Propolis is a complex resinous bee product primarily composed of plant resins and beeswax that has various consistency and coloration.
Brazilian Green Bee Propolis is considered as the world’s best and most effective propolis. This is partially due to the fact that Brazil (the largest propolis producer in the world) has the proper climate and environment for bees to produce propolis throughout the year. The tropical weather condition in Brazil makes it ideal for harvesting propolis all year long. In addition, the Brazilian rainforest provides a rich and unpolluted natural environment from which the bees could collect propolis from. The Brazilian propolis comes from more than 300 different types of plants and greatly contributes to its comprehensive health benefits.
The main ingredients of the Brazilian propolis include protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, phenolics, and terpenes. Brazilian propolis is known as a powerful antioxidant that helps fight bacteria, viruses, fungi, and infections of the respiratory system. It also has anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, and anti-ulcer properties.
