Propolis is a natural resinous substance generally referred to as ‘bee glue’. Bees collect resin from the bark and buds of the trees and process it by mixing wax, pollen, salivary secretions and collected natural resins to form Propolis. The bees utilise this dark sticky substance to fill up any cracks and smoothing of the inner layer of the hive. This process is to seal and protect the hive from infection, fungal growth and bacteria. The bees also smear Propolis around the entrance of their hive to strengthen the hive and protect from intruders.
Propolis is a complex natural substance that contains phytochemicals, flavonoids, organic acids, vitamins and minerals. It contains flavonoids and is made up of resin & balsam 50%, wax 30% essentials oils 10%, pollen 5% and organic matter 5%. Flavonoids are one of the main groups of phenolic compounds in Propolis. This flavonoid concentration affects the bioactivity of Propolis.
Excess Propolis is extracted from the beehive by beekeepers and a cold treatment process is then applied to make the substance suitable for topical use and human consumption.
The use of bee products has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years dating back to ancient Egypt and Greece. Healing properties have been mentioned in the bible, Veda and the Quran.
The name ‘Propolis” comes from ancient Greek language, “Pro” meaning before or in front and “polis” meaning city. Propolis means ‘in front of the city’ as in the defence of the city.
Manuka honey contains a unique naturally occurring compound called methylglyoxal (MGO) which is formed in the nectar of the Manuka flower. Australian by Nature’s Manuka honey is 100% natural with no additives.
Each batch of Australian by Nature Manuka Honey is tested and certified by an accredited laboratory under the ISO17025 standard for its MGO (Methylglyoxal) levels ensuring a minimum amount of methylglyoxal.
Manuka is the Native New Zealand Maori name for the leptospermum scoparium tree. Australian by Nature sources Manuka Honey from Australia and New Zealand. This honey is produced by honeybees and collected from beehives located in high density, organic and pollution free Manuka Forests. Once collected, Manuka is filtered and packaged to ensure the retention of its natural properties. Manuka honey is extremely stable and not affected by light, heat nor dilution making it very effective in many applications.
