Q

Propolis is?

A

bee glue, is a natural hive product collected by honeybees and used as a home remedy in folk medicine, which has been introduced and tested for its potential use as a pulp-capping material in rats, humans, guinea pigs, and pigs. propolis extracts from these studies can generally decrease inflammation within the exposed pulp tissue and induce collagen synthesis resulting in reparative dentin formation with an organized tubular structure. The anti-inflammatory property is likely due to various organic constituents within the extract, such as phenols, esters, and flavonoids.
