Motility PRO is a combination of ginger (Zingiber officinale) and artichoke leaf extract (Cynara cardunculus L.) delivered at a clinically proven dose to restore gastric motility. This distinctive blend of bioactives promotes contractions in the migrating motor complex, helping to restore proper motility, which ensures the steady flow of food particles and bacteria through the small intestine. In addition, it provides support for improved digestion and relief from temporary gas, bloating and associated GI discomfort.
Artichoke Leaf Extract (Cynara cardunculus L.)
Artichoke leaf (Cynara cardunculus L.) has been used for centuries to stimulate bile secretion and enhance overall liver function which help to restore gut motility and improve digestion. Cynaropicrin, the bitter compound found in artichoke leaf extract, along with other polyphenols, such as caffeoylquinic acids and flavonoids, have antioxidant and hepatoprotective potential and contribute to the alleviation of an impressive range of GI symptoms. Artichoke works as a complement to the therapeutic effects of ginger to stimulate motility in the stomach and small intestine.
Ginger Root Extract (Zingiber officinale Roscoe)
The therapeutic applications of ginger root (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) are vast and well-documented. The therapeutic effects of ginger root reach far beyond its well-recognized role in alleviating nausea and vomiting and include its role as a carminative, spasmolytic, and as a digestive stimulatory agent. Ginger supplementation is suggested to modulate motility by interaction with serotonergic receptors and stimulate antral contractions in the stomach and consequently accelerates gastric emptying.

Motility in the GI tract describes the movement of food and other substances through the stomach, small intestine, large intestine and eventually out of the body. In between meals, the migrating motor complex (MMC) is a cycle of peristatic movement that acts as an inter-digestive housekeeper of the GI tract. The MMC facilitates transport of indigestible substances and bacteria from the stomach and small intestine into the colon, inhibiting the backward migration of colonic bacteria and an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. It has been shown that motility impairment typically results in small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). MMC activity varies widely across individuals, and can become impaired for several reasons, including stress, medications, sluggish thyroid function and even autoimmunity associated with cytolethal distending toxins.
When it comes to the most sensitive patients with SIBO or multiple symptoms of GI discomfort, it is important to choose a proven solution that stimulates motility yet is gentle and effective. Clinical studies on the standardized combination of ginger and artichoke extracts in Motility PRO have demonstrated a unique ability to stimulate gastric motility and relieve temporary GI discomfort.
