BUY Concentrated Propolis in Veggie Capsules 

Chemistry of Natural Compounds
September 2018, Volume 54, Issue 5, pp 975–977

Propolis is a product of the honey bee Apis mellifera and has a broad spectrum of biological activity (antimicrobial, antifungal, antitumor, antineurodegenerative, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cytotoxic, antituberculosis, antiviral, and immunomodulating) that is widely employed in traditional and folk medicine.

Greater than 500 compounds, of which more than 150 were flavonoids, were identified in the constituents of propolis depending on the geographic location, bee species, and plants.

The chemical composition of Bashkir propolis produced by A. mellifera from plants of the southern Urals (Bashkiria) was studied by us for the first time. Pure flavanones 1–4 and flavones 5 and 6 were isolated and identified.
