Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to analyze the effect of propolis honey candy consumption on lactoperoxidase (LPO) activity in stimulated saliva.
Methods: Stimulated saliva samples were collected from subjects before and after propolis honey candy consumption twice a day for 7 days, and the
LPO activity was measured by optical density using a microplate reader.
Results: The LPO activity before and after propolis honey candy consumption was found to be 0.010 and 0.013, respectively.
Conclusions: A statistically significant increase in the LPO activity after propolis honey candy consumption was observed (Wilcoxon test; p <0.05).

Keywords: Propolis, Lactoperoxidase, Saliva, Flavonoids
