In this series we look at the ingredients in our Perfect Liver Detox Support supplement. If you are new to detox programs, you can start with our article on the Dangers of Toxins.

Artichoke Leaf Extract (Cynara scolymus)

This large thistle-like plant is one of the world’s oldest cultivated vegetables. The component responsible for its medicinal effects, cynarin, protects and regenerates the liver. This daisy family plant is similar to milk thistle in this way, and has the added benefit of strongly stimulating the gallbladder and the flow of bile. Healthy bile flow is essential for the elimination of toxins from the body.

Artichoke leaf:

  • Stimulates the flow of bile to facilitate toxin removal
  • Reduces indigestion, heartburn, and low stomach acidity
  • Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
  • Improves symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

How Much Artichoke Leaf Is in Perfect Liver Detox Support?

Perfect Liver Detox Support contains 300mg of Artichoke Leaf per serving and it is recommended to take 2-3 servings per day (600-900mg in a daily dose).

Why We Include This Dosage of Artichoke Leaf

Artichoke leaf stimulates the flow of bile. Toxins are deposited for removal in bile. A healthy flow of bile improves detoxification. Studies show that the suggested dose of artichoke to enhance liver function is between 300 and 600 mg three times a day.
