Gemmotherapy remedies? What the heck is that, right?! Relax, its yet another iconic stress relief option. In layman terms, gemmotherapy is a therapeutic process that makes use of plant bud extracts and other embryonic herbal tissues. Herbal tissues freshly harvested from the live growing plant. This method is used to support removal of harmful toxic elements and compounds from the body.

Our present society causes anomalous amount of toxic elements and compounds that are being ingested by humans and get trapped within the body. Human basic needs such as food and water supplies are now contaminated with hazardous pesticides and manufacturing scraps. Even the air is polluted with carbon monoxide and other harmful gases. Several drugs and medicines turn into metabolites once they enter the body, these metabolites are toxic compounds that accumulate in the body and must be eliminated to avoid further illness.

To understand toxic elimination process, we need to learn how these toxic elements and compounds are released from the body. There are four elimination routes where toxic are transported outside, through digestive system, kidneys, respiratory system and the skin.  These routes rely on the endocrine glands for maximum cellular function.

Gemmotherapy remedies serve to carefully activate and support the elimination process.  Each gemmotherapy remedy is available in 2 fl. oz. glass bottle with dropper and is recommended that you take 50 drops a day or as prescribed by your health care provider.
