Here's a fun, easy and light way to include bee propolis in your diet, especially during the upcoming summer months. If you’re not sure what bee propolis is: it’s a substance that bees create to cover up any holes in their hives that may make the hive susceptible to bacteria or viruses. Organika uses a locally-sourced bee propolis from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada.
Humans have been using bee propolis in their diets for centuries and it’s well known for it’s incredible work with the immune system; mainly used to help improve inflammations in the body such as a sore throat and cough. On its own, bee propolis has amazing antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties. With the lemonade, you're adding antioxidant support from the lemon juice and honey. This is a powerhouse combination made into a delicious drink that you can enjoy with friends and family!
