Boldocynara consists of extracts of four different fresh herbs. The main ingredient is artichoke (Cynara scolymus), a plant that Alfred Vogel considered one of the best liver cleansers. Artichoke helps to get the gall flowing, regulates cholesterol and helps stimulate liver function while being a tonic for the liver at the same time.
Dandelion, boldo and mint help to support the cleansing action in the liver by gently assisting with digestion, flatulence, spastic colon and constipation. This was definitely a formula which Vogel counted on to help support liver function.
To naturopathic doctors the body sometimes indicates sluggish or overloaded liver and kidneys long before pathological tests do.
