Propolis and viral illnesses

Medicine so far no successful drugs for many viral diseases. In the fight against the virus best results achieved by the application of prophylactic procedures, especially vaccination.

Propolis and immunological system

For centuries propolis is being Mentioned as strengthener of the immunological system. Newer researches are undoubtedly Confirming Such traditional experiences (1). Results are Indicating that propolis amplifies immunological mechanisms for the production of specific and nonspecific defensive matters with Which it is Confronting illness and interrupts its progress, independently of native and acquired immunological Capacities. Professionally, Such effect is defined as immunomodulational immunoregulational or activity, and popularly like the strengthening of immunological system.

Propolis and bacterium inflammation

Antibacterial effect of propolis is more expressed on the gram-positive (Streptococcus SP. ,Staphylococcus SP.) than on the gram-negative bacterium (Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Proteus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa) (1). In the antibacterial effect more ingredients of propolis are participating.

Propolis and radiation

Research suggest that propolis may protect the organism from the harmful effects of radioactive, ultraviolet and electromagnetic radiation.

Propolis and inflammation

There are numerous scientific proofs about the antiinflammatory effects of propolis, not just on inflammations caused by microorganisms but on aseptic inflammations which are not caused by infectious agens (burns from radiations and chemicals, autoimmune inflammations). Leading role in it has have the polyphenols from propolis. Researches discover more and more of the complexity of biochemic mechanisms which propolis starts in inflammatory processes. Its antioxidant activity is base of antiinflammatory effect which manifests itself in the prevention of oxidative stress, neutralization of free radicals and strengthened activity of antioxidant enzymes (1,2). Aside from this, propolis stimulates cells of immunological system for production of substances with the antiinflamatory effect (IL-10 etc.), but prevents creation of substances which support the inflammation (IL-1 beta, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-12, TNF-alphas etc.) (3).

Native propolis and tumor

Numerous research data is indicating that propolis has the anticancer potential in preventing and therapy of tumor diseases.
