Artichoke Extract 500
Promotes Fat Digestion and Metabolism
Artichoke is a great example of a nutritious plant that has benefits
for many of your different body systems. For thousands of years, people have
been using artichoke leaf extract to promote liver and digestive health. And
now there is clinical research to support the benefits of this powerful extract.
Source Naturals, the science company, introduces Artichoke Extract 500., a natural
compound to support healthy fat digestion, cardiovascular function, liver health
and digestive comfort.
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 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 cynarin alone. Source Naturals ARTICHOKE
EXTRACT 500 contains 500 mg of rtichoke leaf extract, standardized to 5% cynarin
and 15% chlorogenic acids, to insure maximum potency.
Artichoke extract stimulates bile production, promoting fat digestion
and metabolism. By stimulating bile, Artichoke supports liver and gallbladder
function and may help relieve occasional indigestion. Medical experts theorize
that Artichoke may also inhibit activity of the cholesterol production enzyme
HMG CoA Reductase to balance LDL cholesterol and trigylceride production in
the liver for cardiovascular support.
