Q. What is the difference between royal jelly, beeswax, and propolis?
A. Propolis is made from the resins gathered from trees and other plants and then modified by the bees’ own enzymes as they process the material, mix it with beeswax, and make it into a protective antibacterial glue and sealant. Bees use propolis to protect their hive. It contains compounds that can support immune health.*
Royal jelly is a nutrient-rich food made by honey bees to feed both larvae and queens. For larvae, it is only fed for a short time, while queens rely on this food for their entire lives. Royal jelly is considered to have health properties of its own for humans, because of its amino acid, vitamin, enzyme, and trace mineral content, but it is not the same thing as propolis.
Beeswax is often confused with propolis, but they are not the same. Beeswax is used to construct the cell walls of the hive, while propolis is used to seal the hive (it is sometimes called “bee glue”) and protects the hive from bacteria and other invaders. Because propolis is used, in part, to cement the hive together, it can be found combined with beeswax, but the best propolis is beeswax free.
Q. Should I take this product if I'm allergic to honey or pollen?
A. Though Propolis GH2002™ is a purified product, we cannot predict individual allergic responses. While we are not aware of cross allergies for honey, and the product is purified to reomove beeswax, it is always best to check with your allergy specialist.
