Intolerance to propolis
The high tolerance of propolis should be emphasized. Only about 1% of all people have an intolerance to propolis, presumably as an allergic reaction to a certain proportion of bee pollen.
Anyone who is allergic to bee stings or bee products should refrain from using propolis - both externally and internally through ingestion or addition to food.
How to test if you are allergic to propolis: Apply the product to the inside of an arm. If a reaction occurs in the next few hours, you should not use any propolis products. In addition, the recommended intake should never be exceeded.
At the beginning of the intake we recommend starting with a fraction of the recommended amount and increasing it slowly so that the body can get used to it and you can be sure that no allergic reaction is triggered.
