BIO-Vega’s REGU-BILE capsules are primarily composed of dandelion, which Arab doctors mentioned, more than 1 000 years before our era, the medicinal virtues against the disorders of the liver, the gallbladder, but also of the fever, the anemia or water retention. Today, it is mainly used to stimulate the flow of bile (cholagogue).
Non-medicinal ingredients are added to increase the bioavailability (absorption by the digestive system) of the active ingredients.
Adults : 1 capsule three times daily (provides a dose equivalent to 3 250 mg of Taraxacum officinale).

ABOUT THE MEDICINAL INGREDIENTS
Part of a large genus of flowering plants in the asteraceae family, the dandelion, or Taraxacum officinale, is a perennial native to europe and asia, where it’s believed to have evolved into its present-day form some thirty million years ago. The dandelion gets its name from the french “dent-de-lion”, or “lion’s teeth” which references the jagged edges of leaves at its crown that resemble the teeth of a lion. Today, dandelion species can literally be found throughout the world. Though widely seen as an invasive weed that takes over lawns and gardens, the dandelion has also long been prized for its potent therapeutic properties in both traditional native american and arabic cultures, as well as in ancient and contemporary europe and china. Dandelion contains numerous active compounds that account for its therapeutic effects, particularly an abundance of bitter active ingredients, terpenoids, flavonoids, and sterols (taraxin and taraxacerin). Other terpenes and sterols include beta-amyrin, taraxasterol, and taraxerol, as well as free sterols (sitosterin, stigmasterin, and phytosterin) whose structure is related to the structure of bile. It has been shown that taking Taraxacum officinale orally induces an increase in the secretion of bile. Dandelion is a medicinal herb that is considered very well tolerated and safe, with few secondary effects reported in the literature. Taraxacum officinale is today included in many official pharmacopeias, such as those of India, Austria, Germany, and Great Britain. The German Commission E has recognized its use, particularly for improving biliary functions. ESCOP has approved the use of dandelion root for stimulating biliary and hepatic functions, and Health Canada has recognized its traditional usage as a cholagogue and choleretic.
