What is propolis?
Propolis is a sticky, resinous material. Honey collects from the different plants to protect the hive from external influences, from microorganisms and other harmful substances, and covers the propolis that they bring to their hives. Propolis, a resinous substance collected and accumulated from a wide variety of plant buds, leaves and hulls, is generally collected from beech, elm and coniferous trees. The bees use propolis to keep the inner walls of the hive neat, to close the mouths of the honeycombs and to prevent other creatures from entering.
Propolis has an antibiotic effect against fungi and bacteria in the case of the larvae. The compounds in the composition differ according to the species of plants in which propolis is harvested. The effect of propolis is due to the antioxidant-active components that the bees harvest from the plants.
The beekeepers collect the propolis after digging in the pouch. The propolis is then ready for use by some procedure. In the composition of flavonoids, a significant part of the content of propolis is composed of phenolic acids, polyphenols and their esters, steroids, terpenes, vitamins B1, B2, C and E, minerals and aminoacids.
