Nevertheless, let us see together why, if you choose our honey, you may be certain that you will enjoy not only a highly nutritional quality product, but also a shield for your health.

Propolis can scan the free radicals of oxygen. At the same time, it protects vitamin C from oxidization.
Propolis has been proven to stimulate and reinforce the innate and adeptive immune system, at the same time increasing the levels of interferon, causing cellular and chemical immunity.
As mentioned above, our honey is rich in pollen. Propolis combined with pollen possesses reinforced antihistaminic effect and can assist at the remission of allergic symptoms and the gradual immunization of the human system.
