ARTICHOKE INFORMATION SHEET


The Globe Artichoke takes its name (Cynara scolymus) from the Latin canina (or canine) because the spines on its fruit were believed to look like a dog?s tooth.

It is a perennial plant. The flower heads, picked before maturity are the dinner time vegetable fare.


HISTORICAL OR TRADITIONAL USE

The Greeks cultivated Artichoke as a garden herb, introducing it as a delicacy from its native home of North Africa.

Dioscoride (1st Century AD) recommended applying the masted roots to the armpit or elsewhere on the body, to sweeten offensive odours.


BENEFITS & USES TODAY

Extracts of globe artichoke leaves contain substances that may help to maintain a healthy digestive system and healthy liver.

Over the years, various studies worldwide have also shown that people?s blood cholesterol levels dropped after eating artichoke.


THE SCIENCE

Whilst Artichoke?s fleshy fruits are eaten as a delicacy, it is the leaves that are now known to be the richest source of cynarin - the active ingredient responsible for the herbs healthcare benefits.

One key action of Artichoke is the stimulation of digestive secretions, especially bile. This makes artichoke useful for the treatment of gallbladder problems, nausea, indigestion5 and abdominal distension2, with the added benefit that it lowers blood cholesterol levels1,3.
