Comvita Propolis comes from unspoilt areas of New Zealand where deciduous trees produce resin to protect their young buds and exposed areas. Honeybees gather the resin on their back legs and carry it to the hive where they mix it with beeswax and enzymes to make Propolis. Propolis sterilises and seals the hive, protecting it from bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Thus Propolis is known as “nature’s best defence”.
Propolis is rich in a certain group of antioxidants called flavonoids (also known as bioflavonoids). Flavonoids are powerful, free-radical scavengers that give strong support to the human body’s natural immune system at the cellular level and assist with cell regeneration.
Comvita Propolis Tincture PFL15 can be taken orally, mixed with a spoonful of honey.
