Artichoke has been added to the wish list.
Artichoke - 120 Capsules
A POWERFUL HELPER FOR EASY DIGESTION
Stomach ache, gastric discomfort, nausea, flatulence and even cramp-like pains in the abdominal cavity: Is there anyone who has never experienced that? The cause is very often eating food that is too fatty, or eating too quickly, too late in the day, or simply too much.
In situations of this kind, the thistle-like artichoke can help. The artichoke (Cynara scolymus) is not only a delicious vegetable – but thanks to the health-giving substances it contains, it is also highly effective in supporting the digestion. Traditionally, it is also used against flatulence and feelings of bloatedness.
Artichoke gives a boost to the whole digestive system, fosters the fat digestion process and supports the liver and gall bladder. On the strength of statements issued by the E/ESCOP Commission, which undertakes the scientific assessment of herbal remedies, this can be viewed as reliable fact, provided the product is taken in a sufficient dose. The bile-producing effect of artichoke preparations has been proven in controlled studies on humans. As the flow of bile was found to more than double, the preparations may also be helpful in the case of digestion problems caused by disturbance of the bile production process. It also increases the concentration of bile acids in the bile fluid, which in turn facilitates the fat digestion process. And also when the product is taken over an extended period of time, the digestion-promoting and antispasmodic effects are not diminished, but continue unchanged. Therefore, the effectiveness for the areas of application indicated for all the products of this type, such as “support for the digestive function”, “digestive disorders” or “digestion problems”, can be seen as proven.
It is especially the flavonoids (secondary plant compounds), quinic acid derivatives and bitter substances such as cynarin that are the effective substances and make the artichoke an outstanding helper in promoting health. The bitter substances are at their most effective when they have been extracted from the fresh plant and are taken in the form of artichoke capsules, dragees or tablets. The positive effect of artichoke is only assured when all the active substances contained in the plant are able to work together.
So anyone who wants to do themselves and their unhappy stomach a favour should make sure to try an artichoke product. However, there are some big quality differences between them. It is important that the capsules should contain pure artichoke extract, not just artichoke plant. An extract is always more strongly concentrated and therefore also works better. There should also be no unnecessary fillers or additives (preservatives, animal fats, sugar, alcohol etc.) contained in the capsules.
As you would expect of Natura Vitalis, we naturally fulfil all of these criteria. We also offer the artichoke capsules in high-dose form. Thanks to the high dosage of pure artichoke extract in our capsules, our product ensures that you quickly achieve a positive effect. Additionally, to obtain the active substances, we use only the one-year-old basal leaves as these hold a very high content of the active substances but at the same time are very well tolerated.
So try them and find out for yourself.
