ALTILIXTM is able to counteract the higher fat accumulation in the hepatocyte cell line induced by free fatty acid (FFA).
The mechanisms involved are:
• to modulate the expression of PPAR-γ (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor) involved in lipogenesi;
• to inhibit FAS activity (Fatty acid synthase) in hepatocyte cell.
The artichoke Cynara cardunculus (L.), which is native to the Mediterranean region, has been grown in Sicily since the classical period of ancient Greece.
Traditionally, Artichoke leaves are used in folk medicine for the detoxification of the body and the gastro-intestinal well-being.
ALTILIXTM is a powder extract obtained from the leaves of a particular cultivar named Cynara cardunculus var. Altilis DC, by using aqueous extraction methods.
BIONAP has selected this specific cultivar because of its high concentration of biophenols and its resistance to severe weather conditions.
