  Glue Honeybees Use on Hives May Protect Teeth from Plaque

Honeybee hives may hold a secret to fighting cavities, researchers say. Michel Hyun Koo and his colleagues at the University of Rochester and the State University of Campinas in Brazil have determined that propolis—the sticky material bees concoct to hold their hives together—contains potent anticavity ingredients. Propolis, the composition of which can vary greatly depending on the location of a honeybee hive, contains more than 100 compounds. The most promising anticavity propolis so far comes from hives in southern Brazil, which Koo found after studying more than 2,500 Brazilian bee samples. The active ingredients in propolis, the scientists say, inhibit the action of glucosyltransferase (GTF) enzymes, key players in the buildup of plaque on teeth, as well as enzymes produced by the plaque-building bacteria Streptococcus mutans.
