Gemmotherapy remedy

Concentrated gemmotherapy - fresh bud macerate

Gemmotherapy is a branch of phytotherapy that uses buds and young shoots of trees and shrubs. Gathered in the spring at a key stage of their natural growth cycle, buds and young shoots are freshly handpicked and put in maceration in a solution of water, alcohol and glycerin to extract all their active principles.

HerbalGem’s complexes are a combination of carefully selected single bud and young shoot extracts, acting in synergy to target a specific health problem.

Synergistic effects:

Alnus glutinosa (European alder buds): Acts on suppurative and inflammatory stages. Remedy for the whole ear, nose and throat (ENT) sphere, particularly bronchitis, sinusitis, rhinitis, tracheitis, flu and even pleuropneumonia. Acts on the inflammation of the uro-genital system (candidiasis, cystitis, cholecystitis, leucorrhea and pyelitis) as well as the digestive system (gastritis, colitis, gastroduodenal ulcer). Acts on the growth inhibition of Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus.

Populus nigra (Black poplar buds): Acts on exsudo-steatosic and fibrinosic stages. Remedy for the respiratory sphere (acute infections): tracheitis, bronchitis, abdominal angina, thrombo-angiolitis. Promotes the growth inhibition of Escherichia Coli, Staphylococcus Aureus and Candida Albicans.

The bud extracts of the European alder and the Black poplar are also known for their properties at the circulatory and osteo-articular levels (that is why a medical doctor or health care practitioner should be consulted if the patient is taking an anti-coagulant simultaneously).
