 Propolis is a living substance - combining

essences of plant and animal, energies of earth and air.



Propolis What Is It ? 

Propolis is a potent natural substance found in beehives. 

Propolis is composed of plant substances mixed with the digestive juices and wax of the bees.

The pharmacology of propolis protects the bees and hive from a wide range of pathogens and suffuses the hive with an atmosphere of vibrancy. Powerful bioflavanoids, plant resins, essential oils and pollen are the major components of propolis. 

The exact composition of propolis varies by place and time but is always guided by the selective intelligence of the bees themselves.


What Is It Used For ?

 In human and animal health, propolis has evidenced the following broad spectrum qualities:



             Immune system stimulant and antioxidant

             Antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anticancer agent


             Stimulant to cell regeneration

             Biological response modification


Dosage, Dosing, and Duration of Use

Depending on the application, therapeutic dosages may range from 1/4 tsp to 6 tsp (7 - 30 ml) or more per day.  GlenHeaven Propolis is offered in 1 to 16 fluid ounce sizes.

Dividing the dosage into a dosing schedule of 2 - 3 times per day can greatly increase its effectiveness.

The relevant mechanism of propolis' action is often to stimulate the body's own healing powers.  A substances with  this kind of effect are called a Biological Response Modifier (BRM) In such cases it is important to estimate the time necessary to accomplish this and exercise a reasonable patience toward that goal.

Is Propolis Safe ?

There are reported instances of contact dermatitis in a very small number of people. The dermatitis disappears with discontinued contact with propolis.

If you are highly sensitive to many substances, or merely prefer to exercise greater caution, you may want to test your sensitivity to propolis. Put a small amount on your skin to see if a rash develops before using it more extensively. 


Propolis and Pharmaceutical Medicines

The literature cites examples of a positive synergy with certain classes of drugs, such as antibiotics, but no reported instances of adverse reactions when taken with medications.  Especially positive results in this partnership have been reported with asthma, cancer, and diabetes.
