What is Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE?
Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE is made of Brazilian green propolis extract that contains exceptionally high concentrations of Flavonoids (>5%) and Artepillin C (>7%), two major bioactive constituents of propolis that are attributed to the antioxidant and immune-boosting properties. It is sourced from Baccharis dracunculifolia grown in Minas Gerais (Southeast region of Brazil), away from industrial or agricultural pollution, by Africanised honeybee (Apis mellifera). Extracted via a proprietary UltraPRO green extraction technology, this unprecedented propolis formula in capsule form is totally free of chemicals and contaminants and yet, it encompasses a wide range of natural compounds, offering a broad spectrum of health benefits.
What is the source and origin of Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE?
Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE is originated from Minas Gerais, a state in Southeastern Brazil, away from industrial and agricultural pollution. Harvested from Baccharis dracunculifolia by Africanised honeybee (Apis mellifera), Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE is reputable for its exceptional high concentrations of Artepillin C, a major bioactive constituent and quality marker of Brazilian green propolis. It is noteworthy that Artepillin C, the prized ingredient present in Brazilian green propolis is unique only to Baccharis dracunculifolia plant species from which it is harvested. Furthermore, only Africanised honeybee (Apis mellifera) has the capacity to produce Brazilian Green Propolis with high amounts of Artepillin-C. Research suggests that propolis from Minas Gerais has highest value of Artepillin C. These excellent origin and source make Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE one of the most potent propolis supplements in the market.
What are Flavonoids and Artepillin C in propolis?
Flavonoids and Artepillin C are two major bioactive constituents that account for many of the benefits attributed to propolis. Among the multiple components of propolis, flavonoids contribute enormously to the antioxidant property of propolis. Antioxidant protection for cells against free radicals and oxidative damage is of utmost importance, otherwise, oxidative damage can lead to many health conditions. Artepillin C, a marker of the highest quality Brazilian Green Propolis, provides strong antioxidant and health-promoting benefits to the propolis. By the use of proprietary UltraPRO green extraction technology, Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE contains extremely high concentrations of Flavonoids (>5%) and Artepillin-C (>7%) to deliver superior quality and potency.
Why Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE in a capsule form?
Propolis mainly comes in two forms – capsule and liquid form. Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE is made into capsule form for ease of consumption. This hassle-free propolis capsule is completely free of the pungent propolis aftertaste and is particularly suitable for those who could not tolerate the strong smell and taste of liquid propolis. Besides, Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE also contains unprecedented high concentrations of bioactive constituents of propolis extract, which are >5% Flavonoids and >7% Artepillin C, compared to typical liquid propolis which contains around 1.7% of Flavonoids and 2.8% of Artepillin C in the extract. As Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE suitable only for oral intake, if you prefer more versatility of using propolis, you can opt for our alternative high quality AFC Brazilian Green Propolis Extract in liquid form to use as a supplement, a mouthwash for throat and oral health, or a topical application for skin to aid wound healing.

What makes Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE superior to other propolis supplements?
Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE is one of the most potent propolis in the market, these are the factors contributing to is superiority:
1. Origin: Sources of propolis include Brazil, China, the United States, Europe and Australia. Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE is sourced from Baccharis dracunculifolia plant in the mountainous regions of Southern Minas Gerais state of Brazil, a rich and unpolluted natural environment from which high quality propolis can be harvested. The Baccharis dracunculifolia plant is the only plant species with the highest levels of Flavonoids and Artepillin C, making it most valuable. On the other hand, propolis from other regions are harvested from other types of plants such as poplars and birches, which contain only Flavonoids, but not Artepillin C. Artepillin C is a major component and highest quality marker of Brazilian Green Propolis, conferring strong antioxidant and health-promoting properties to the propolis.
2. High levels of Bioactive Compounds: Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE is produced by Africanised honeybees (Apis mellifera), a unique species of honeybee with the ability to produce the highest quality of propolis. Unlike other bees which harvest propolis from the external parts of the plants, Africanised honeybees employ a unique method of harvesting propolis by cutting the tip off the buds to collect the complete vegetal tissues which offer a broader spectrum of bioactive compounds and higher efficacy.
3. Standardised extracts and guaranteed potency: While the propolis ingredient of a majority of supplements in the market are not standardised and the amount of bioactive constituents is unknown, Brazilian Green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE contains standardised and ultra-concentrated flavonoids and a wide spectrum of phenolics. Each serving (2 capsules) of Brazilian green PROPOLIS ULTIMATE guarantees >20 mg Flavonoids and >28 mg Artepillin-C, two bioactive compounds attributed to many benefits attributed of propolis.

