Preventive use of propolis

Like all products from the world of beekeeping, propolis is a valid remedy to be used to prevent seasonal ailments and thus strengthen the protective barriers of our body .

Taking propolis in the changing seasons, not only at the gates of winter, helps our body to support temperature changes , environmental stresses, and therefore to strengthen the immune system .

The dry extract formulation is the most easily absorbed in this case and can be taken for short cycles to be repeated. This is because as with many remedies, our body has an extremely active memory and can easily lead to addiction , so it is advisable not to prolong the use of propolis as a preventive measure beyond three months.
