Study: Propolis Showed ‘Significant Protective Effect’ on Intestinal Lining

Propolis Reduces Bacterial Translocation and Intestinal Villus Atrophy in Experimental Obstructive Jaundice
World Journal of Gastroenterology, 2007 October 21; 13(39): 5226-5231

AIM: To investigate the effects of propolis on bacterial translocation and ultrastructure of intestinal morphology in experimental obstructive jaundice…

CONCLUSION: Propolis showed a significant protective effect on ileal mucosa and reduced bacterial translocation in the experimental obstructive jaundice model. Further studies should be carried out to explain the mechanisms of these effects.
