NIB Spotlight Propolis

January 1, 2020

Nature’s Ingredient Benefit (NIB) Spotlight this month is focused on Propolis.


Propolis a gift from the bees Alise Body Care.


Propolis is a resinous substance that bees collect from trees and plants. Bees use it as a natural antibiotic to protect their hive and as defense against disease in the hive. They do this by using it as a seal over foreign matter so that it does not pollute the hive. Propolis is made up of waxes, resins, fatty acids and amino acids.  Hundreds of chemical properties have been identified in Propolis and these properties differ from hive to hive as well as with the environment the bees live in and the time of day the propolis was collected.


Propolis has long been used as a natural remedy and it is thought that it’s the numerous flavonoids which it contains that account for its wound healing benefits. Some studies suggest that it may be used against bacteria and viruses and other microorganisms when applied to infected areas topically.


Anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory.  When taken orally, some studies have shown it is an immune system booster due to its high levels of B-vitamin complex and notable quantities of vitamin C, E, and beta-carotene.

Consumable? Yes, typically in capsule form.
