It is the resinous substance produced by bees after collecting plant sap that flows from the tops of buds and wounds of tree branches and other plant sources, then mixing it with saliva and enzymes from its stomach with beeswax and pollen
Propolis has a pungent taste and different colors of yellow, red, brown and green, which is the finest type of propolis produced by bees from plants in the humid rainy tropics such as southeast Brazil
All the benefits for human health are due to the fact that Propolis contains active biological compounds such as phenols, flavonoids and terpenes, and it contains trace minerals and vitamins.
Although green propolis contains everything that all other types of propolis contain, but it is the best among them.Its quality is due to the fact that it contains more quantities of terpene compounds, which represent 23.4% of the composition and the most active types of flavonoids, the most important of which is cinnamic, which represents 26.6% of the composition. these compounds are the most powerful types of antioxidants and antimicrobials, especially for pneumonia, gums and tooth decay
The green Propolis has gained this feature from its botanical source from the medicinal plant Caris Dracion chiolifolia that grows in this region.
Add drops (5-10) in water or juice (the juice is preferred to improve the taste) and drink.
Please note that the percentage of propolis (bee propolis) in Proposil honey is only about 4%, which is a reasonable percentage to support general health and increase the immunity of the average person.
It is preferred in therapeutic purposes, whether skin or internal diseases, such as stomach or duodenal ulcers, colitis, or otherwise, to obtain quick results, to use it in small doses every three hours for a period of three days.
In case of using concentrated propolis for therapeutic purpose, it is advisable not to continue using it for more than a month, but take a break for a month, then use it again for not more than a month , and so on
But for diluted propolis in the product named propolis honey, it is OK to use it occasionally. Also, it is possible to increase the concentration of propolis in honey by adding a dropper of Propolis to the same package of Propolis honey or other pure natural honey as needed and in accordance with the purpose.
In all cases it would not harm because it is just a food or a nutritional supplement and not a medicine, then take a spoonful of the mix in the morning and evening.
