When bees started to gather in hives, they had a problem that no medical person would want to face…how do you avoid bacterial infection when 40,000 (give or take) bodies are constantly crawling over each other in a hive?
Nature provided the answer for the bee’s problem. Certain trees, flowers, and plants exude a sap that has antibiotic qualities to protect them from infection. The bees gather this sap, metabolize it naturally and take it back to the hive. The hive is then coated with this resin so that every bee in the hive could brush against it and become immunized. Many scientists believe a hive to be more sterile and free from bacteria than a modern hospital’s surgical areas.
It is said that Propolis is the most natural antibiotic man has ever discovered. The remarkable thing about this statement is the fact that this discovery took place some 2000 years ago. A lot of people probably haven t even heard about Propolis, and yet, ancient herbal books prescribed Propolis for numerous complaints. The bactericidal qualities of this medicine have been known since the beginning of written history.
The use of Propolis in popular medicine goes back all the way to ancient times. Egyptians, Greeks and Romans reported the use of Propolis for its general healing qualities and for the cure of some lesions of the skin.
Currently, doctors and scientists have proven Propolis to be effective in helping to build immunity and resistance toward infections, ulcers, viruses, stress, burns, fungi and other harmful agents.
