Press release   •   Mar 12, 2015 10:42 GMT

Probably your grandparents called it with common names such as "wet-a-bed", "yellow star" or “dandelion", names popular in country tradition: we are talking of Taraxacum (Taraxacum officinale), a plant particularly used in herbal medicine for its numerousproperties.

The draining properties of its roots, which its common name of “wet-a-bed” alludes to, make it often used in the formulation of supplements specifically conceived for facilitating the disposal of body fluids and the general body detofixication.

As a matter of fact, the roots of taraxacum do not only have draining properties but also other beneficial effects, as they can support:

  • body detox function;
  • digestive and hepatobiliary function.
  • regularity of bowel movements.

This perennial herbaceous plant, widespread throughout Italy and easy to find in meadows, in the medieval period was used to support the liver, probably due to the yellow colour of its flowers, similar to that of bile.

In general, for therapeutic purposes, you can find it in the form of dry or liquid extracts, herbal teas or mother tinctures, and it is used alone or, more frequently, in synergy with other herbs and nutrients.

The Italian company has been trading since 1977, starting up as a simple herbalist's shop. Since then, it has earned the trust of tens-of-thousands of regular clients by working hard to deliver a top-notch products.

All food supplements are 100% natural (they do not contain parabens, mineral oils [paraffin oils], synthetic perfumes, and, where possible, preservatives) are produced and manufactured directly by the company in Italy to strict standards and have been notified to the Italian Ministry of Health.

The manufacturing techniques deployed by Dr Giorgini are ancient and groundbreaking at the same time, as they aim at preserving both the natural active ingredients, the core of our health and well-being, and the energy of life, a concept around which the whole company philosophy revolves. This to create a nutritional energy balance to stay healthy and fit, both physically and psychologically.
Starting from a selection of raw materials that, besides the usually required high quality standards, must not be exposed to radiations, and, continuing with the production chain, all those techniques that may reduce or destroy the energy of life still present in plants (e.g.: heat and pressure above the environmental range values, ultrasounds, microwaves, strong acids and bases ...) are accurately avoided. Thanks to this manufacturing technique, the energy of sunlight "fixed" into a plant by photosynthesis is saved and present in all Dr Giorgini products.

Dr Giorgini production unit, 500 m above sea level and out in the open, allows collecting water from rain and dew, to be then used in manufacturing processes, instead of the common deionised water, coming from waterworks and springs.
Besides food supplements, Dr Giorgini line also includes body, hair care, face and sun cosmetics, face and body cleansers, insect repellent and after-bite products, which are formulated using only top-quality ingredients and scented with only natural essential oils and contain no artificial fragrances.
