PRODHYGEM® FIT – A firmness solution

Gemmotherapy (jem″ther′ă-pē) [L. gemma, bud, gem + therapy]. Any form of herbal or plant-derived therapy that consists of or is made from the buds and sometimes other very young parts of plants. This ancestral science uses the vital, concentrated molecules located in the buds’ heart. Buds are made of rapidly dividing stem cells, thus containing all the energy of the plant.

PRODHYGEM FIT is an extract from chestnut and horse chestnut is inspired from the power of Gemmotherapy. These plants are specifically renowned for their venous tonic and vasoconstrictive properties. They are rich in minerals, oligo-elements, vitamins, growth factors and enzymes.
