Kolesist is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve digestive disturbances, such as dyspepsia, and to help increase bile flow (cholagogue).
This formula combines seven herbs each carefully chosen for its beneficial action on the gastrointestinal tract. Kolesist™ helps stimulate the flow of bile and thus relieves congestion in the gallbladder. It also enhances digestion, especially of fatty foods. Because of its therapeutic effect on the gallbladder, Kolesist™ serves to alleviate digestive upset and disturbances, including nausea, digestive spasms, dyspepsia, and flatulent colic.
St. Francis Herb Farm uses either certified organic or wildcrafted herbs in our Kolesist herbal formula.
Available sizes: 50ml, 100ml, 250ml and larger sizes for Health Professionals.
For all the brilliant yellow profusion of its flowers, dandelion is a perennial plant so common and hardy that it is considered a weed throughout the northern hemisphere. Nonetheless, it has impressive healing properties, and there's a good reason why its Latin name means "remedy for disease."
Now naturalized in North America, marshmallow is a perennial original to Europe and grows, as its name indicates, in damp, marshy places. With roots that are rich in soothing mucilage, it has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb.
