Propolis, a natural product of the honeybee with a broad range of medicinal applications – Made in Saskatchewan

Propolis is a resinous substance collected by bees from leaf buds and exudates of trees and conifers. The bees modify the original resin composition to produce the Propolis and use it as a sealing agent and to keep the growth of microbes in the beehive under control. It is said, that the interior of a beehive is one of the most sterile environments in nature.

Although the chemical composition of Propolis is very complex, the properties of Propolis have shown extensive antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, cytotoxic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Because of these biological properties, Propolis has been shown to have outstanding value to mankind for a wide variety of illnesses and maladies.

What does Bee Propolis contain?

More than 200 individual compounds have been established as the constituents of Propolis.

One half of the propolis compositions are so called polyphenols:

Phenolic acids (vanillic, salicylic, cinnamic, p-coumaric, ferulic, caffeic), their esters, coumarins and bio-flavonoids (flavones, flavonols, flavanones, dihydroflavonols and isoflavones).

Aside from this high concentration of polyphenols propolis contains resins, balsams, waxes, fatty acids, etheric oils, 16 amino acids, which have been identified, all the known vitamins except vitamin K and all the minerals the human body requires for normal function, except sulfur. These are all natural and balanced by nature (The plants and the bees). Polyphenols are the most abundant and the best studied class of chemical constituents of Propolis, which provide pharmacological and very powerful antioxidant properties to the composition.

What is Propolis used for?

The ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians were very much aware of the healing properties of Propolis and made extensive use of it as a medicine.

In the last decade many research projects and clinical investigations have been undertaken on the prophylactic and therapeutic properties of propolis and of the polyphenols it contains.

Propolis activates the thymus gland and therefore strengthens the immune system

Propolis stimulates white blood cells

Propolis has a protective effect against virus infections of all sorts, cold, flu, ulcers, sore throat, fatigue, respiratory infections, inflammation, ear problems, and gum disease.

Propolis protects against side effect of irradiation

Propolis protects against damage to liver cells

Propolis promotes healing of sores, wounds, acne, blemishes, eczema

Propolis might prevent the development of cancer

Propolis has beneficial effect on the bodies absorption of iron, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium

Propolis protects the body from oxygen free radical damage.

(Diseases associated with free radical damage include cardiovascular diseases leading to Heart attacks, Strokes, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer and Cancer as well poor Liver function).

It is apparent, that Propolis has many nutritional and energetic benefits. In addition this product is being 100% natural and non-toxic. Propolis is one of nature’s most potent and versatile nutritional supplements.

What makes Laprell’s Standardized Bee Propolis Tincture unique?

Laprell’s Standardized Bee Propolis Tincture is unique in that it is completely water soluble and non-sticky. It is also unique in its composition: a uniform, potent and pure multiple propolis extract, standardized to contain consistent levels of polyphenolics, which has a broader range of benefits than any single propolis extract.

In-depth analyses and continuous research is the foundation of all Laprell’s processing operations. Our team of scientists is closely linked to the University of Saskatchewan. We also have close ties with Innovation Place, a leading research centre for agricultural biotechnology; Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada; the National Research Council; the Saskatchewan Research Council; the Protein Oil and Starch Pilot Plant; and the Food Centre.

Most of the products on the market reveal only the percentage of raw propolis or refined resin of the propolis present. This does not say anything about the makeup or the potency of the active ingredients. The results from the use of these types of products are inconsistent, because products vary significantly in consistency, potency, quality and purity.

Thus one brand’s 10% strength product may be more effective than another brand’s 30% strength product due to its variety and volume of polyphenols.

Laprell’s leading the way in that we have introduced a revolutionary new Canadian standard to help you buy the most beneficial product for you. We clearly show the amount of polyphenols that each propolis product contains.

Propolis is a natural product and as such the bioactive compounds of raw propolis collected vary widely. It is therefore very important to us to offer always a uniform, potent, standardized product for medicinal purposes of the same high quality and percentage of active compounds (especially the polyphenolics).

Laprell’s developed a very efficient and high quality process to extract and fractionate the bioactive compounds from raw propolis. We use multiple propolis extracts with different solvents, which are standardized and blended, capturing all the beneficial active compounds in propolis and preserving its potency for long periods of time.

Such, the final tincture has a broader range of benefits than any single propolis extract, which is only possible through the synergistic action of all the elements working together.

The end result is a uniform, potent and pure tincture which has not only anti-bacterial and anti-viral but also a very high antioxidant capacity that exceeds that of grape seed and bilberry extract on a dry weight basis.

Our Commitment

At Laprell’s Beehive Products, we believe that the safety, quality and efficacy of a food product are a direct result of the amount of care and attention that is being used during the manufacturing process.

A strict quality assurance program is carried out at every step of manufacture by third party, independent laboratories.

Laprell’s Beehive Products - Bee Pollen

At the university clinic in Vienna, Prof. Weghaupt and Prof. Gitsch and a team of doctors tested bee pollen on patients which were treated with radiation. After pollen was taken, 75 - 80% of the families tested, made it through the winter, year after year without these diseases reoccurring. At two urological clinics in Uppsala and Lung, Sweden, pollen was tested on prostatitis and the enlargement of the prostate.
