Artichoke Extract has a long history of use by herbalists as a digestive tonic.  Modern scientific studies have confirmed that Artichoke Extract can promote healthy digestive function through its ability to support normal bile flow and fat digestion.  In addition, Artichoke Extract contains antioxidant flavonoids (such as luteolin and apigenin) that have been shown to support a healthy vascular system.

A study done by the USDA found that artichokes have more antioxidants than any other vegetable and they ranked very high in a study of the antioxidant levels of 1,000 different foods. Some of the powerful antioxidants in artichokes are quercertin, rutin, anthocyanins, cynarin, luteolin, and silymarin.

Artichoke Extract contains cynarin and another antioxidant, silymarin, that make it very beneficial to the liver. Studies have found they may even regenerate liver tissue. Artichokes have traditionally been used in folk and alternative medicine as a treatment for liver ailments. Now the scientific studies are now proving this to be correct.

Artichokes help the digestive system. They are a natural diuretic, they aid digestion, improve gallbladder function and, as mentioned above, they are of great benefit to the liver. Ingredients in artichoke leaves have been shown to reduce cholesterol by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase. They raise good cholesterol (HDL) and lower bad cholesterol (LDL).
