Contrary to Human Growth Hormones, which poses the risk of cancer, Embryonic Plant Stem Cell Therapy does not pose such risk, nor will it affect the function of the pituitary gland. Generally, the hormones plants produce are divided into five major classes: Gibberellins, Auxins, Cytokinins, Abscisic acid, and Ethylene.

Abscisic Acid (ABA) is a plant hormone that allows the plant to adjust to the outside stress it may encounter. It is a sesquiterpenoid (15-carbon) partially produced via the mevalonic pathway in chloroplasts and other plastids. Because it is synthesized partially in the chloroplasts, it makes sense that biosynthesis primarily occurs in the leaves. The production of ABA is accentuated by stresses such as water loss and freezing temperatures.

Auxins were the first plant hormones discovered. They have a fetal hormonal action and are only found in plants, they stimulate cell growth and provide better resistance to disease. The Indole-acetic acid in auxins is what helps tissue regeneration.

Gibberellins (GAs) are a group of diterpenoid acids that function as plant growth regulators influencing a range of developmental processes in higher plants including stem elongation, germination, dormancy, flowering, sex expression, enzyme induction and leaf and fruit senescence. Gibberellins stimulate RNA and protein synthesis. This was found in the buds and not in the whole plant. Drainage, meaning Detoxification, by means of organ stimulation, tissue excitation & toxins elimination.

Cytokinins are protective factors to the cells as they undergo cell mitosis (cell division).  As cells replicate the DNA is constantly being copied.  Without cytokinins there is, on occasion, mistranslating of the DNA molecules, however, with cytokinins present the DNA is replicated perfectly every time.  Cytokinins are the subject of current research. As a matter of fact, these molecules have just begun to catch the eye of researchers, but it looks like they may play a key role in fighting sickness and disease and in helping with longevity.

Ethylene, unlike the rest of the plant hormone compounds is a gaseous hormone. Like abscisic acid, it is the only member of its class. Of all the known plant growth substances, ethylene has the simplest structure. It is produced in all higher plants and is usually associated with fruit ripening and the triple response. Ethylene is defined as the only gaseous plant hormone, responsible for the fruit ripening, growth inhibition, leaf abscission, and aging.
