A delicious food that can act as a digestive bitter, lower cholesterol, and help to feed beneficial gut bacteria...

The globe artichoke (Cynara scolymus) is a type of thistle that originated in Southern Europe. The flower bud is harvested and eaten around the world, although in North America the outer layers are often removed and only the heart of the artichoke bud is eaten. The antioxidant capacity of artichoke flower heads is one of the highest reported for all vegetables. The major active constituent in globe artichokes is called cynarin, and is responsible for the slight bitter taste.

Artichokes offer a rich source of fibre, vitamins and minerals including: vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin B6, B12, A, E, D and K, iron, calcium, zinc, sodium, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus. They are low in saturated fat and cholesterol so its no surprise that artichokes have so many health benefits. Please click on the specific vitamin or mineral mentioned above for more information on it.

Digestive Bitter
Due to its bitter taste, cynarin has been found to cause an increase in bile flow helping to speed the movement of food waste through the intestinal tract reliving the feelings of feeling bloated. Interestingly, it also inhibits specific taste receptors, which results in everything tasting sweeter for a period of time after eating. This is why even water may taste sweet immediately after eating artichokes. Supplementation with globe artichoke has also been shown to reduce the symptoms functional dyspepsia. This is not surprising since artichoke has been long established as a digestive bitter. This is a term used to describe herbs that increase the production of digestive juices and stimulate appetite. This can have a beneficial effect on the liver, gallbladder, and all the digestive organs. It can also help to reduce the symptoms of: nausea, vomiting, gas, and stomach pain.

Cholesterol Lowering and Protects Liver
Artichoke has been shown to strengthen and protect the liver. It has also been found to improve gallbladder function and raises the ratio of HDL ("good" cholesterol) to LDL ("bad" cholesterol). This improvement in blood lipids helps to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Water extracts from artichoke leaves have also been shown to reduce cholesterol levels by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase enzyme, the enzyme responsible for cholesterol production in the liver. The bile that the liver produces helps to remove dangerous toxins and digest fats. One 2009 study found that artichoke extract could be used as an effective means of reducing high cholesterol.

Fibre Supporting Probiotics
Artichoke also helps to promote the growth of the top two beneficial gut microbes called Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus by providing inulin. Inulin is a beneficial fibre that acts as food for good gut bacteria and supports the proper growth of supplemented probiotics. The proper bacterial balance in the gut helps to prevent the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

How can I take Artichoke?
Supplementing artichoke is a relatively easy process. It can be added to the diet as part of meals, supplemented in capsule form, in liqueur (Cynar), or as a tea. The plant can be eaten as frequently as desired. When supplementing, the leaf extract can be taken to treat heartburn at a dose of 300-650mg three times daily (total dose of 900 – 1900mg daily). For lowering cholesterol, dosages at the higher end of the scale should be used. Eating an artichoke can also give the same health benefits. They can be served hot or cold or by themselves or with someone else. One way to eat it by itself is by simply pulling out the outer petals on at a time (try dipping it in your favourite sauce). Pull the leaf through your teeth, removing the soft pulpy insides and discard the tough portion of the leaf.

Artichoke – QUICK FACTS

· Leaf, flower bud.

· Digestion, digestive disorders, IBS, anorexia, liver and gall bladder conditions.

· Leaf extract: 900 – 1900mg daily in 2-3 divided doses. (Clinical doses may be higher as recommended by your practitioner).

· Other bitters, CoQ10, and fibre.

· Use should be avoided if you are suffering from bile duct obstruction or are at risk of bile duct obstruction (if you've had gall bladder attacks) - as artichoke increases bile secretion.
· Artichoke may cause an allergic reaction in those with an allergy to the ragweed family of plants.
