Natural antibiotic

When does the need for antibiotics arise?

Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections. They work by killing bacteria or inhibiting their growth, thereby helping the body's immune system to deal with infection.

The need for antibiotics stems from their unique ability to fight bacterial infections such as:

  • strep throat
  • pneumonia
  • salmonellosis
  • sepsis (blood poisoning)

Antibiotics not only cure these infections but also prevent bacterial complications after surgical and other medical procedures.

However, the effectiveness of antibiotics is threatened by the rise in antibiotic resistance, making their responsible use and the development of new antibiotics crucial for global health.

So why choose natural antibiotics?

As a natural antibiotic, propolis has gained attention for its ability to fight bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Unlike conventional antibiotics, which usually target specific bacteria and can lead to resistance, propolis acts with a broad-spectrum approach. Its rich composition allows it to fight against a wide range of pathogens while strengthening the overall functioning of the immune system.

Natural antibiotics stand out because:

  • Lower risk of side effects: natural antibiotics may have fewer side effects compared to synthetic ones. However, it can vary depending on the substance and the person.
  • Antibiotic resistance: overuse of synthetic antibiotics has led to the development of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Natural antibiotics can offer an alternative approach by reducing the rate at which resistance develops.
  • Preserving the gut microbiome: some natural antibiotics may be less harsh on the gut microbiome, preserving beneficial bacteria better than synthetic antibiotics.

What to expect when consuming propolis?

  • You can start to feel results within days of using propolis. Streptococci and staphylococci do not last more than two hours in contact with the propolis.
  • Propolis has been used in Estonian folk medicine for several hundred years to treat various diseases such as boils, wounds and infections.
  • There are more than 2,000 scientific papers on the use of propolis, which support the view that hive beeswax is a very versatile and beneficial substance, not only for bees but also for humans, so the likelihood of achieving results is very high.
  • Where possible, support consumption by drinking more water and eating less foods containing preservatives.

Also consult your doctor

It is important to note that you should consult your healthcare professionals before use, to ensure that it is suitable for your specific situation.


  • Allergic reactions: the most notable side effect is the potential for allergic reactions, especially in people allergic to bees or bee products. Symptoms may include rash, swelling or difficulty breathing.
  • Gastrointestinal distress: oral consumption of wheat gluten can cause digestive upset in some people, including nausea, abdominal pain or diarrhoea.
  • Interactions with blood thinners:Tarvac may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with blood-thinning medications because of its mild blood-thinning properties.
  • Pregnancy and breast-feeding: there are limited studies on the safety of taruva resin during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are advised to avoid its use or to consult a healthcare professional before use.
  • Mouth sores: in rare cases, especially when used in the mouth, tarwort may cause mouth sores or irritation.
