This is why, after several tests, we have found the right balance between the typical taste of the natural "resin" of propolis and a mix of sweet hints of fruit with the added goodness of honey!
The aromas of fruit are all of natural origin and mitigate the overpowering taste of balsamic resin typical of propolis.
Propolea does not contain colorants:
its light color is given by the basic ingredient that is honey.
Propolis is an example of how nature offers us excellent remedies to take care of our health in a natural way.
The name Propolis comes from the Greek: pro = front, polis = city, or "before the city", to indicate the use that bees make of it.
In fact it is used by these laborious and tireless hymenopterans to repair the hive from unwanted draughts of light and air, as well as from the intrusion of small predators.
Another use made by the bees of propolis is to cover the inner walls of the hive and the cells of the honeycombs with the aim of making the environment aseptic and prepare it for laying eggs.
It is no coincidence that Propolis is celebrated by traditional and modern medicine, precisely for its properties of defense of the body from the attack of pathogens and for its antiseptic and disinfectant capacity.
Propolis is now considered a surprising natural product that owes its peculiarity to the wealth of active ingredients it contains within it.
Thanks to numerous clinical and laboratory studies, its therapeutic power and in particular its antimicrobial action are mainly attributed to the flavonoid fraction.
The flavonoids are vegetable pigments that are found in large quantities on the buds and resin of plants, where they play a protective role.
Among these compounds, two molecules seem to be the main responsible for the antimicrobial properties of Propolis.
Galangine and Pinocembrin.
However, the composition of Propolis is a very variable parameter, which depends on the type of vegetation and seasons.
MAIN CONSTITUTIONS OF PROPOLES
50% resins and conditioners (containing flavonoids and phenolic acids)
30% wax (consisting of fatty acids, oxy-acids and lactones)
10% essential oils,
5% pollen and the remaining 5% from other organic compounds including minerals and vitamins (in particular B vitamins, vitamin C and E).
Propolis is a product that bees obtain by foraging, i.e. collecting, the resins from the buds or bark of different trees
such as poplars, birches, firs, pines, alders, oaks, etc..Harvesting is usually done during the hottest hours of the day, when the material is easily malleable.
Resins are stored in baskets, a flat area rich in bristles in the back legs of the bee in balls called curbicolette, similar to what happens with the transport of pollen.
ThERAPEUTICAL PROPERTY AND APPLICATIONS
The potential of propolis in respiratory tract diseases is now confirmed, particularly in cough and sore throat.
It acts as a disinfectant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
In particular, its bactericidal action in inhibiting the growth of certain bacterial strains and its ability to strengthen the immune defences of our organism has been demonstrated.
This is why it is often referred to as "natural antibiotic" and is a key element in our line of soaps and cosmetics.
In addition to these properties that are achieved through internal use of propolis (usually in the form of tincture), this can be used externally for topical use in the case of ferite, piaghe, but also afte and stomatiti.
Propylis shows a clear healing action thanks to its remarkable capacity to regenerate tissues.
All these properties make propolis an excellent remedy to be used for any type of dermatological condition.
