AMG Artichoke Extract

Artichoke Extract has many uses. It not only enhances liver detoxification through glucuronidation, it also supports the body in many other ways. Here we demonstrate some of the research that has accumulated with a focus on clinical use. (some emphasis added by Dr. Houston Anderson, DC, MS)

  2. Efficacy of artichoke leaf extract in the treatment of patients with functional dyspepsia: a six-week placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicentre trial.  https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1046/j.1365-2036.2003.01767.x  “Conclusion: The ALE preparation tested was significantly better than the placebo in alleviating symptoms and improving the disease-specific quality of life in patients with functional dyspepsia.”

  4. The antioxidant activity of artichoke (Cynara scolymus): A systematic review and meta-analysis of animal studies.  https://doi.org/10.1002/ptr.6213 “Finding of animal studies indicated that artichoke extract supplementation increased superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione, and glutathione peroxidase level in liver, as well as, decreased malondialdehyde level in liver and plasma”

  5. The antioxidant activity of artichoke (Cynara scolymus): A systematic review and meta-analysis of animal studies. https://doi.org/10.1002/ptr.6073. “ALE supplementation reduced total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglyceride concentrations (p = .01). This study has shown beneficial effects of ALE supplementation on both ultrasound liver parameters and liver serum parameters (ALT, AST, APRI ratio, and total bilirubin) in patients with NAFLD.”
  6. The effects of Cynara scolymus L. supplementation on liver enzymes: A systematic review and meta-analysis.  https://doi.org/10.1111/ijcp.14726 “Artichoke supplementation elicited significant reductions in liver enzymes, especially among patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.”
