Why Propolis ‘Bee Glue’ is amazing!

By Aimee Coates

Is there anything bees can’t do? At Honeyderm, we’re always praising the humble bee. But do you know just how amazing Propolis aka ‘bee glue’ is for our health? 

What is Propolis?
Propolis is a sticky substance produced by bees from different plant sources. Derived from the Greek ‘pro’ in defense of and ‘polis’ of the city, it protects the colony from harmful microbes, fungi, and mold. Bees use this ‘bee glue’ to block up any holes and gaps in their hive, keeping the hive clean and sterile.

What can it be used for?
Not only does Propolis keep the hive free of bacteria, it’s also beneficial to human health. It’s renowned for its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-oxidant, and anti-fungal properties. Propolis helps fight a range of viruses and shows activity in supporting treatment of: 

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Wounds
  • Diabetes
  • Cold sores
  • Cancer

Studies show that propolis can make antibiotics more effective too. It's made up of over 300 different chemical compounds that protect both the bees and us!

How to take propolis
You can apply propolis to the skin in lotion form or take it orally as liquid or tablet.

We’ve got a range of products which contain propolis. Try our Dermatonic™ W wrinkle cream which reduces the appearances of wrinkles and puffiness or our amazing Hairback treatment which supports a variety of scalp problems such as baldness, dandruff and psoriasis.
