Propolis: What is the history and benefits of this valuable therapeutic substance?
Sanou may have already heard of propolis, but perhaps you do not know precisely its benefits and its origins. Used since the dawn of time in medicine and herbal medicine, propolis is above all a powerful natural antibiotic. We owe this precious substance to an insect that wishes us well the bee !
These foragers make it to seal and sanitize their cells. They do this by collecting resin found on the bark of trees, often conifers, or on the buds of certain plants.
The numerous therapeutic virtues of propolis are now scientifically recognized. Thanks to its various active ingredients (propolis has at least 300 components), propolis has impressive virtues antibacterial, antivirals and anti-inflammatories. It also has the following properties antifungals and anti-oxidants and effectively stimulates the immune system.
What is commonly called propolis in alternative medicine and herbal medicine is a resinous substanceThe bee's own balsamic and gummy amber flavour.
This resin is in fact made up of propolis itself, the resinous substance produced by certain plants, resin transformed by the bee into a complex material. When we speak of propolis in the pharmaceutical field, we mean the substance transformed by the bee and not the raw resin of the tree.
Propolis is a material composed mainly of resin collected by the bee, transformed by its secretions (mainly salivary), and wax.
Where is propolis found?
Pure propolis is therefore created from vegetable resins. The bees will look for this substance on the budsof trees such as poplar (mainly), alder, willow, plum, ash, birch or horse chestnut. They also harvest the bark resin of conifers, pines, spruces and firs.
Propolis in the sense that it is understood, the substance made by bees, is then collected in the hives.
How do bees make propolis?
We can enjoy the miraculous benefits of propolis thanks to the goldsmith's work of the bee. L’worker beeharvesting the resin with its mandibles and transports it with the pollen baskets on its hind legs. This harvest is done from spring to early fall.
The masons will then immediately transform this resin by adding their secretions and wax. Propolis is essential to bees as it serves first of all as a natural waterproof "cement" to reinforce the cells, to seal holes or to reduce the opening of nests.
But propolis also plays a major role for bees in the sanitation of their habitat. They line the walls of the cells with pure propolis to prevent the proliferation of bacteria, fungi and moulds. Logically, since propolis has known and recognized antifungal and antibacterial virtues.
Propolis can even be used to embalm the corpses of intruding animals!
How is propolis collected and processed by humans?
Propolis can be collected in several ways. Some beekeepers collect it by scraping and scraping the frames and hives, but the most common and efficient method is the use of propolis screens, placed on the head of the frames. The grids come in different materials: textile, plastic, or metal. The bees will fill the holes in these propolis screens.
The grids are then put in the cold (propolis becomes hard and brittle at a temperature below 15°) and scraped.
Transformation of propolis into an extract or mother tincture
The pieces of propolis are crushed into powder and then poured into a mixture of water and ethanol. The propolis will then be left to macerate for several weeks or months in the dark, and stirred regularly.
Gradually, the alcoholic solution will be loaded with active components of propolis. Finally the liquid will be filtered, and the pure propolis extract put in a bottle.
