Artichoke Extract has been reported to have significant liver protection and regenerating effects. Many of the health benefits of Artichoke are attributed to its antioxidant properties which helps protect the liver from damage caused by oxidative stress and inflammation. Other compounds present in Artichoke have been found to regulate cholesterol synthesis and enhance bile acid excretions.
Grape Seed Extract contains a class of flavonoids called proanthocyanidins which have powerful antioxidant effects on the body. Studies have shown that these antioxidant compounds provide protection against oxidative damage and modulate the inflammatory process by regulating the expression of inflammatory cytokines. Grape Seed Extract supports collagen fibers which is critical for blood vessel integrity and cardiovascular health. The combined antioxidant protection provided by compounds found in Bergamot, Artichoke and Grape Seed Extract provide reduced oxidative stress on cell membranes, lipoproteins, and arterial walls which will help balance the inflammatory response.
