NutrinLife Bee Propolis 600mg is a high strength pure bee propolis product. This high grade bee propolis is chemically composed of more than 300 natural ingredients. Several studies demonstrate consumption of bee propolis with remarkable biological and pharmacological effects, such as antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer, and immunoregulatory actions. Recent study showed bee propolis demonstrate remarkable effect on type 2 diabetes patient.
Natural products are promising candidates for the development of new medications. Bee propolis is one such product. It is a resinous substance that is synthesized by bees from bees’ wax and saliva combined with exudates from plants. Bees make use of their synthesized propolis for the building and maintenance of their hives.1 Anciently, bee propolis has been used in traditional medicine for healing purposes, such as wound and ulcer healing.2 The constituents of raw propolis are resins (50%), waxes (30%), essential oils (10%), pollen (5%), and various other organic compounds (5%). Chemically, bee propolis is composed of more than 300 natural ingredients, including coumarins, phenolic compounds and esters, flavonoids, steroids, aldehydes, amino acids sesquiterpenes, and stilbene terpenes.3,4
Bee propolis has become a healthy supplement, with several studies demonstrating an association of bee propolis consumption with remarkable biological and pharmacological effects. Bee propolis has demonstrated antimicrobial,5 antiinflammatory,6 antioxidant,7 antiviral,8 anticancer,9 immunoregulatory actions,10 and protective effects on the liver, pancreas, heart, and brain.11,12 It has been documented that the main constituents of propolis responsible for its therapeutic effects include flavonoids, phenols, and aromatic compounds.13 Flavonoids and phenolic compounds in bee propolis exhibit a potent antioxidant activity against oxygen radicals and protect biological membranes from lipid peroxidation.14 Oxidative stress is involved, among others, in β-cell dysfunction, insulin resistance, and impaired glucose tolerance, and it poses a higher risk for the development of type 2 diabetes.15,16 In this context, bee propolis can be considered for glycemic control because of its high antioxidant properties. More recently, studies have demonstrated that bee propolis results in a significant decrease in the blood glucose levels, serum glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels, and serum insulin levels, with improvement of insulin resistance in patients with type 2 diabetes.17,18
The acclaimed beneficial effect of bee propolis in diabetes was the main motivation for conducting this study to ascertain the safety of this dietary supplement in non-diabetic individuals. Bee propolis is used by many healthy, or at least, non-diabetic people as a dietary supplement. Since it has shown some beneficial effects in people with diabetes, this study aimed to investigate the effects of bee propolis, if any, on fasting blood glucose (FBG), HbA1c, and insulin sensitivity in healthy subjects.
Propolis is a resinous, waxy substance that bees create by mixing their saliva with beeswax, along with compounds from various plants and trees. Bees use it to seal gaps in the hive to keep out intruders. Propolis also has antimicrobial properties and may protect bees from pathogens.

Healing compounds in propolis
Researchers have identified more than 500 trusted source compounds in propolis. The majority of these compounds are forms of polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that fight disease and damage in the body.
Specifically, propolis contains the polyphenols called flavonoids. Flavonoids are produced in plants as a form of protection.
Propolis also contains other potential healing compounds, such as amino acids, vitamins A, C, and E, as well as minerals such as potassium and magnesium. Other components naturally found in propolis include pollen, wax, and resin.
Dosage: take 1 tablet once daily after meal.
