Artichoke Extract

For Liver and Digestive Support

gray left   Product Profile  |  500 mg Tablet   gray right

Not only have artichokes been a longtime part of a wholesome Mediterranean diet, but their uses for digestive support and liver health have been documented since the time of the Roman Empire in the 4th century B.C. Recently, scientists began documenting the scientific benefits derived from artichokes. Researchers discovered that compounds such as cynarins extracted from artichokes effectively stimulated bile production, which helps to stimulate healthy digestion, relieve occasional indigestion, increase fat metabolism, support liver health, improve gallbladder function and promote cholesterol wellness.

Planetary Herbals, the company that unites traditional herbal wisdom with modern clinical research, introduces Artichoke Extract – for digestive comfort and liver support. Artichoke Extract is standardized to 5% cynarins for assured consistency and potency of these important compounds.

Beneficial Compounds in Artichokes
Traditionally, artichoke globes and their leaf extracts have been used to promote digestive health. But it is the leaves that contain the highest concentration of beneficial antioxidant polyphenolic compounds such as cynarin, luteolin and chlorogenic acids. Cynarin is what gives artichokes their pleasant bitter taste and was originally believed to be the only active component of artichoke extracts. However, researchers have discovered that the dried extract of the complete leaf is more potent than extracts containing just cynarin. Planetary Herbals Artichoke Extract contains 500 mg of Artichoke Extract, standardized to 5% cynarins to ensure consistency and maximum potency.

Digestive Health, Gallbladder Support, Fat Digestion and Fat Metabolism
The polyphenols in Artichoke Extract stimulate increased bile production in your body. Bile is one of the most important compounds your body can make to keep you healthy. Bile is made in the liver from cholesterol and triglycerides and stored in the gallbladder. It mixes and emulsifies fats to support fat digestion and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. By supporting fat digestion it also supports overall digestive health and relieves occasional indigestion.

Liver Health and Cholesterol Wellness
In addition to having digestive benefits, Artichoke Extract also helps to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. Medical experts theorize that this benefit may be due to the Artichoke Extract inhibiting the activity of the enzyme HMG CoA Reductase to decrease the amount of cholesterol made by your liver. Also, since cholesterol and triglycerides are used to make bile, the bile stimulating activity of Artichoke Extract may also help to remove excess cholesterol from the bloodstream, which promotes your cardiovascular health. The antioxidants and bile stimulating effects of artichoke also help promote healthy liver function.
