BIO30TM New Zealand Propolis

Welcome to the most comprehensive website about BIO30™ New Zealand  propolis, its properties, traditional use and scientific findings.

80 million years of isolation has resulted in unique and higher levels of key bioactive compounds found in New Zealand plants and trees. 

Sourced by bees from New Zealand wild native forest remote from the areas of human’s activity, BIO30™ New Zealand Propolis was found by researchers to contain particularly high levels of the important bioflavonoids and extraordinary high levels of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), compared to bee propolis of other origins.

Questions & Answers

Q: Is propolis the same around the world?

A: No. The chemical components of propolis vary remarkably from country to country, and even between different locations within each country. The variability of propolis is due to the plants available for bees to gather resin. Initially, this variability was a serious obstacle to the standardisation of propolis and its acceptance into the mainstream of healthcare.

However, studies based on propolis from particular locations (such as Professor Hiroshi Maruta's research on Bio 30 propolis from New Zealand) have led to findings based on the characteristics of particular propolis.

Q: How do bees know what to gather to make propolis?

A: Scientists know that the plants honey bees gather resin from for propolis are not chosen randomly. However, how the bees identify the plants is not known. Whatever the process, bees appear to have an ability to find sources of plant substances to convert to propolis that provide efficient protection of their hives from infection. Processed into a form suitable for human consumption, this propolis provides similar protection for us.
