A.Vogel Artichoke • Milk Thistle Boldocynara® Complex This formula is a combination of Artichoke, Milk thistle, Boldo and Dandelion. Helps to relieve digestive disturbances such as: heartburn, acid reflux, excess burping, bloating, nausea, feeling of abnormal or slow digestion or early satiety . Fat digestion has always been a source of problems. Thermal cures, clysters (enemas) and all those treatments answered the need of many engorged livers. Today, the innumerable food additives, trans fatty acids and fried foods, not to mention pollutants and stress, compromise liver function. Medicinal herbs like Artichoke, Boldo, Milk Thistle and Dandelion are a safe and effective response to this age-old problem. Features : Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) The well-known effects of Artichoke on the liver are probably due to its phenolic acids (chlorogenic, caffeic and cynarine), sesquiterpenes, and flavonoids (scolymoside, cynaroside and luteolin). Artichoke extract relieves dyspepsia by stimulating bile production and excretion (choleretic and cholagogue effects). Artichoke is also effective against hypercholesterolemia.(1) Thanks to the antioxidant effects of the flavonoids, Artichoke, a bit like Milk Thistle, has very interesting hepatoprotective properties.(2) This effect was demonstrated against an industrial solvent, carbon tetrachloride.(3) Traditionally, Artichoke is used as an aperitive, a depurative and a diuretic. The German Commission E acknowledges its benefits in cases of: dyspeptic problems. Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) Milk Thistle is probably the most powerful herb for liver detoxification. It relieves dyspepsia, acts as a hepatoprotective agent and even helps to regenerate hepatocytes (liver cells) in cases of cirrhosis and hepatitis. Milk Thistle is also recommended to treat mushroom poisoning by death cap (Amanita phalloides). It is used to treat liver complaints from loss of appetite to chronic inflammatory conditions. Its main constituents are flavolignans (silybin, isosilybin, silychristin and silydianin) collectively known as silymarin. (See Milk Thistle information sheet) The German Commission E acknowledges its benefits in cases of: dyspeptic complaints; toxic liver damage; supportive treatment in chronic inflammatory liver disease and hepatic cirrhosis. Dandelion (Taraxacum officinalis) Dandelion is a very interesting herb for the digestive system. Its root has cholagogue and depurative properties for the liver. The bitter constituents, collectively called taraxacins (sometimes eudesmanolides), have a beneficial effect on slow digestion. Dandelion leaf is one of the best herbal diuretics. It is also a very good source of carotenes and potassium. The whole herb is used for loss of appetite, dyspepsia, flatulence and feelings of fullness after meals. The German Commission E acknowledges its benefits in cases of: disturbances in bile flow, edema, loss of appetite, and dyspepsia. Boldo (Peumus boldus) Boldo is a South American herb used to relieve intestinal cramps, bile flow problems and cystitis. Boldo has diuretic, sedative (antispasmodic), bile stimulating and antiseptic effects. Its main constituents are alkaloids (responsible for the digestive and liver stimulation) and a volatile oil (responsible for the antiseptic effect). The German Commission E acknowledges its benefits in cases of: mild spastic complaints of the gastrointestinal tract and dyspepsia.
