Propolis has long been known to have a natural antibacterial effect. Propolis is a rich source of flavonoids, minerals, vitamins C, E, provitamin A, and B-complex. There is also a selection of amino acids, fats, trace minerals and bioflavonoids. In the congested beehive, propolis and royal jelly employ their antibiotic, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties to inhibit undesirable bacteria and promote helpful bacteria.
Flavonoids facilitate growth and health by doing a number of things such as stimulating hair to grow, blood to circulate, bile to be secreted and urine to be passed. Not only are flavonoids great antibacterial agents, they are also used to treat ulcers, arthritis and flu symptoms. Flavonoids can also be successful at treating more chronic diseases and health problems like stress and joint stiffness.

Customer Review:Date: 01/28/2011 Each member of my family takes 10-15 drops of Propolis every morning during the flu season to keep our immune systems strong. We recently took this supplement to our homeopathic doctor who tested its effectiveness through muscle testing. We were pleased to find that all of our bodies needed propolis! And it tastes great!
