes from the Greek 'pro', meaning before, and 'polis', meaning city. Beekeepers often refer to this substance as bee glue.
Propolis contains polyphenols that come from flowers, leaves, peels and barks. Plants produce these polyphenols as protection against bacteria, fungi, UV radiation and pests. Our organic propolis extract contains at least 12% polyphenols
