It contributes to:

Gemmotherapy – a natural pharmacology – belongs to the realm of phyto-therapy, more specifically embryo-phyto-therapy. Gemmotherapy is a form of embryo-phyto-therapy that uses extracts derived from the buds and young shoots of trees and shrubs rather than the flowers, leaves or roots or whole plant used in herbal medicine.
The significant and unique aspect about this is that gemmotherapy extracts contain developing, fresh embryonic plant tissue (the meristems), whereas herbal remedies contain the developed, adult parts of the plant. As a result, the bio-chemicals they contain are often quite different, as well as the therapeutic capabilities.
