Science Behind
New Zealand Propolis

Propolis from each country has a diverse range of compounds. Globally, there more than 180 different chemicals in propolis with floral type determining the composition for each country. As not all propolis is the same, scientists look at propolis from different regions to compare their properties.
New Zealand propolis has been widely researched due to unique New Zealand environment. 

New Zealand’s plants and trees are exposed to high ultraviolet concentration requiring them to produce elevated concentrations of bioactive compounds to protect themselves. Consequently, New Zealand CAPE-rich propolis has become of great interest to researchers.

In summary New Zealand Propolis have been found to contain:

          + high concentrations of Phenolic Acids and Flavonoids


          + Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester (CAPE),
             a key Phenolic compound intensively researched by the world’s medical and
             scientific community

          six flavonoids in the largest concentration of any propolis worldwide -
             our test results demonstrate at least  200mg per 1 ml of propolis liquid.
