Main properties

  • regulator of the nervous system :

    fig bud macerate is a great regulator of neurotransmitters. It has a regulatory action on the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus, two glands producing nervous and hormonal messengers which control the sphere of emotions. It also acts at the intestinal level, where many nervous messengers are produced and perceived. It is particularly recognized for developing, promoting and unlocking the dream function (sleep and dreams). It thus makes it possible to resolve numerous nervous problems, but also the side effects which may result from them, such as skin or cardiac manifestations for example.

  • anti-inflammatory, draining, digestive protector :

    the Fig Tree, in the same way as at the nervous level, will harmonize the digestive sphere through anti-inflammatory, draining and healing effects on the intestinal mucous membranes and the stomach. It is particularly helpful when the wall of the intestine is affected, leading to intestinal hyperpermeability syndrome. Finally, it helps regulate the secretion of gastric juice. The stomach is now considered the second brain, so it is not surprising that Fig bud is as effective on the nervous system as it is on the digestive system.
