Planetary Herbals - Artichoke Extract 500 mg. - 60 Tablets

Artichoke extract is used throughout Europe to support liver and gallbladder function and relieve occasional indigestion. It works partly by increasing bile production, which may support increased fat metabolism. Planetary Herbals, the company that unites traditional herbal wisdom with modern clinical research, introduces Artichoke Extract 500 mg. – for digestive comfort and liver support. Planetary Herbals Artichoke Extract is standardized to 5% cynarin and 15% chlorogenic acids for assured consistency and potency of these important compounds.

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 cynarin and chlorogenic acids 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.

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 Formulas Artichoke Extract contains 500 mg of Artichoke Extract, standardized to 5% cynarin and 15% chlorogenic acids, to insure 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.
