Artichoke Extract has been shown to enhance detoxification reactions as well as protect the liver from damage. This combination of effects is very important to healthy liver function. During detoxification in the liver the toxic substance is often initially converted to an even more toxic form. Without adequate protection, every time the liver neutralizes a toxin, it is damaged in this process. Artichoke extract has been shown to provide the valuable protection. Once the liver has modified a toxin, it needs to be eliminated from the body as soon as possible. One of the primary routes of elimination is through the bile. However, when the manufacture of bile is reduced or the excretion of the bile is inhibited, toxins stay in the liver and body longer. Another benefit of Artichoke is that it acts as a choleretic. A choleretic is a substance that increases the formation and flow of bile. Bile acids are natural emulsifying compounds that form complexes with fatty materials in the gut to aid in their assimilation. Bile also plays an important role in softening the stool by promoting the incorporation of water. Without bile the stool can become very hard and difficult to pass. It has also been helpful for people who have irritable bowel syndrome disorder of the large intestine characterized by some combination of: abdominal pain, altered bowel function, constipation, or diarrhea.
Beet Root has a cleansing effect on the colon and the liver.
Slippery Elm has the ability to neutralize stomach acid. It acts as a buffer against irritations of the mucous membranes. It also assists the activity of the adrenal glands and boosts the output of a hormone called cortin, which helps send a stream of blood building substances through the system.
