Strict controls at each state of preparation
The buds and embryonic plant tissues are stablelized at the time of harvesting in order to capture all the plant's minerals, vitamins, natural hormones and nucleic acids. They are soaked in a mixture of glycerin, alcohol and water. Glycerin is selected as an excipient as it allows for better extraction of the embryonic ingredients. We only use fresh buds and shoots, a critical element for ensuring the efficacy of the products.
After three weeks of maceration, the mother macerate is pressed and filtered. All our gemmotherapy extracts are concentrated, meaning that they are not further diluted like the D1 extracts.
All the products are rigorously tested for quality and purity at the different stages of fabrication and are all prepared in our laboratory which is equipped in accordance with HACCP regulations.
Our experience in Gemmotherapy
We have over 20 years of experience in producing high quality gemmotherapy remedies. We have developed proprietary techniques and processes to retain the full set of bud properties in our extracts. We also invest in a substantial Gemmotherapy research programme with The University of Liège and other independent accredited research laboratories in order to continue developing new formulas.
