Bee propolis is also sometimes called bee glue and is used as a sealant to close unwanted open spaces in the hive. Honeybees create bee propolis using saliva and beeswax. Humans have been using bee propolis since the ancient Egyptians figured out it was great as an embalming agent, but the uses didn’t stop there. Bee propolis was also used for its medicinal properties. At the turn of the twentieth century, bee propolis became studied once more, with at least 300 various compounds being identified thus far. Some of the beneficial compounds are: ketones, amino acids, benzoic acids, sesquiterpene and triterpene hydrocarbons, aliphatic hydrocarbons, flavonoids, and polyphenols (anticancer), as well as many, many more.
Bee propolis is being used to treat laryngological issues, dermatological problems, gynecological matters, as well as neurodegenerative disease. It is also effective in healing wounds, and to treat ulcers, diabetes, and burns, even in mouthwashes to combat gingivitis.
Bee propolis has been proven effective against Streptococcus aureus (typhoid bacillus), Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans, Asparagus niger, Psuedomonas aeruginosa, and other bacteria as well.
Bee propolis is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it is a great alternative for many people who prefer not to take over-the-counter medications, if they can avoid it.
Bee propolis has a unique compound called pinocembrin. Pinocembrin is a flavonoid that acts as an antifungal in humans.
Bee propolis can reduce pain in an injury.
Tissue regeneration is spurred by bee propolis, as well as in damaged cartilage, and is known to enhance ossification in induced bone defects. Surgical wounds have seen improvement with the use of bee propolis also. Dental pulp regeneration has been observed using bee propolis.
A study on mice showed tumors disappearing after the use of bee propolis.
In certain cancers, a study showed that bee propolis can hinder cancer cells from growing and reduces cells from becoming cancerous. The study also showed that the use of bee propolis blocked the cancer cell pathways which prohibited the cancer cells from signaling to one another.
The intestinal infection, Guardia, caused by parasites, has its growth stopped and patients recover faster with the help of bee propolis.
Bee propolis scavenges free radicals which can interfere with cell metabolism, protecting lipids and Vitamin C from being destroyed and oxidized.
When put up against the Herpes simplex virus infections, bee propolis was effective in a 0.5% extract form in the tune of a 50% decrease in symptoms. It also showed effectiveness against genital herpes infections.
This is what aids in faster wound healing. Children have seen relief with the common cold, prevention of respiratory tract infections, as well as prevention of middle ear infections.
Bee propolis was shown to improve chronic vaginitis in a 2005 study.
Bee pollen is in recorded history all the way back in 2735 BC. Not only as a nutritional source, but also therapeutically. Bees travel to collect bee pollen, and they get it from the flowers that they land on. Bee pollen contains almost all of the B vitamins, including: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, folic acid, and carotenoids. There are essential fatty acids, trace elements, minerals, enzymes, and even amino acids in bee pollen. Unprocessed pollen is not edible for humans, so getting it from the bees is the only way to get the benefits, due their mixture of the pollen with their saliva.
Bee pollen contains Vitamin P, or Rutin, which aids in strengthening capillaries and blood cell walls. This cannot be reproduced in a drug form, it is only available in bee pollen.
Brain fatigue can be alleviated with bee pollen. It enhances alertness and concentration due to all of the B vitamins.
Bee pollen has been known to help people with allergies, even hay fever, by reducing the histamine levels that rise in the body.
Bee pollen has been proven effective against some strains of bacteria and salmonella.
Bee pollen has been given to anemic patients, and researchers found that the hemoglobin levels increased when bee pollen was ingested.
Normal intake of bee pollen acts to normalize cholesterol levels and also lower triglycerides. There’s a lot more to this, HDL goes up, LDL goes down.
There are studies that show that bee pollen stimulates the immune system by strengthening the resistance of the organic system. Lymphocytes increase quite dramatically, and begin to get rid of harmful substances, mutant cells, viruses, infected cells.
This may only be pertinent when you are trying to conceive, but bee pollen increases the intensity of ovulation. Bee pollen also helps the eggs withstand the incubation period.
Bee pollen is known to stabilize weight by correcting chemical imbalance in metabolism. Bee pollen has lecithin at 15% lecithin by volume, which helps dissolve and flush the fat right out of the body. Bee pollen also acts as an appetite suppressant due its ability to help eliminate cravings when on a diet.
Manuka honey is in a league of its own. Only European honeybees (Apis mellifera) that frequent the tea tree (Leptospermum scoparium) which only grows in New Zealand and southeastern Australia can create the coveted Manuka honey. True Manuka honey has to pass all five tests. The benefits of Manuka honey became heralded to naturopaths in the 1980’s, when Dr. Peter Molan scientifically proved the benefits of honey coming from this plant.
All honey creates hydrogen peroxide when diluted. Manuka honey takes antibacterial to a new extreme by killing MRSA and eliminating superbugs from wounds. The ability to crash through antibiotic strains of bacteria earned the rating system of UMF. Medical grade Manuka honey with a certified UMF rating of 10+ has compounds that benefit topical support for wounds, acne, and scars.
This makes Manuka honey a great sugar substitute, by keeping blood sugar from spiking like traditional sugar.
Manuka honey attacks harmful bacteria that causes plaque to form, gum inflammation, and tooth decay. Higher UMF rated Manuka honey may wipe out P. gingivalis and other harmful bacteria.
Do not underestimate this –irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) sees relief when Manuka honey is involved. Powerful and terrifying bacteria C. Diff nosedives when Manuka honey is used.
CF is inherited and attacks the lungs, digestive system, and other organs. Mucus producing cells work overtime, which causes difficulty breathing in the sufferer of CF. Manuka honey has been shown to fight the harmful bacteria that cause the upper respiratory infections that plague CF patients.
Manuka honey is used in face masks to alleviate skin issues and acne. Rosacea is known to benefit from the use of Manuka honey because the Manuka honey restores the natural skin texture of the patient. Eczema and hives also benefit from the use of Manuka honey.
Manuka honey is even effective against athlete’s foot and ringworm, which are common fungal infections on the skin.
Royal Jelly (RJ) took off in ancient Greece as part of the “ambrosia,” or nectar that gave immortality to the gods on Olympus. In ancient Egypt, Royal Jelly was used like a cosmetic, most notably used by Cleopatra. In ancient Asia, China especially, Royal Jelly was used as for its medicinal properties. Royal Jelly is an acid colloid made up of water, sugar, lipids, proteins, some mineral salts, and vitamins. Royal Jelly is affected by the season and plants that are available to the bees.

Organic Vegetable Glycerin
Organic Vegetable Glycerin is a humectant, which means that it seals in moisture. It is clear, odorless, and tasteless, and extracted from plants through a process of hydrolysis. Organic vegetable glycerin is used in many ways: food, cosmetic, pharmaceuticals.
Organic vegetable glycerin is popular in skincare products because it is a powerful moisturizer.
When ingested organic vegetable glycerin draws water into the gut, which aids in the food moving out of the gut with ease. Glycerin is often made into suppositories and enemas.
Adding 2.4 grams of glycerin to water, before exercise, can keep an athlete hydrated. It has been proven more effective than sports drinks.
SUGGESTIONS FOR USE: Take 1-3 droppers full(each dropper fills up 50-75%), under the tongue 1-3 times per day, or as recommended by your health care professional or personally desired. Hold under your tongue for 15 seconds before swallowing, apply topically, or add to food and or drink. 120 droppers per bottle. Effects are more noticeable on an empty stomach. Great to use daily to keep the immune system functioning optimally, or before events requiring energy and focus.
