NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:


This randomized and placebo-controlled study examined the effects of propolis on glycemic control, serum lipid profile and insulin sensitivity in patients with type 2 diabetes.

66 patients with type 2 diabetes have been enrolled. They received a placebo or 900 mg/day of propolis for 12 weeks.


The mean change in fasting blood glucose was significantly different between propolis and placebo (-17.76 ± 27.72 vs. 6.48 ± 42.77 mg/dL, p = 0.01).

HbA1c has been also significantly reduced by the supplementation in comparison to placebo (-0.77 ± 1.34 vs. +0.19 ± 1.0 %, p = 0.004).

Regarding the lipid profile, results have shown a significant reduction in serum total cholesterol (p =0.01) and in LDL-cholesterol levels (p = 0.04). HDL-cholesterol and triglycerides plasma concentrations have not been affected by the supplementation.

In conclusion, this study shows that propolis may participate to the control of type 2 diabetes, by improving glycemic control and serum lipid profile.
