The Immunity Boosting Benefits of a Propolis Tincture
Propolis has been clinically proven to help nip viruses and bacterial infections in the bud.
From gum infections to giving a much-needed boost to a compromised immune system - a Propolis tincture is the remedy.
Viruses and pathogens can have a plethora of nasty effects: from cold sores, and muscle aches to fevers, diarrhoea and a sore throat. There’s a surprising product that can boost your immune system and protect your family from infection and disease. The source? Well, this powerful cure comes from the humble little bee.
What is Propolis?
Propolis is a natural by-product created by bees commonly known as bee glue. The natural resin-like substance is designed to protect nature’s little workers from pathogens and infections in the hive. Propolis mainly consists of beeswax, some pollen and other by-products secreted by bees. One such by-product is traces of ‘royal jelly’ or the superfood which serves as food to the queen bee.
Propolis has been shown to have amazing anti-viral and antiseptic properties and to be a natural protector against viruses and pathogens. Its protective properties have been recognized for centuries - from ancient Egypt and Greece to the Assyrians.
Propolis is amazing for the immune system. According to the NIH, it can help the immune system fight since it contains anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antitumour and immune-modulating properties.
Here are just a few of the amazing benefits of propolis tinctures :
High in Antioxidants
A large majority of Propolis is made up of polyphenols or the antioxidants that help the body fight off disease. Antioxidants are used by plants to protect themselves.
Good for Wound Healing
The anti-bacterial nature of Propolis makes it amazing for recovering wounds and its effects have been well documented. It also contains enzymes which help to break down damaged tissues while assisting the growth of new healthy tissues.
Symptom Reduction for Cold Sores & Herpes
Cold sores are painful and embarrassing, and so are the other forms of the herpes virus. Many commonly prescribed ointments for cold sores and genital herpes already contain propolis as it fast tracks the healing process. Propolis reduced the levels of the herpes virus in the body and lessened the severity of cold sore breakouts in the future.
Has Anti-Cancerous Properties
The biphasic properties of honey have been shown to be helpful in the hormonal component of breast cancer. It has also been shown to have antimetastatic benefits for liver cancer. These are just two specific examples. Overall Propolis tinctures can help disrupt the growth of cancer cells by inhibiting processes in these cells and decreasing inflammation. They can stop cells from becoming cancerous while reducing the side effects of cancer treatments.
