An ancient herbal treatment used to promote a healthy liver, digestive system and healthy cholesterol levels.
The extract contains the active ingredient, luteolin, the antioxidants caffeic acid, cynarin and cholorgenic acid. These all protect the liver cells from damage and at the same time stimulate the production of bile acid into the digestive tract. This breaks down fats and has an effect on lowering high cholesterol levels and triglycerides.
NOTE: Cynarin is the close botanical cousin of the herb milk thistle which is well know for its positive effect on the liver but has now been reclassified as medicinal.
Studies have shown that cynarin can actually reduce elevated triglycerides, lower total serum levels and at the same time increase beneficial HDL levels thus ideal to help prevent heart disease while cleansing liver cells.
