Safety Of Propolis Consumption To Treat Bronchitis?
I have been suffering from chronic bronchitis for 7 years … I used to feel better when I was consuming propolis (saliva of bees) but had long been vacuum. Is propolis safe for my illness? The product that I want to buy is Melia Propolis. Thank you in advance
Thank you for your question.
In general, bronchitis is an inflammatory disease of the lungs caused by irritants that are inhaled into the lungs, such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, firewood smoke, etc. Bronchitis itself is a disease that can hardly heal, it's just that the symptoms can be reduced.
Bee propolis or glue is a substance produced by honey which is collected from the tips of young leaves and mixed with saliva that is used to repair the hive. According to research, propolis contains the most powerful antioxidants to fight free radicals, and 6-7 times more powerful than vitamin C.
Propolis itself also has ethanol which is useful for the liver, which the liver functions to detoxify chemicals or poisons in the body. In addition, there are several functions of propolis according to research, including:
as a high antioxidant material can overcome diseases associated with bacterial infections can overcome diseases associated with fungal infections as anti-inflammatory as anti-cancer as detoxification Propolis itself is generally safe to use, but there are some effects that need to be noticed, such as people who are allergic to bee production, then the use of propolis is recommended to be avoided. But if there is no allergy, propolis is very safe to use. If you experience a rash, itching, swelling and tightness after using propolis, then immediately come to the doctor for further treatment.
