Nutrient - Artichoke

(Cynara scolymus)

By Nutri People

Known as Globe artichoke (as opposed to Jerusalem artichoke), artichoke’s large, outer leaves contain an active part called ‘cynarin’. Artichoke enhances liver and gall bladder function; thereby helping with a detox programme; and with the digestion of fats in food. It helps support a healthy heart by balancing cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Artichoke also supports balanced water level, digestion and bowel function, and may enhance libido.
