Propolis is a substance used by bees for cleaning and insulating the hives produced from plants. The color varies according to the plant in which the bee is used. It is usually dark brown color.
In recent days, propolis, a miracle of the nature we often hear, is used to strengthen the immune system of children. What makes propolis so valuable?
Used in the treatment of bone resorption before and after menopause in women
It is therapeutic in upper respiratory diseases.
It is used in asthma, bronchitis, ear, nose, throat diseases.
Pain in rheumatism.
Used in uterine inflammation and menstrual irregularities.
Calcification, sinusitis, psoriasis, eczema and shingles.
It regulates the immune system.
It is effective on bacteria, yeast and viruses.
It reduces the side effects of chemotherapy.
It increases the platelet level in patients receiving chemotherapy.
It regulates blood sugar and lipids.
Relieves the pain of rheumatism.
Liver and kidney have protective properties.
It is known to be a natural antibiotic for children.
Judging by all this, he's a miracle. However, I would like to remind you that propolis is an ineffective substance when it is used less and poisonous when it is used. Propolis has been poured into the trade, as is the case with every product.
Given that the conversion of this invaluable substance into a drug or poison is the dose used, the dose of a substance having such beneficial effects must be determined. It is extremely dangerous to chew propolis from pure beekeepers, to consume homemade propolis dissolved in ethyl alcohol, and to use unconscious propolis with a scientifically unconfirmed drop number. In addition, propolis products using solvents such as alcohol, ethanol, propylene glycol, glycerol should never be given to children. If the solvent at the blood concentration exceeds 0.15% - 0.2%, it can cause serious and serious disorders such as central nervous system depression, hypoxia, coma and confusion.
Unfortunately, some companies hide the solvents they use. Propylene glycol is regarded as wheat alcohol and is recommended for children!
I wish healthy days.
