Natural antibiotic, antioxidant, detoxifier. Lithuanian – Baltic Propolis has up to 300 active substances, strong anti-inflammatory and antiviral effect.
Bees collect resin from the leaf buds and bark of certain trees and mix it with a little beeswax, honey, and enzymes produced by the bees themselves. The resulting propolis is a sticky and highly bioactive substance with potent antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is one of the most potent natural antibiotics offering a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity. In bee colonies, propolis serves as part of the global immune system. Propolis is used to coat the entire inside of the beehive, including the honeycomb cells, where the queen bee lays eggs, as well as at the entrance to the beehive so that all incoming and outgoing bees pass through the propolis ‘doormat’. Bees also use propolis to seal all cracks and unwanted gaps in the beehive. The chemical composition of propolis may vary depending on the bees’ habitat and the trees and flowers in their environment. For example, European propolis will have a different chemical composition to propolis in Brazil.
Propolis has a unique composition that makes it unlike any other known natural product or products synthesised in chemistry laboratories. It contains over 300 biologically active ingredients, including vitamins such as B1, B2, B6, C and E, and many useful minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium, copper, zinc, manganese, and iron.

Researchers have said that no pharmaceutical company could ever create such a wonderful natural product.
Frequently asked questions
Propolis is a substance produced by bees using plant resin and waxes, as well as enzymes secreted by the bees themselves.
Since the primary antibacterial properties of propolis lie in plant resin, its specific effects depend on the dominant plant resin within. Accordingly, the propolis that has been collected in pine forests will differ from the propolis collected in deciduous forests or meadows. It is one of the most potent natural antibiotics in our latitudes. It is also one of the few natural deodorants that has a very pleasant scent. This is especially true of the Lithuanian and Baltic propolis.
In the beehives, propolis acts as a sterile glue. Bees use it to seal all cracks and gaps to protect themselves from visible and invisible enemies, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, pests, and predators. Bees use propolis as an antiseptic, antiparasitic, and antimicrobial agent, as well as a natural deodorant.

Since propolis is a completely natural product, it can be used several times a day both in combination with the necessary prescribed treatment and as a preventative measure. The way we take propolis depends on its form. Raw propolis can be chewed much like chewing gum and it should not be ingested. A piece of propolis can also be placed on a sore tooth.
Generally, it is taken in the form of an extract or a capsule. However, extracts and tinctures are more convenient to use. An aqueous or ethanolic propolis solution tends to be used internally in the form of drops or a spray. Propolis oil is good for treating external wounds or as drops for the nose and throat.