1. Improve immune system
In this clinical trial, 10 healthy individuals (18 – 45 years old) were orally administered 500 mg propolis in the morning for 13 days to determine the changes of cytokine (TNF-α, IL-6 and IL-8). Cytokines are proteins secreted by immune cells, vital for regulating immune. Results showed that cytokine secretion increased significantly during the 13-day therapy without undesirable side effects. This concludes that propolis could help enhance the immune system when the immune response is insufficient (Forsch Komplementarmed. 6(5): 256-260 (1999)).
2. Provide antioxidant protection
In this clinical trial, subjects were orally administered propolis extract for 90 days; their oxidative status and modulation of lipids were evaluated at baseline (0) and on the 45th and 90th day. Compared to placebo, administration of propolis is linked to an increase of glutathione (GSH) levels and a decrease in thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) levels. GSH is one of the body’s most important and potent antioxidants and TBARS is a measure of oxidative stress. These findings suggested the potential benefits of propolis on oxidative status.
Propolis for Nail Fungus:
Fungal nail infection (onychomycosis) is very common, affecting up to 14% of the general population. It can cause the nails to become discoloured, thickened, distorted, brittle, cracked or the nail may become separated from the nail bed. It is commonly caused by various types of fungi that can enter the nails or the surrounding skin, leading to nail fungus. It is contagious and requires long and difficult treatment with many side effects.
Propolis extract has been suggested as a promising alternative to treat nail fungal. Below are three case studies showing the favourable response of topical treatment of propolis extract in elderly persons affected by nail fungus.
Case study 1:
A female patient (68 years old) had nail fungus in the toe and fingernails. In the past, she had undertaken antifungal treatment, which did not cure the condition. The patient was then applied propolis extract twice a day on the infected nails and there was a remarkable decrease of the lesions after being treated for 1 year. This finding suggests the beneficial effect of propolis extract on nail fungus.

Case study 2:
A female patient (69 years old) had nail fungus in a toenail. The nail appeared yellowish and hollow with presence of local pain. She was treated with fluconazole (antifungal medication), but there was no clinical improvement. After being treated with propolis extract for 1 year, there was regression of white lesions in the nails and culture of the collected samples showed the absence of fungal growth. These findings suggest the effectiveness of propolis extract in treating nail fungus.

Case study 3:
A female patient (65 years old) had nail fungus in the toenail. It appeared whitish and hollow with presence of local pain. She was treated with terbinafine (antifungal medication) for 4 months without any improvement. After being treated with propolis extract for 1 year, there was complete regression of the nail fungus, with no visualised fungal elements and culture of the sample showed negative results. These findings suggest the effectiveness of propolis extract in treating nail fungus.

What is Propolis?
Propolis, also known as “bee glue”, is a natural resinous substance produced by honey bees using enzymes and beeswax to mix with natural sap from botanical sources. It is applied to the entrance of bee hive to protect against bacteria and viruses, and also used as a sealant for cracks on the hives. The compounds of propolis include phenolic acids, flavonoids, esters, diterpenes, sesquiterpenes, lignans, aromatic aldehydes, alcohols, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
Not All Propolis are Equal
Propolis originates from Brazil, China, the United States, Europe and Australia and is categorised into 3 classes – red, green and brown propolis. Among all, the Brazilian Green Propolis from Southeast of Brazil, Minas Gerais state, is the most researched and coveted for its large amounts of phenolic compounds, including Artepillin C and Flavonoids; their synergistic properties deliver extensive health benefits which lower grade propolis could not.
