Propolis is one of nature’s most powerful compounds – a unique combination of plant bioactives and bee ingenuity. Made by bees from plant resins, propolis is used to protect and sterilise the beehive, where it acts as the immune defence mechanism for the whole hive.
Used as a traditional health product for centuries, modern scientific research confirms the protective properties of Propolis can provide significant support for human health.
The protective immune defence and antioxidant properties of Propolis come from the bioactive plant compounds it contains. New Zealand Propolis is renowned for its high levels of these protective bioactives, and is the subject of much research in the field of immune and cellular health.
At Manuka Health we are committed to using advanced propolis science to demonstrate the potency of our propolis. We produce propolis products with varying levels of bioactives to suit different needs - see our BIO™ New Zealand Propolis product range.
Not all propolis is equal - the quality and potency of propolis depends on the country and plants it comes from.
New Zealand’s unique environment produces plant-life rich in bioactive compounds that help protect and enhance the plants survival. These bioactives are concentrated in New Zealand Propolis and are recognised for their powerful protective benefits for human health.
