The Gemmotherapy (or more specifically Embryophytopherapy) is a medical practice based on the healing properties of vegetative embryonic tissues. This branch of Phytotherapy employs macerates of fresh plant material which is in the growing phase, such as young shoots, buds, young rootlets etc.

The embryonic plant tissues are the source of the plant’s unique capacity for permanent growth and renewal. They contain the necessary active substances required for the development of the new plant parts after the winter rest, which cannot be found in the adult plant: enzymes, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, nucleic acids, hormones, growth factors.

The gemmotherapy remedies concentrate all the active principles and therapeutic properties of the whole plant (leaves, flowers, fruits) and are able to interact with the human body and its pathology, contributing to its well-being and therapy.

The gemmo-extracts are intended for internal use by dissolving prescribed drops in a some water.These are products of 100% herbal origin, practically with no side effects, even in the case of prolonged use.
