Omeolipid is an association of Artichoke (Cynara scolymus L.), Caihua (Cyclanthera pedata (L.) Schrad.) and Fenu greek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)
that can be used in food supplements.
Omeolipid combines the traditions of three different countries:
Artichoke is a Mediterranean plant; its cultivation in Europe dates back to ancient Greece and Rome. Its active substances (caffeoylquinic acids, flavonoids, sesquiterpene lactones) are concentrated in the leaf, acting as digestive, colagougue, hepatoprotective and depurative.
Caihua is a traditional plant from South America; the fruit contains flavonoids and in Peru its use is documented since 3700 b.C. as hypothensive, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory and hypocholesterolemic.
Fenu greek is a milestone of the Ayurvedic medicine, alleviating kapha and vata. The seeds contain saponines, coumarines, flavonoids and alkaloids. They have hypocholesterolemic, diuretic, diaphoretic, carminative, hypoglycemic, demulcent properties and they are traditionally used to treat obesity and diabetes.
