Propolis Science
Propolis Research

Propolis has been used as a traditional health product for centuries. It was used as an embalming agent by ancient Egyptians, to support the immune system by the Greeks and to provide antioxidant support by the Chinese.  

Modern scientific research confirms the protective properties of Propolis can provide immune support, antioxidant protection & the maintenance of general wellbeing




Manuka Health BIO30™ Quality & Testing

Working in conjunction with leading scientists in New Zealand and overseas, Manuka Health pioneered the process of extracting and measuring specific beneficial bioactive compounds found in New Zealand Propolis.

This set a new and higher standard by:

  • Identifying the compounds that are active in the body (‘bioactive’) rather than simply using a general flavonoid test which includes non-bioactive compounds, and also misses out some very active compounds that are not flavonoids
  • Testing every batch for these bioactives (specific flavonoids and caffeates including CAPE)
  • Certifying the levels of bioactives in the product to guarantee strength and efficacy in every dose
