  Artichoke (Cynara scolymus)

Artichoke (Cynara scolymus)

Uses: for gallstones and as a liver and gallbladder bile stimulant; for high cholesterol; for digestive disorders; for irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, and other bowel problems; to support liver function

Artichoke is popular for its pleasant bitter taste, which is attributed mostly to a plant chemical called cynarin found in the green parts of the plant.

Cynarin is considered one of artichoke's main biologically active chemicals. Other documented "active" chemicals include flavonoids, sesquiterpene lactones, polyphenols and caffeoylquinic acids.

Concentration and extraction methods provide the equivalent of 500 mg of artichoke leaf and fruit per milliliter of extract. The flower or head of the artichoke, also known as the heart, is said to be an aphrodisiac, although there is no scientific evidence to support this claim. Artichoke contains iron, phosphorus, potassium, niacin and vitamin A.
