Silybum marianum, commonly known as milk thistle, is a flowering plant originally native to Southern Europe through to Asia. Milk thistle is a liver protective herb and may assist in digestive wellbeing. 

Phosphatidyl choline is a phospholipid with a choline head group. Phosphatidyl choline may help to support liver function and general wellbeing.

Taraxacum mongolicum, commonly known as dandelion, is an edible flowering plant with a history of use as a traditional medicine. This herb has been reported to be used for multiple purposes including the increase of bile flow and to assist in digestive disturbance relief. 

Cynara scolymus, commonly known as artichoke, is a type of thistle cultivated as an edible food. Artichoke may assist in digestive disturbance relief. 

Curcuma longa, commonly known as Turmeric, is a flowering plant in the ginger family. Turmeric rhizomes are commonly used as a spice in cooking. Turmeric may aid digestion, help relieve flatulent dyspepsia, act as a liver protectant, increase bile excretion by the liver (choleretic) and stimulate contraction of the gallbladder.

Dear Client

At Sfera Bio Nutrition we are implementing some changes, which we would like to share with you. We are making label improvements and updates and are switching over to gold-coloured child-proof lids. These changes have been phased in over the last year and you may still encounter some of our stock with black lids, and previous label versions that are still in circulation during this time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
