Bee Health: Propolis
Propolis is a biological substance made by bees and harvested from their hives there is no harm to the bees and Propolis is acceptable to the Vegetarian Society. Its based on resins and gums collected by bees from various trees, mainly alder, birch, chestnut and poplar in Europe.

The bees turn these into Propolis which they use to coat key areas in their hives such as entrances, to seal cracks, and to cover foreign objects too big for them to remove. It provides the bee colonies with an auto-immune system as well as acting as a combined antibiotic and anti-viral protection. All vulnerable areas of their hives are protected by Propolis, hence its name which translates from Greek as "Defender of the City".

In England, it was mentioned by John Gerard in his Historie of Plants in 1597.

The main active components of Propolis are flavonoid polyphenols, particularly the flavonols galangin and quercetin, the flavanone pinocembrin, and the flavone chrysone.
