I take bee propolis and it is helping. I take 4 a day, but not sure what the amount in each is. What a great article.

Yes, this post could be shortened and the link provided instead...

I've been using 500mg bee propolis that I buy from puritans pride online (very affordable) for going on about 5 yrs now, everyday, and my GI encourages me to continue with it because he says if it works, that's what counts...he also said even if it didn't help cut my daily BM's in half/day (I was going 30 times/day) stopped mostly all my mucus episodes, completely stopped the bleeding and all my lower back pain (which I had severely with every daily BM) that it was still an excellent dietary supplement for IBDers since we don't get all our nutrients via food alone.

Of course I've added other things too which have improved me as well, omegas 3-6-9, fibre supplements, vitamins C-calcium ascorbate and A, as well as probiotics, a completely healthy diet (no more junk of any kind) and exercising regularly.

I've been wanting to try this for some time, but lately I'm trying to take things one at a time to see what really works.  I have high hopes for it.  Since it is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and the like, taking it in combination with a good probiotic or two may help get the gut ecology back inline.  Thanks for the article, I'll read it tonight.

I did a search and it looks like most of these sites want you to subscribe, but I managed to find this one that has the same article without subscribing and you can delete all the other stuff and put in place of it.

Just a reminder...anyone who's allergic to bee stings should avoid all bee products.

You know I was thinking that I wasn't allergic to bees because I've had plenty of raw honey and even propolis in a smoothy once or twice without issues.  Well, I was on a hike with a buddy last week and I see a swarm of bees near a tree, but it didn't appear too close to the road, so though my friend was timid I lead the way and then he yells at me because they started to swarm on me, so I start running trying to shake them off.  I got a little stinger in forehead and took it out.  I've never been bit, so I had to ask him, "Am a swelling now?"  because my sister is and I was worried I might be.   Well, I survived.  Also have a little healthier respect for them.

It's normal to get a bit of swelling from a bee sting (they don't actually bite like hornets do)...

Bee sting allergy symptoms often begin with a dry cough. Then, the eye area begins to itch and swell. As symptoms progress, the patient begins to sneeze and wheeze, and develop hives that itch. These symptoms may be warning signs of a dangerous condition called anaphylaxis. Symptoms include sudden anxiety and weakness, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, very low blood pressure, loss of consciousness, and shock. Anaphylactic shock can occur within minutes and result in death. A patient in anaphylactic shock needs immediate medical treatment.

Doesn't sound like you're allergic to them, especially if you've ingested bee products with no issues.

It's suggested that if you have bee allergies not to take risks in ingesting bee products. It's not completely the same as getting stung, it's a precaution to take is all...some peoples allergies to bees may be more sensitive or dangerous compared to others as well.

Is it ok to take bee propolis whilst taking other stuff like turmeric/aloe/probiotic yoghurt etc?

You gotta wonder if 'too much stuff at once could be a bad thing, like canceling each other out.

I bought some today and want to find out before taking them.

Appreciate any help.

No, it's fine to take it with other things, I take it with probioitics (primadophilus reuteri made by natures way which I highly recommend) and with omegas 3-6-9 and fibre supplements, oil of oregano...my GI assured me that bee propolis was a dietary supplement and great for IBDers to take since we don't necessarily get all of our dietary needs met via food alone. It won't cancel anything out, bee propolis is basically an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral, like honey, you can also enjoy honey and other bee products all at the same time (so long as you're not allergic to bees).

Just keep in mind, what works for some doesn't necessarily work for all, but you won't know until you give it a fair chance, at least 3 or so months.

And, it's 100% non-toxic so there's no build up in your system from it (another reason why taking it daily will have more of an effect).

I will for sure.  Wondering about the dosage though.  The stuff I got is Flora and each cap contains 100mg pure bee propolis and 400mg rosehips.  Says to take 3 per day.

You sometimes wonder if manufacturers 'big-up' the dosage to make run out quicker and buy more.  Especially with stuff you can't overdose on.

If they are telling the truth, at least they're not too expensive at $22 for 90 caps.

I don't know what to tell you, I take pure bee propolis at 500mg 2 times a day which I buy (cheaply) from Puritans Pride online, I don't have any idea with it being mixed with rosehips what you can expect as I'm not familiar with rosehips.
