Propolis has been utilised for its various health benefits in traditional medicine and has been researched as a potential dietary supplement. Studies have found that propolis exhibits anti-tumour, antioxidative, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective properties. However, propolis in its raw form is difficult to use due to its poor solubility in water, susceptibility to oxidation, low bioavailability, and short shelf-life, limiting its application for human consumption unless extracted and formulated.

The team included Dr Ronald Lee, Kashif Maroof, Associate Professor Goh Bey Hing and Associate Professor Siow Lee Fong, led by Professor Gan Siew Hua.
