    What is so special about AFC Brazilian Green Propolis?

     

    The grade of propolis is dependent on its botanical origins and the type of bees that produce it. The Minas Gerais forests are densely populated with rosemary (Baccharis dracunculifolia) and eucalyptus-type trees from which high-quality green propolis can be produced. AFC Brazilian Green Propolis is collected from the unexpanded leaf buds of Baccharis dracunculifolia plant by the Africanised honeybee. Only this bee specie has the capacity to produce Brazilian Green Propolis with concentrated Artepillin-C, a powerful constituent not found in propolis from other regions. Artepillin-C has strong anti-bacterial fighting properties and is well-known for its ability to suppress tumor growth.

     

    How to identify propolis with Artepillin-C?


    Ethanol extract of Brazilian Green Propolis has a characteristic of an unique pungent taste. Studies have indicated that the pungent taste is due to the presence of Artepillin-C. It strongly stimulates hTRPA1 channels, which are activated by pungent foods, such as wasabi (its main pungent ingredient is AITC), a typical pungent food in Japan. Research also indicates that Artepilin-C can be considered a good marker with respect both its functional quality and effectiveness. Hence, propolis products without such pungent taste may indicate the absence of Artepillin C.

    Brazilian Green Propolis is produced in AFC Japan’s GMP-certified facilities using the latest technologies to produce the finest quality end product. The bio-active constituents and sterility of Propolis are preserved using state-of-the art four-step extraction:

     


     


     

    Well-documented traditional use, well-researched scientific studies

    In ancient Rome, Propolis was used as a drug to reduce swelling and relieve pain. The medicinal properties of Propolis are well-documented in “Naturalis Historia” – the largest encyclopedia of ancient world, and in the book “Regarding Medical Matters” by the Dioscorides, the famous physician of ancient Rome. In South Africa and the former USSR, Propolis is also widely used for various health applications including healing, and treatment of tuberculosis and lung problems. In ancient Egypt, Propolis was used to treat infections and swelling, and to accelerate hair growth. 

    The traditional usage of Propolis has been backed with scientific evidence, from research journals documenting its health benefits and application uses. In Japan, Brazilian Green Propolis is extensively used in foods and beverages with the aim of improving health and immunity. A research conducted by the University of Sao Paulo and published at Jan 2011 demonstrated the promising antioxidant effect of Brazilian Propolis against oxidative stress of UV on skin. More recently, the 14th International Congress of Immunology 2010 presented research on the effects of Brazilian propolis in ameliorating severity of collagen-induced arthritis.

    "Propolis” originated from the Latin words “pro” for front and “polis” for city. Put together, it means a castle wall to prevent enemies’ incursion. Propolis is a strong resinous substance from plants which bees used to seal their hives. The adhesive smoothens the internal walls of the hive and protects the entrance against intruders.

    It protects the entire honeycomb from foreign invasion. Research studies have shown propolis to be extremely beneficial in promoting good immune health in humans.
