Why Eat Artichoke:

Artichoke are an extremely beneficial food with a host of illness-fighting, age-extending properties. Artichokes are packed with phytonutrients such as quercetin, rutin, gallic acid, and cynarin, all working to protect against many health risks including cancer, heart disease, liver dysfunction, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Artichokes are particularly good for the liver, aiding in healthy bile production.
