Abstract

Dentre as matérias primas extraídas da apicultura, o mel é considerado o produto mais fácil de ser explorado, sendo também aquele com maiores possibilidades de comercialização pois, além de ser um alimento, pode também ser utilizado na indústria farmacêutica e cosmética devido às suas conhecidas ações terapêuticas. Sabe-se que são diversas as propriedades medicinais dos méis, nesse sentido, essa revisão procurou avaliar a literatura científica da última década a respeito das propriedades biológicas associadas ao mel e foi verificado que este produto vem sendo utilizado em diversos tipos de linhas terapêuticas, notadamente devido às suas atividades antimicrobiana, antioxidante e cicatrizante. Além disso, há também estudos demonstrando seus efeitos antiproliferativos e antimetastáticos em tumores cerebrais bem como estudos sugerindo um efeito sinérgico de diferentes atividades biológicas quando se usa a combinação de méis de origens distintas.
