Celandine's long history of use to stimulate bile secretions has recently been confirmed by German researchers.  It seems to act to stimulate the secretion only, and has not been shown to stimulate the synthesis of bile.  This would be a good addition to bile producing, gall bladder, and liver formulations.


Celandine is available as a powder, or a powdered extract.

Why it is Recommended

It is "Approved" by the German Commission E for spastic discomfort of the bile ducts and gastrointestinal tract.
