Milk thistle and artichoke as a high-quality source of bitters
Milk thistle has already been used in antiquity as a natural remedy for liver problems – and is now making a pleasing comeback. In addition to the valuable flavanonol derivatives silibinin, isisilibinin, silicristin and silidianin, the plant contains high-quality natural bitter substances.
Our artichoke extract is extracted from the leaves of the artichoke. The artichoke also contains high-quality bitter substances and flavonoids.
What are bitter substances?
Natural bitter substances have a long history. Even in the representations of Hildegard von Bingen herbs of this kind play a major role. Not only because bitter substances stimulate digestion, but also because vegetables in past times contained much more bitter substances. Unfortunately, this was a thorn in the side of industry. And so our food evolved to sweeten. Natural bitter substances gradually disappeared.
Bitter substances disperse enzymes and improve the absorption of various nutrients. By releasing digestive juices, our organs are immediately prepared for their work. Overall, medicinal herbs with bitter substances act as a turbo for our digestive system.
