Propolis and it’s effects against virusesPropolis has attracted people with it’s healing power for thousands of years ago. According to the historical records, it has been used as a remedy to treat many diseases by reducing the intensity of symptoms by ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians. Since then, propolis has been used as a natural antibiotic.
Although conventional and alternative medicine has extensively used propolis as a medicine for ages, modern medical treatments are mostly based on synthetic pharmacy products. Hence, the employment of propolis in treating diseases, unfortunately, faded away as modern medicine became powerful. However, in the last two decades, natural remedies gained significant recognition back again as the side effects of synthetic drugs created awareness in public.
Along with it’s immune boosting effects, propolis also has potent antiviral and antibacterial properties that have been highly studied and peer reviewed. Studies show that propolis:
- Inhibits the influenza virus
- Is effective against Coronavirus due to it’s unique antioxidants
- Has potent antiviral properties to support the immune system.
It’s our mission at BEE&YOU to merge science and nature to bring the highest quality natural propolis supplements. Our propolis comes from pristine meadows and highlands, in one of the most biodiverse regions in the planet and is processed by expert scientists and chemists with over 15 years of expertise.
