Propolis is a rich source of natural antioxidants and also contains bioflavonoids – powerful antioxidants known to increase the activity of Vitamin C.
Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
Propolis is a natural substance derived from bees, used as a traditional healing remedy by the Chinese, Japanese and South Americans for centuries.
Director of Lifetime Health Australia, Antony Adare said “Propolis is mostly used as a natural support for immune health, but its composition makes it useful for skin health too.”
The reason for this may be the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of propolis.
Antioxidants are well known for health benefits and widely recommended for anyone looking to improve or maintain general good health.
Antioxidants are frequently recommended for improving skin and reducing signs of aging because they help offset the damaging effects of free radicals.
Propolis is a rich source of natural antioxidants and also contains bioflavonoids – powerful antioxidants commonly found in citrus fruits and known to increase the activity of Vitamin C.
Propolis demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity which is also useful for reducing oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
Anti-inflammatory foods and supplements may help manage and reduce pain, swelling and irritation associated with inflammatory conditions.
Incredibly, Propolis also demonstrates antibacterial and antifungal activity and has been used by many cultures to promote the healing of wounds, cuts, boils, cold sores and other skin irritations.
The combination of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties make propolis a popular natural choice for supporting general wellbeing and one that may just have follow-on effects for skin, wound-care and anti-aging too!
Propolis is versatile to use and can be taken orally or applied to directly skin in liquid form*.
Natural Australian-Made Propolis is currently available online from Lifetime Health Australia and will be discounted until May 9th, 2014.
