Complex Apicol Propolis Tincture Forte 30% 30 ml.
Complex Apicol Propolis Tincture Forte, the name of this miraculous substance comes from the Greek language.
The Greeks, observing how the bee hive is built, called it the “front part of the fortress”, propolis playing the role of guard against the intruders and turning the hive into a veritable city.
In some references it has been called as Russian Penicillin. As a resinous substance, propolis is prepared by the honey bees to seal the cracks, smooth walls and to keep moisture and temperature stable in the hive. Propolis is a sticky natural substance which is collected by the honey bees from the resin of flowers, leaves of trees and plants and it is obtained after mixing with their saliva.
There are many different compounds in propolis of different geographic regions; flavonoids are one of the most important agents which have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-allergic, anti-cancer, anti-bacterial and antioxidant effects.
Because of the complex structure of propolis, it cannot be used directly and needs to be extracted with the help of a suitable solvent. The most common solvents used for extraction are water, methanol, ethanol, chloroform, dichloromethane, ether and acetone.
Most propolis components are soluble in water or alcohol. The solvent should preserve the main components of propolis and its effects (such as bactericidal effects) while eliminating ineffective parts. Since propolis composition depends on the geographical area, it is necessary to select the desired solvent carefully.
