Bee Propolis long term
by Peter Booth
(Chesterfield, Derbyshire UK)
How long do you need to take bee propolis for? Is it a case of taking it every day as a preventative medicine or only when symptoms appear? Would there be any side affects with taking it every day or could the body get used to it and negate any effect it has on illness, a question of overkill?
Great question Peter. You certainly can take propolis long term as a preventative. If you don't want to do that, propolis does work quickly if any symptoms occur (such as cold and flu). If you do decide to take it long term, be sure to take some time off every once in a while. For example, 5 days on, one or two days off. Or three weeks on, one week off.
Hope that helps,
