What is Propolis?
Propolis is the treasure of nature -- thousands of years ago, the ancient civilisations have made use of the medicinal value of propolis. The Greeks used it to treat abscesses; the Assyrians placed it on wounds and tumours to treat infection and help with healing. In the natural environment, propolis is initially produced by bees to construct and restore their hive.
Propolis helps reduce fatigue, and relieve oral inflammation and throat discomfort. Meanwhile, propolis can be categorised into green propolis and brown propolis. Green propolis is more nutritious than brown propolis, and is distinguished by its richness in an antioxidant - Artepillin C.
