A valuable supplement for patients with gastro-intestinal problems, liver dysfunction and moderately raised cholesterol levels.
Increases bile flow and protects intestinal mucosae. It generally protects the liver and improves liver function and in this manner lowers cholesterol. In clinical trials, artichoke leaf extract has been shown to lower cholesterol levels on average by 11,5% whilst triglycerides declined by 12,5%. (Townsend Letter for Doctors , May 2002, p97). Through enhanced bile flow it also promotes excretion of toxins. Another major benefit of artichoke has been the finding of its role in the dyspeptic syndrome (irritable stomach, nervous gastro-intestinal upsets, flatulence and irritable bowel syndrome ( Phytomed 1997, 4 : 369).
