Why Propolis and Echinacea?
Propolis is produced naturally in beehives, this anti-biotic protects bees from disease and infection. Comprised of several vitamins and minerals, propolis acts as an effective anti-bacterial, anesthetic and healing aid. Offering numerous human health benefits, propolis has been administered for centuries.
Echinacea is known to be an effective immune system stimulant and possesses many anti-bacterial properties and is a common choice in the treatment of colds, sore throats and the flu.
As a soluble dietary fiber known for its many health benefits, pectin can lower serum cholesterol, particularly LDL, improve insulin resistance, relieve diarrhea and act as a detoxicant. Pectin also acts as a regulator and protectant of the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, pectin stimulates the immune system and acts as an anti-ulcer and antinephrotic agent. Furthermore, pectin helps prevent surges in blood glucose levels by promoting saeity and possibly by reducing the glucose uptake rate after consumption of glycaemic (available) carbohydrates. Pectin may also reduce the risk of heart disease, gallstones and is good for people with diabetes.
Propolis is the resinous substance collected by bees from the leaf buds and bark of trees, especially poplar and conifer trees. Bees use the propolis along with beeswax to construct their hives.
Where is it found?
Propolis is available in liquid extract form as well as in capsules and tablets. Topical creams and sprays containing propolis are also available, but whether they closely resemble topical propolis products used in research is unclear.
Parts Used and Where Grown
Echinacea is a wildflower native to North America. While echinacea continues to grow and is harvested from the wild, the majority used for herbal supplements comes from cultivated plants. The root and/or the above-ground part of the plant during the flowering growth phase are used in herbal medicine.
Historical or Traditional Use
Echinacea was used by Native Americans for a variety of conditions, including venomous bites and other external wounds. It was introduced into U.S. medical practice in 1887 and was touted for use in conditions such as colds. Modern research started in the 1930s in Germany.
