About St Francis Herb Farm Propolis Tincture (100 mL)
Propolis is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve sore throat and/or other mouth and throat infections and inflammations.
Propolis is a great example of nature 's splendid economy. A resinous natural substance produced by bees to protect and line the inner walls of their hives, it doubles as a powerful medicinal remedy for humans, who have used it for centuries, if not millennia.
The strong antioxidant and infection-fighting properties of propolis are immediately related to the biologically active compounds in it. These are known as polyphenols and flavonoids and have been shown by science to have a demonstrable effect on bacteria, fungi and viruses. Astonishingly, propolis contains 500 times more flavonoids than are to be found in oranges, for example.
