New Zealand honey bee


Powerful Immune Support

Propolis is a natural substance made by bees to sterilise and protect the hive against infection. Resins collected by honeybees from the bark and sticky buds of plants are mixed with beeswax and enzymes, producing a powerful substance rich in bioactive compounds with potent protective effects. Scientists have identified very high levels of bioactive compounds including Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester (CAPE) in Manuka Health's BIO New Zealand Propolis, for powerful immune support.

Propolis is a natural resin found in the young buds of trees. Bees collect propolis, mix it with their own enzymes and beeswax, and use it to seal the hive. This creates the most sterile environment known in nature and protects the hive against disease. Propolis is rich in amino acids and trace elements. It has high vitamin content and at least 38 valuable bioflavonoids, phenolic acids and esters including caffeic acid phenethyl ester or "CAPE".

 Manuka Health’s Propolis is gathered by bees from plants in New Zealand’s pristine environment. BIO30™ New Zealand Propolis has very high bioflavonoid levels that have been independently certified to be at least 30mg/g (BIO30™)
