Ingestion of food interrupts the rather continuous propagating wave supporting intestinal motility. Gastric-intestinal migrating motor complex (MMC) is a cyclical response that involves four phases of which phase III is the most active. While the vagal innervation of the stomach is involved, the MMC carries the peristaltic contraction distally. Both alpha adrenergic and beta cholinergic receptors are implicated in proper function of motility. Motility Activator is a patented combination of artichoke (Cynara cardunculus) and ginger (Zingiber officinale) extracts which has been the subject of human clinical trials.
Key Product Features:
• A unique, well-tolerated, clinically-studied, prokinetic agen
• Supports gastric emptying in a dose-dependent manner.
• Contains a standardized extract of artichoke leaf, Cynara cardunculus.
• Supports gastrointestinal motility and transport.
• Supports gastrointestinal restoration.
Ginger has been a staple of Chinese and Indian traditional formulas for centuries. The upper gastric soothing effects of ginger extracts have garnered the most attention in both clinical and public circles, while its effect on gastric motility is often forgotten or ignored. Since ancient Roman times, artichoke leaf has been a part of traditional European medicine.
Bowel regularity is often the dominant consideration for gastrointestinal motility. Individuals may exhibit normal bowel regularity and also require motility support. Gastric emptying and transit through the small intestine is also important for optimal gastrointestinal health. This migrating motor complex (MMC) may be disrupted by certain pharmacologic interventions, episodes of acute, selflimiting illness, and responses to stress. Motility Activator affects serotonergic and cholinergic neurotransmission, which stimulates healthy gut motility.
