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.
Planetary Formulas, introduces Artichoke Extract for digestive comfort and liver support. Artichoke Extract is standardized to 5% cynarin and 15% chlorogenic acids 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 Formulas Artichoke Extract contains 500 mg of Artichoke Extract, standardized to 5% cynarin and 15% chlorogenic acids, to insure consistency and maximum potency.
