Propolis to help heal bone?
Hi there... My husband recently had 640lbs dropped on the very tip of his thumb and it is badly fractured. I heard bee propolis is speeds healing of bones. Is this accurate? Is propolis better than the other forms? Thank you for your time!
Below is a study I have posted on our site. It sounds like propolis will certainly help heal bones. I'd also suggest increasing calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and vitamin K.
Propolis May Help Treat Bone Diseases
Another health benefit of propolis appears to be that it helps to build and maintain healthy bone tissue.
Scientists recently investigated whether Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester, a very powerful compound found in propolis, could halt or reverse osteolytic bone diseases.
The scientists found that this compound in propolis was very effective at suppressing the inflammatory compounds that cause these bone diseases and even suggested propolis might be a potential treatment for bone wasting diseases.
If you're suffering from bone density loss or have a history of it in your family, taking a daily dose of propolis appears to be a very wise thing to do!
