It is used to reduce vibration, prevent diseases, parasites and fungal growth from breaching the hive. It can seal entrances, increase defences or mummify foreign invaders that get stuck within the hive and cannot be carried out by bees.
Propolis is also called bee glue.
Consumption of Propolis by humans has been linked to preventing types of cancers, including blood and liver cancer. Containing as many as 300 active compounds, Propolis can be used to fight cell division and prevent the spread from one organ to another.
