Benefits of Artichoke
Artichoke also has antimicrobial benefits. The plant inhibits the activity of some types of fungi and bacteria. The high concentration of cynarin in artichokes not only affects cholesterol, but can also improve digestive health. Cynarin is known to stimulate the production of bile, which enables us to digest fats and absorb vitamins from our food, making artichokes an excellent way to start any meal, especially if it is rich and high in fat, the way the French often do it.
