It happens every winter: colleagues are sniffing at their desks while you rarely escaped an infection originating from the man on the train who coughed just a little too hard. And before you know it, you too will have to believe it. Colds are something we don't seem to escape once temperatures dip below zero. Or is it possible after all?
Propolis could well be the remedy that helps you through the harsh winter months without falling victim to a cold. But what exactly is propolis?
The sticky substance comes from juices and resinous secrets that bees create to keep their nests nice, warm and safe. They fly from tree to tree to mix the resin of tree and leaf buds with wax, pollen and body fluids on the spot. With that stuff they then fly back to their nest to seal their home. Propolis also protects the bees against bacteria, fungi, humidity and unwanted intruders.
To the rescue!
But Propolis is not only a beneficial remedy for the bees. As indicated, propolis also has many benefits for humans. Due to its antibacterial and antifungal effect, it reduces the risk of colds, canker sores, inflammation, stomach ulcers, viral infections, and so on. In addition, several studies have already shown that propolis has an immune-enhancing property.
