Artichoke is a very popular and tasty vegetable. The inflorescence heads are edible, whereas the leaves constitute a valuable herbal raw material. They contain many biologically active substances that have a positive effect on the human body. The most important of them are cynarine and chlorogenic acid, as well as apigenin, luteolin, silymarin, sterols and mineral, which also show an important therapeutic effect.
Preparations based on artichoke provide excellent support for the liver and digestive system. They exhibit cholagogic activity and facilitate digestion, especially of high-fat dishes. They alleviate from typical gastric complaints, such as heartburn, feeling of heaviness after a meal, reflux, bloating. Studies also show that administration of artichoke leaf extracts correlates with lowering cholesterol and calming inflammation in the body, which translates into a lower risk of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
The most effective action and full potential of artichoke properties are ensured only by the highest quality leaf extracts, standardized for the content of cynarine. A full range of this type of preparations can be found in our store's offer.
