Artichoke NEO

(45 capsules Cynara scolymus L. C.N.: 159151.7)

Description

The Artichoke is a perennial plant of the Asteraceae family. Original from the Mediterranean region, it is a crop mutation that over the centuries has split from the common thistle. The active part of this plant are leafs that contain phenolic acids, mainly caffeoylquinic acids, including chlorogenic, crypto-chlorogenic, neo-chlorogenic acids and cynarin (the main active substance); flavonoids and sesquiterpene lactones, among other active compounds.

Properties

Traditionally, the artichoke has been used in all processes involved in digestion due to its:

  • Eupeptic action: promotes correct digestion.
  • Choleretic action: increases bile production.
  • Cholagogue action: promotes the expulsion of bile.
  • Antiemetic action: prevents nausea and vomiting.
  • Aperitif action: promotes appetite.

It has also been observed to reduce blood cholesterol and triglycerides (thus preventing atherosclerosis). Its liver protective action is combined with the antioxidant properties of its natural polyphenols against free radicals.
