A relative new ( 1920,Belgian dr. Henry) therapy (but rediscovered since buds have been used for their medicinal properties for a long time before) using fresh embryonic tissue (buds, shoots).

It targets especially on the immune system by influencing/regulating the immune globulins .
See various sources e.g. gemmotherapy: a clinical guide Max Tetau. MD.

cert of analysis on request
gemmo- extracts or “gemmos” are always made from fresh plant material either buds ,young shoots or even young roots . Plant species are mainly woody species. Extraction solvent consists of equal (w/w) parts of ethanol 96% en glycerol. A 1:20 macerate is made based on the calculated dry matter of the fresh plant material. The result is the undiluted gemmo (GO). This or the “gemmo 1D”which is a 10 times diluted extract are used in gemmo-therapy.
“Residue after evaporation”.
40 - 55%, mainly due to the glycerol content. Dry matter measurement of gemmos is not as relevant as for tinctures.
Ethanol content of the gemmo (calculated in volume ethanol100%/total volume extract) is around 45-55% depending on water content of the plant material. Ethanol content is chosen for optimal extraction of the plant part used.
Min. and maximum specific weight.
Around 1.000, mainly influenced by the glycerol content.
Woody species take time to get into production since establishment in 2010.
