Capsules are another convenient way of taking Propolis. Taken daily, these capsules will help maintain your body's natural ability to resist ill-health. Each tablets contains 500 mg of Propolis. There are certain trees - including numerous Australian natives - which exude a resin to protect themselves from infection. This resin, which has strong antibiotic properties, is gathered by bees which then metabolise it and smear it over the walls of their hive. This substance is called propolis. It is a very complex substance and contains flavonoids, organic acids, vitamins and numerous minerals. Propolis is a natural antibiotic with strong antimicrobial properties. It also possesses anaesthetic and strong antioxidant properties. It is very helpful in a wide range of health conditions: Propolis applied externally will relieve pain from burns, wounds and earache. Propolis will help prevent bad breath, gum problems and other minor mouth and throat problems. Inhalation of the tincture will relieve minor upper-respiratory tract infections.
