What is the Artichoke Arkocaps from Arkopharma laboratories used for?
Digestion problems are often due to a slowdown in liver function: in fact, the liver actively participates in digestion by releasing substances in the stomach that will transform food into nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body and into waste that will be eliminated by the intestines. If the liver does not function normally, digestion and transit are slowed down and lead to digestive and intestinal discomfort. Arkocaps Artichoke Digestion & Transit Arkopharma stimulates transit and facilitates digestion .

Artichoke is a plant whose flower buds are usually consumed in our diet. It is its leaves which are full of cynarin, sterols, magnesium and potassium which will naturally promote the secretion of bile by the liver and thus stimulate digestion and transit.
