Source the unsourceable

Around 450,000 species of higher plants are generally estimated to exist, and only a limited number of these have been seriously investigated. As a result, the plant kingdom is usually recognized as one of the most diverse and abundant sources of potentially active compounds.

Roots are the richest part of plants, yet widely unexplored. PAT’s innovative technology opens up new fields: PAT plant milking®* is a sustainable sourcing solution to produce your exclusive, personalized Exudactive®. More concentrated and more active extracts are produced through plant stimulation and gentle living-root exudation, while preserving plants. Root exudation is a non-destructive process that “milks” the same plants several times a year.
