(More information on Propolis below)
What is Propolis:
This sticky, brown substance is collected by honeybees from tree buds, the resins are full of plant bioactives. In a hive it is used by the bees for the purposes of protection and sterilisation of the beehive. The human science has still been unable to fully discover the mechanism of how Propolis is being born in a beehive.
Propolis has been used for 65 million years by the bees to prevent all types of viruses, bacteria and parasites from entering the hive, and to inhibit fungal growth. This is exactly what allowed the bees to survive for just as long, while many other species became extinct. The name of Propolis comes from the Greek word meaning “defence the city”.
Unique New Zealand Propolis is the world’s best
All varieties of Propolis have strong medicinal properties, however, only unique New Zealand Propolis contains Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester (CAPE). It is known to have antimitogenic, anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties. New Zealand Propolis also contains nine vitally important flavanoids not contained in the Propolis from other countries. Of course, New Zealand Propolis is the most expensive, however, Dr Kirichuk uses only top quality local Propolis collected by trusted bee-keepers, unlike some well-marketed New Zealand brands who used cheap imported Propolis substitutes.
Dr Kirichuk’s Propolis comes from Manuka bush in spray-free Puhoi area in New Zealand
The composition of New Zealand Propolis also varies from district to district, and spray-free area in Puhoi surrounded by native Manuka bush is one of the best sources for Propolis. Indeed, Puhoi is known as the “bees’ paradise”, as Puhoi Valley is well protected from strong winds by the surrounding hills covered by the wild multiflora and native bush. The local Council forbids using pesticides and other chemicals in Puhoi area – it is the only official “spray-free” area in New Zealand.

Why does Dr Kirichuk use alcohol in her extract?
Unlike honey, Propolis cannot be consumed by humans directly in its natural form. Therefore it is very important to choose the correct method of extracting bio active ingredients from raw Propolis. In every official Pharmacopeia Ethanol (potable high strength alcohol) mixed in certain proportion with water is prescribed as the best extractor for manufacturing Traditional Propolis Extract (Lat. Extract Propolis Spirituosum). Dr Kirichuk's Propolis Extract contains alcohol
