Propolis is traditionally used in herbal medicine to help relieve sore throat and/or other infections and inflammations of the mouth and throat. A resinous natural substance produced by bees to protect and line the inner walls of their hives, it doubles as a powerful medicinal remedy for humans, who have used it for centuries, even millennia. The antioxidant and anti-infectious properties of propolis are directly related to biologically active compounds. These are known as polyphenols and flavonoids that have been shown by science to have a remarkable effect on bacteria, fungi and viruses. Surprisingly, propolis contains 500 times more flavonoids than in oranges, for example. Recent research indicates that propolis has a positive effect on the immune system and is in fact a powerful natural anti-inflammatory. This makes it ideal for upper respiratory tract infections. In addition, new research suggests that propolis may also help treat arthritis.
