Manuka South® Extra Strength Propolis – 2000mg
Manuka South® Extra Strength Propolis is the best option for anyone looking to get more bee propolis benefits without the hassle of swallowing multiple capsules a day.
While a smaller dose of bee propolis daily is sufficient to produce supportive health benefits, a high strength propolis softgel is better suited for anyone who is looking to specifically target a concern in a shorter duration of time.
Because our extra strength softgel is in a super concentrated form, this product is mainly recommended for those who are looking to produce a result at a faster rate and therefore it is not necessary to take this supplement daily for long period of time.
Certain health conditions require more immediate attention and require higher doses of supplements in order to have a therapeutic effect.
The only people not recommended to take propolis are people who are allergic to bees.
