Nutriwise Bee Propolis Extract
Bee propolis is a plant resin collected by bees for use in building their hive. It has bacteria fighting properties and studies show that it stimulates immune cells called macrophages. Macrophages chew up infected cells and cellular debris. Bee propolis applied topically on bruises, scrapes and cuts helps to prevent infection and speeds tissue healing. Taken internally propolis fights infection in the respiratory tract, stops coughing and soothes irritated throats. Bee propolis is sometimes added to mouthwashes and toothpaste. It fights bad breath by killing bacteria that colonize the mouth.
