derives from a resinous
mixture that bees collect from botanical sources like buds and tree bark
and subsequently, they work them
through their digestive secretions, adding additional
components (enzymes, wax, pollen) to create a substance used to protect the beehive.
Propolis is mainly composed of resins, balsams, and waxes, which vary in quantity depending on the sources collected. Pollens, essential oils, organic compounds (like flavonoids) and minerals are also present in propolis.
HPLC-ESI-MS: analytical method that guarantees the standardisation of the active ingredient in each batch.
Innovative Dynamic Multi Extraction (Multi Estrazione Dinamica, M.E.D.) technology makes it possible to extract active ingredients in their entirety from resinous matrixes such as Propolis, which are extremely complex to process, to obtain pure substances from inert resins that would otherwise be impossible to acquire with regular static technologies.
The subsequent processing phases make it possible to obtain highly active Propolis thanks to the richness and heterogeneity of its active ingredients and its greater level of accessibility, having been thoroughly cleaned of its inert substances.
The processing also includes a phase for the glycosylation of the polyphenols with the aim of improving its solubility in water and, at the same time, its organic activity.
The efficacy of the product is correlated with the concentration of active ingredients (flavonoids) it contains.
