Mouth Ulcer Treatment Gel

BeeVital - Nature's Laboratory, in conjunction with the Institute of Pharmaceutical Innovation at Bradford University, have developed an powerful natural mouth ulcer treatment using Bee Propolis.

The groundbreaking new product - 'B-Gel' - utilises nano technology in a propolis based bio-adhesive gel. The naturally sticky qualities of propolis combined with it's well documented anaesthetic and anti-microbial properties, make it a highly effective substance for the treatment of mouth ulcers.

Research leader Professor Anant Paradkar, said: 'Propolis is a complex chemical mix and a very useful natural product.

'Propolis has been shown to be anti-microbial, anti-fungal, a strong anti-oxidant, non-allergenic and can boost the immune system. It also promotes wound healing and has anaesthetic properties.

'The main stumbling block in developing products has been the solubility and odour issues, which our formulation overcomes.'

Professor Paradkar’s team has been developing the new technique to purify propolis in collaboration with natural medicine manufacturer, Nature’s Laboratory.
