Artichoke: a very healthy vegetable with medical properties
Most of us will have once at least eaten artichoke leaves or hearts.
The vegetable is well known for its liver protective function.[active substance: cynarin]
Artichokes can be used for poor digestion and also as an anticholesterol agent.
Like milk thistle, it contains silymarin, the most active compound in milk thistle.
Milk thistle is a very well-known “liver herb”.
The artichoke leaves can be eaten but are often infested with “worms” and should be well examined.
It is also available as a tincture and can be taken in a dose of 40 drops 3 times daily.
There are also tablets/capsules available online.
By the way: artichoke powder [empty some capsules] can be used as a SAFE deodorant! A tiny bit under the axillae.
