Bee Immune with BeeVital!
23 October 2023
As winter approaches we shine a light on propolis, an amazing immune-booster.
As the autumn evenings draw in and we start to feel a crisp chill in the air, we also know that winter is approaching, with its share of coughs, colds and other viruses.
At BeeVital, we know how important it is to look after your health and your immune system, and that’s why, this season, we’d like to shine a light on propolis, an amazing natural substance produced by honeybees, that helps to support and boost our body’s immune system.
What is Propolis?
Honeybees gather resins from plants and trees and process it, with wax and enzymes into propolis, a sticky substance which they use to help keep the hive or colony free from infection. The name propolis was first coined by Aristotle and comes from the Greek words Pro (meaning defender of) and Polis (meaning city), and so propolis literally means defender of the city. Due to its antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties, propolis acts as the bees’ immune defence mechanism. A great deal of research has shown that propolis is beneficial to humans too, as it supports our immune systems to deal with bacteria, viruses, fungal infections and also inflammation.
At BeeVital we’re Passionate about Propolis!
