"Propolis” originated from the Latin words “pro” for front and “polis” for city. Put together, it means a castle wall to prevent enemies’ incursion. Propolis is a strong resinous substance from plants which bees used to seal their hives. The adhesive smoothens the internal walls of the hive and protects the entrance against intruders.
It protects the entire honeycomb from foreign invasion. Research studies have shown propolis to be extremely beneficial in promoting good immune health in humans.
Top-grade propolis has a distinctive characteristic pungent taste. Studies attributed the pungent taste to the presence of Artepillin-C, a good marker with respect to both its functional quality and effectiveness. Hence, propolis products without such pungent taste may indicate the absence of Artepillin C.
