Bee Propolis Study Results Positive for Prostate Cancer
Used for centuries as a natural remedy for many ills, Propolis has claim that it can maintain or improve human health. Ranging from sore throats to allergies to burns.
Also suspected of possessing antioxidative, anti-microbial, anti-ulcer and anti-tumor activities. But this “miracle work of nature” has gained very little acceptance in the medical community because of little to no scientific research. That is until now! The University of
Chicago Medical Center studies have shown positive with arresting the growth of prostate tumors in mice….
Most of us who take bee products already know how beneficial to our health it can be, and actually “feel” the lift in our bodies and minds, but possible aiding in the fight against Cancer, well…that’s a whole new ball game!
With more than 300 compounds in proplis, the chemical composition is quite complicated.
Compounds such as polyphenols, phenolic aldehydes, sequiterpene quinines, coumarins, amino acids, steroids and inorganic compounds have been identified in propolis samples. And still other nutrients that the “brightest scientific minds in the world” can’t even identify. Amazing!
Take a look at the study from the University of Chicago with special emphasis on the antitumor activity….
Beehive extract shows potential as prostate cancer treatment
Proteomics reveals how ancient remedy slows prostate tumor cell proliferation An over-the-counter natural remedy derived from honeybee hives arrests the growth of prostate cancer cells and tumors in mice, according to a new paper from researchers at the University of Chicago Medicine.
In a paper published in Cancer Prevention Research, researchers combined traditional cancer research methods with cutting-edge proteomics to find that CAPE arrests early-stage prostate cancer by shutting down the tumor cells’ system for detecting sources of nutrition.[Read Full Study]

It’s Not Honey, But Bees Make It, and It Fights Cancer
Since it is made of concentrated vegetable matter, propolis is full of antioxidants that can help fight the growth of human cancer cells. Researchers in Brazil recently analyzed red bee propolis to determine if it had antioxidant or even antitumor properties.
They found that propolis is rich in the types of polyphenols that could eliminate free radicals before they have a chance to damage cells. In fact, these polyphenols exerted cytotoxic activity against both throat and cervical cancers.[Read More]
Honeybees play a vital role in much of the food supply through pollination, and are some of the most amazing creatures ever created by nature. Bees provide people with a healthy natural alternative to sugar besides having many other health benefits. Some of the most interesting are the substances they make to use themselves.
Recent research has shown the ability of propolis to suppress the growth of human tumors from neurofibromatosis and cancer.
“If you feed CAPE to mice daily, their tumors will stop growing. After several weeks, if you stop the treatment, the tumors will begin to grow again at their original pace,” said Richard B. Jones, PhD, assistant professor in the Ben May Department for Cancer Research and Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology and senior author of the study. “So it doesn’t kill the cancer, but it basically will indefinitely stop prostate cancer proliferation.”
