How is it made?
Clever honeybees buzz around filling the pockets in their legs with bark and buds to take back to their hive. Then they work as a team to naturally process by mixing the resins with wax, honey and enzymes from their tummies.
Did you know
Bees use Propolis to varnish the inside of their hives to pack a protection punch. It not only sanitises but closes cracks, reduces access, and totally fortifies the hive, in the purest way.
It's been helping humans for well over 100 years
Taking smarts from the bees, we have been using the magical power of Propolis for well over 100 years. There’s a tonne of research about this natural protector. Literally thousands of scientific papers have been published about its bioactivity and health benefits but Propolis is best known to give antibacterial, antiseptic, antioxidant, healing, and immunity system support plus support for everyday health and wellbeing.
Why PropÓleo Propolis?
To get super sciencey, the protective forces of Propolis come from the bioactive plant phenolics and flavonoids within. That means 120 to 250 mg/g of pure propolis flavonoid levels with guaranteed minimum content of polyphenols of 14%.
What's in it?
It’s composed of 50-55% resins and balsams, 30-40% wax, 5-10% essential oils, 5% pollen and 5% various materials (organic and mineral).
Its unique natural origin Urugruay is in a lush geographical region, with typical species such as: Eucalyptus globulus, Populus sp., Betula sp., and more. This means natural production of a propolis extract with top quality active ingredients. From here we maintain the integrity of PropÓleo Propolis through the Quality Management framework in line with Norm ISO 9001.
Take a high performing percentage of polyphenols and flavonoids in a balanced formulation and there you have it, PropÓleo Propolis. It contains 120 to 250 mg/g of pure propolis flavonoid levels with guaranteed minimum content of polyphenols of 14%. Just what’s needed to deliver a powerful boost of support.
To ensure complete transparency and traceability we keep a current record of the beehive producers who, after rigorous evaluation, are qualified to participate. Beeologist’s map the entire country to trace the origin and quality of every drop of PropÓleo Propolis.
The team continuously improve technology for the smartest traceability of the extract's origin, meaning you can trace your finished product right back to the bees that produced it!
30 years ago, our friend’s Apiter invented and implemented an innovative propolis harvesting method, using biodegradable “mesh” called APIMESH® Harvesting. Not only does this method work toward total waste elimination but it ensures a fantastically fresh product, with a higher content of polyphenols and a lower level of contamination. Plus, beekeepers commit to a continuous improvement in the sanitary management of the beehives.
After 35 years of research and technical development and of the implementation of traceability methods, Apiter has optimised the production process and succeeded in obtaining standardised propolis extracts, thereby assuring the stability of the active ingredients and the reduction
and/or elimination of contaminants whether the raw ingredient is 0 years old or 10 years old – amazing!
