Artichoke Extract can help people who have had their gallbladder removed since your liver cells are continually making bile, whether you have a gall bladder or not. Once the gall bladder is removed you lose the ability to store and concentrate bile in the gallbladder and bile continually flows through the bile ducts into the small intestine. Artichoke extract improves this bile flow and can then help to improve overall digestion. Wishing you healthy digestion ahead!
