Honey is a foodstuff in liquid, thick or crystalline form. Honey is the natural sweet substance produced by honey bees from the nectar of blossoms or from secretions of living parts of plants or excretions of plant sucking insects on the living parts of plants, which honey bees collect, transform and combine with specific substances of their own, store and leave in the honey comb to ripen and mature.
Propolis is a natural resin found in the young buds of trees. Bees collect propolis, mix it with their own enzymes and beeswax, and use it to seal the hive. This creates the most sterile environment known in nature and protects the hive against disease. Propolis is well known for its anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and antiseptic properties which come from its high levels of Bioflavonoids. The Bioflavonoids are a natural part of a plants immune system. Bioflavonoids have been shown to have a wide range of biological activities including anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
