Genestra Bilberry Young Shoot- 0.5 fl oz (15 ml)
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 plant’s 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.
Additional product info: Bilberry is a remarkable plant that grows in acidic and silicic soil. In the fall, violet-black colored berries grow and are highly sought after by nocturnal birds to help stimulate their night vision.
Historically, Bilberry has been used for its astringing properties. These astringing properties have been used for intestinal tropisms specifically vomiting, colitis, infectious diarrheas, and for reducing gastrointestinal fermentation and putrefaction. Due to its endocrine balancing effects on the pancreas and liver, especially considering the rich concentration of vasculoprotective anthocyanosides and antioxidant properties, it is specifically beneficial to help with protecting the microvascular and ocular circulation. Lastly, it has a strong exocrine anti-infectious action with antibiotic-like properties with vermifuge activity and urinary antiseptic actions against colibaccilosis.
