Phytoembryotherapy is a branch of phytotherapy that specifically incorporates plant embryological tissues (buds, young shoots, etc.) containing plant meristem cells undifferentiated, fast dividing cells which contain the plants genetic blueprint and material. These embryonic tissues are rich in beneficial phyto-chemicals including: growth factors and plant hormones, enzymes, nucleic acids, oligoelements, and phytonutrients such as polyphenols and flavonoids. These embryological tissues are also utilized because many of the above mentioned components are lost in fully developed plants once chlorophyll is formed. These embryological tissues are also utilized because their energetic components are at their highest levels when they are harvested in the spring the most active phase of the growth cycle.
Intest-gen contributes to the normal function of the gastro-intestinal tract. It stimulates the hepatobiliary digestive functions to help lipid metabolism as well as stimulates the pancreatic exocrine functions in cases of pancreatic insufficiency and malaborption syndromes. It treats chronic mucous membrane suppurations and helps repair the intestinal mucosal lining. This in turn balances the intestinal microflora and enhances proper intestinal nutrient absorption and protects against infectious agents. Intestgen treats intestinal syndromes such as colitis, diarrhoea, colibacillosis and IBD.
