What is Propolis?
Propolis is a natural antibiotic, made from the resin of plant sprouts & tree trunks collected by worker bees.
This resin is added with mandibular gland secretions and beeswax to synthesize a gel-like aromatic solid.
The bees apply it to the entrance & inner walls of the hive to preserve its health & sterility.
Brazil’s Natural Treasure?
Brazil’s long summers, a hot climate & high air humidity, makes it a hotbed for pathogens & bacteria. Bees will produce strong bactericidal propolis to protect the honeycomb & themselves.
The harsher the environment that the bees are in, the stronger the antibacterial properties of their propolis.
In addition to its general health functions, green propolis is superior in terms of antibacterial properties & improving our immunity.
How are we getting its purest form?
Supercritical Extraction Method.
Using pressurized supercritical fluids as solvents, the density of the supercritical fluid can be modified by adjusting the pressure and temperature, therefore affecting the desired solubility.
Improved selectivity, higher extraction yields, better fractionation capabilities, and lower environmental impacts, you know you’re getting the best.
