Chrons.net: Did you know that Brazilian Propolis is believed to be the best bee propolis in the world? It is renowned for its unique benefits and potency: it contains the largest amount of biologically available and unique variety of flavonoids. Brazilian Green Propolis comes from rich plant resources and an unpolluted natural environment.
Brasilian green propolis is collected and produced by the Africanized bees from Brazil. What makes it unique is its active ingredient Artepillin-C, an antioxidant with extremely potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and anti-ulcer properties activity.
Now its anti-cancerous effect is being studied internationally. Like any natural substance, its composition is directly dependent on different factors, such as its botanical origin and the environmental conditions of its development. Green propolis of Brazil (GPB) is the only one having in its composition 6 to 8% Artepillin C (ARC)
Research indicates that Artepillin C present in Brazilian green propolis has anti-cancerous effect by decreasing the frequency of pre-cancerous lesions, by inhibition of mitoses of cancerous cells and of angiogenesis within the tumor.

Essential Formulas has just brought a unique Propolis product to market. Not only does it contain Green Brazilian propolis with Flax Oil Omega-3s, but it also contains complete pre-biotic and probiotic support, and anti-inflammatory antioxidant Vitamin E and Astaxanthin.
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid. It belongs to a larger class of phytochemicals known as terpenes. Astaxanthin is produced by microalgae. Astaxanthin, unlike some carotenoids, does not convert to Vitamin A (retinol) in the human body. Too much Vitamin A is toxic for a human, but astaxanthin is not. However, it is a powerful antioxidant.
Astaxanthin is claimed to be 10 times more capable than other carotenoids.
There is simply no other single supplement product combination like this on the market today.
Losing weight without eating less or exercising more sounds too good to be true. But not if you get bacteria to do the work for you. We know that gut bacteria play a vital role in digestion. But now it seems that increasing levels of one type of human gut microbe can help people shed excess weight.
Yukio Kadooka and colleagues in Japan gave 87 overweight volunteers 100 grams of fermented milk – which is used to make yogurt – twice a day, while they continued with their normal diets. The milk drunk by half of the group was enriched with Lactobacillus gasseri. After 12 weeks, these volunteers had lost an average of 1 kilogram, while their counterparts showed no change in weight.
Scans revealed that they had lost 4.6 per cent of their “bad”, visceral fat, which surrounds internal organs and is implicated in metabolic syndrome, and 3.3 per cent of their subcutaneous fat. Hip and waist circumference also went down by an average of 1.7 and 1.5 centimetres respectively The bacteria may cause weight loss by inhibiting fat absorption in the intestine, says Kadooka.
