Since ancient times, aloe have been recorded in Egyptian hieroglyphs and in the San and Khoi rock paintings and has a long history of medicinal uses in traditional cultures. Africa has over 360 species of the genus Aloe linneus of which the Aloe ferox is the most used and commercially produced in South Africa.  The Aloe ferox, indigenous to South Africa, has been found to have a 28% higher level of Aloin and 36% more amino acids than Aloe vera, which is indigenous to America.

The bitter exudate from the plant is accredited with having laxative properties and helps with digestion.

The main active ingredient, the anthraquinone, aloe-emodin, works as an intestinal anti-inflammatory and effective natural constipation releif – natural laxative and colon cleanser.

Unlike chemical or other plant laxatives, which are harsh and direct, the action of aloe is gentler and indirect—in fact, mediated –which prevents the body from becoming “used” to it making it non addictive natural constipation releif- natural laxative.

The exact mechanism is that Aloe Ferox is potent purgative. The compound Aloin is metabolized by colonic flora into aloe-emodin which is an active component. Aloe-emodin exerts its action by disturbing the equilibrium between the absorption of water from the intestinal lumen via an active sodium transport, and the secretion of water into the lumen by a prostaglandin-dependent mechanism (increased water volume into the intestine). By this mechanism, the bowel it stimulated for movement. It does not directly stimulate the muscles, unlike other laxatives therefore it will not cause lazy bowels. Aloe-emodin also will soften the stool by this mechanism, therefore it doesn’t have to be combined with stool softener.

Aloe Ferox is also known to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory as well cleansing properties: antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic effects and it is positioned as having immune boosting properties. Considering these porperties,  Aloe Ferox is known for its detoxing effect.

  • Natural relief for digestive upset
  • Increase bile flow: choleretic
  • Overall positive metabolic effect (balancing cholesterol, blood sugar)
  • Protects liver
  • VEGETERIAN capsule contains 500mg of Full Globe Artichoke

Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) leaf extract was one of the few herbal remedies which the clinical and experimental trials have complemented each other. C. scolymus exibits  CHOLERETIC properties – increases the bile secretion, inhibits of inflammation and ROS, improves liver function, gut microbiota, enhances lipolysis and lipid metabolism, and reduces blood glucose in preclinical and clinical studies.

The artichoke leaves contain a number of phenolic acids, flavonoids (rutin, luteolin), cynarin and sesquiterpenes (especially caryophyllene and beta-selinene). It also contains tannins, sugar substances, inulin, mucus substances, phytosterols (taraxasterol), essential oil, provitamin A and several enzymes.

The efficacy on indigestion has been well documeted. Due to choleretic activity, by modulating bile synthesis artichoke  is widely used recommended for the treatment of indigestion or dyspepsia, especially when the cause may be attributed to slow bile ducts push or disorder in the assimilation of fat.

The efficacious hypolipidemia effect (effects on high choletserol), published in many studies, is due to cynarin and luteolin components in synergy with flavonoids,  that play a crucial role in inhibiting cholesterol and triglycerides synthesis by modulation of HMG-CoA reductase activity, rather than a true inhibiton as exibited  with statin medictaions.  Additional mechanism is trought  increasing the cholesterol fecal excretion due to effects on bile acids productio.  High LDL levels,
together with high cholesterol and triglycerides levels,are a risk factor for various degenerative vasculardiseases, and in particular for arteriosclerosis. Artcihoke is shown to modify cholesterol levels, incluidng total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterole and LDL/HDL ration, without affecting HDL levels.

Hepatoprotective effect of Cynara extract is reported with reducing the cholesterol biosynthesis and the oxidation of LDL. Artichoke has been found to decrease the production of reactive oxygen species, the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins, lipid peroxidation, and protein oxidation and increase the activity of glutathione peroxidase, therefore protects the liver cells.

Current studies suggested that extracts from leaves of cynara scolymus has been discovered to help with metabolic disorders (hyperglycemia, inflammatory disorders and abnormal lipid profiles).

Researches have shown lowering in postprandial hypoglycemia and overall improvement in fasting blood sugar with Artichoke consumption. The proposed mechanisms were: by affecting glucose absorption and as an antioxidant it delays depletion of stomach and bowels which inhibited alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase enzymes in bowels and blocked glucose transportation to blood. On the other hand antioxidants have insulin-like effect and increase glucose absorption in peripheral tissue. Another probable mechanism is influencing beta-cells, repairing damage cells, and stimulating these cells to secrete insulin.
