Propolis found to improve immunity, reduce free radicals and attenuate chronic inflammation in HIV patients

An article published in the journal Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy demonstrates the beneficial effects of consuming 500 milligrams (mg) per day of propolis for people living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The authors found that the group given propolis, unlike the group given placebo, displayed a significant reduction in plasma levels of malondialdehyde, a marker of oxidative stress. Total antioxidant capacity increased slightly in the same group, reflecting the direct combating of free radicals.
