Propolis is a type of antimicrobial glue that bees make from the resins of trees. It is rich in nutrients, such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, beta-carotene, bioflavonoids, and vitamins B1 and B2. It is also a concentrated source of antioxidants called bioflavonoids, which are known for strengthening capillary walls and connective tissue, and enhancing vitamin C absorption. It is traditionally used in herbal medicine to help relieve minor inflammations and lesions on mucous membranes, such as canker sores. Propolis is a very safe ingredient with no side effects or interactions. Unlike many antibiotics, it does not destroy the good bacteria living in the digestive tract.
Natural Factors Bee Propolis is part of the Enriching Bee Factors series. It comes from the northern apiaries where trees produce the highest quality resins. Every 500 mg capsule contains a 2:1 extract of 100% bee propolis and undergoes strict quality control testing to guarantee that it is free from contaminants. Its antibacterial and immune-supporting properties provide a natural form of protection in our world of superbugs, increasing pollution, and compromised health.
