Is a company, which has in its DNA more than 30 year experience in working with Propolis and manufacturing natural raw materials. In 2010, B Natural acquired the technologies and equipment belonging to a company founded in 1980 by Dr. Imbriani who developed a Propolis extract partially soluble in water with the aim to make it more bio-available and suitable to different pharma productions (i.e. effervescent tablets).
The target of B Natural is to produce high quality Propolis extracts and other bee derivatives with a certified purity and guaranteed activity. B Natural works with both Brown and Green Propolis, also organic certified.
Propolis is a unique extraordinary natural antibiotic, born from a co-operation between flora and fauna.
Plants secrete resins which allow them to protect their weakest parts, flowers and apical dubs and from external environmental attacks.
Bees collect these resins and they work them out with their saliva thus obtaining Propolis! Propolis is used by bees as a key element in their hives to prevent infections.
Propolis is a solid mass including various components like resins, wax, fatty acids and polyphenols
It is indeed thanks to polyphenols that Propolis is associated with peculiar properties like:
The first European Propolis producer: we served 17 countries worldwide and we produced 65 tons of extracts.
Quality and safety guarantee has always been a key factor of our strategy. The co-operation with famous Universities and international laboratories enables us to check thoroughly all our batches.
In particular, we check critical parameters of this raw material like:
In addition, we have worked out the characterization of active principles by HPLC-ESI-MS in order to assure their content in every batch.
Thanks to years of studies and research, we have been able to fine-tune a patented method of extraction, which allows to obtain the utmost from products that bees have been offering us since dawn of time.
We have licensed our extraction method called M.E.D.® (Dynamic Multi Extraction).
Thanks to the continuous change of the alcoholic grade, it enables to extract all polyphenols with different solubility that would go lost with a standard hydroalcoholic extraction or an even worse water extraction.
The purification process has been also improved and the non-active substances are now present in the final extract in very low percentages.
