Artichoke Leaf Extract: Artichoke leaf (Cynara cardunculus L.) has been used for centuries to stimulate bile secretion and enhance overall liver function which help to restore gut motility and improve digestion. Cynaropicrin, the bitter compound found in artichoke leaf extract, along with other polyphenols, such as caffeoylquinic acids and flavonoids, have antioxidant and hepatoprotective potential and contribute to the alleviation of an impressive range of GI symptoms. Artichoke works as a complement to the therapeutic effects of ginger to stimulate motility in the stomach and small intestine.
Ginger Root Extract: The therapeutic applications of ginger root (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) are vast and well-documented. The therapeutic effects of ginger root reach far beyond its well-recognized role in alleviating nausea and vomiting and include its role as a carminative, spasmolytic, and as a digestive stimulatory agent. Ginger supplementation is suggested to modulate motility by interaction with serotonergic receptors and stimulate antral contractions in the stomach and consequently accelerates gastric emptying.
