Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Honey Health Farms - About Propolis

Dale Benedict of Honey Health Farms shares information about propolis:

Propolis Facts:

Because of its antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, this precious substance has been used as a healing agent for many centuries. Only honeybees can make propolis.

It has the ability to provide protection against infectious invaders, promote healing and regeneration of tissue, and provides a superior source of energy and stamina. It has been used as ointments for healing cuts and wounds and shown to have outstanding value for a wide variety of illnesses.

It is also used as a natural alternative to penicillin and other antibiotics. It is said to be particularly safe and effective and inhibits the resistance-building effect that is a negative factor with prescription antibiotics.

In the former Eastern Bloc countries, antibiotics have never been widely available, but beekeeping is widely practiced. To help prevent many diseases, hospitals and clinics recommended washing, gargling or irrigating the sinuses with propolis rinses, as well as taking propolis internally.

This bee product is certainly a good weapon against bacteria when used topically as well as taking propolis internally. It can clearly prevent infections, and can also help heal infections that have already begun.
