Globe Artichoke remains a key herb for strengthening liver and kidney function, thus supporting detoxification in chronic conditions such as arthritis, gout, and liver disease.
Because of the biologically active ingredient, cynarin, in globe artichokes, especially with high concentrations in the leaves, the resultant tea is known to protect the liver against toxins.
In the 1970s, European scientists first documented cynarin's ability to lower cholesterol in humans. Its choleretic (bile stimulating) action has been well documented & has led to the popular use of artichoke extract in Europe for treating mild dyspepsia & indigestion - particularly following a meal high in fat.
Artichoke has been used medicinally since the beginning of the twentieth century to improve digestion.
Artichokes also contain cynarin which has been reported to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
*Cautions: At the recommended amount and according to the German Commission E Monographs, there are no known side effects or drug interactions. However, they also state that the use of artichoke is contraindicated in those who are allergic to artichokes and other members of the Compositae (e.g., daisy) family.
