Propolis Alleviates Aluminum Toxicity

Propolis Alleviates Aluminium Induced Lipid Peroxidation and Biochemical Parameters in Male Rats
Food and Chemical Toxicology, Article in Press

Aluminium is present in many manufactured foods and medicines and is also added to drinking water during purification purposes. Therefore, the present experiment was undertaken to determine the effectiveness of propolis in alleviating the toxicity of aluminium chloride (AlCl3) on biochemical parameters, antioxidant enzymes and lipid peroxidation of male Wistar Albino rats...

The presence of propolis with AlCl3 alleviated its toxic effects in rats treated with AlCl3. It can be concluded that propolis has beneficial influences and could be able to antagonize AlCl3 toxicity.
