Propolis is a powerful natural product made by bees from plant resins. Bees use Propolis to protect and sterilise the beehive, where it acts as the immune defence mechanism for the whole hive.
The protective immune defence and antioxidant properties of Propolis come from the active plant compounds it contains.Modern scientific research confirms the protective properties of Propolis can provide significant support for human health.

Propolis is one of nature’s most powerful compounds – a unique combination of plant bioactives and bee ingenuity. New Zealand Propolis is renowned for its high levels of these protective antioxidant bioactives, and is of great interest to researchers in the field of immune health.At Manuka Health we are passionate about using propolis science to demonstrate the potency of our propolis extract. We produce propolis extracts with varying levels of bioactives - BIO30 and BIO100.
