Artichoke, a natural remedy to improve liver function

Cholesterol and triglycerides

Artichoke is a valuable aid to support digestion and liver function

In phytotherapy, artichoke (Cynara scolymus) is often used in synergy with other nutrients, in the formulation of supplements specifically designed to support liver function and, in general, our body detoxification. The leaves of this plant indeed have the following properties:

  • improve digestion;
  • support liver function;
  • reduce stomach bloating;
  • detox the body;
  • stimulate lipid metabolism.

This herbaceous plant, widely cultivated in regions with mild winters and native to the southern areas of Europe, as well as a digestive, is definitely known to most as good dish, a must on the tables of gourmets.

The various uses of artichoke, from Ancient Rome to the present day

The wild variant of the artichoke plant was already known to the Greeks and Romans.
In Ancient Rome, the Greek physician Dioscorides, in the time of Emperor Nero, in fact, recommended the use of artichoke roots to get useful packs to apply on armpits or other body parts in order to mitigate the unpleasant odours.

The cultivation of the plant that we use, was introduced in Europe later, probably in Sicily by the Arabs.
In the fifteenth century, artichoke was already used for dietary purposes in Italy, although it did not enjoy unique culinary acclaim. In the sixteenth century, the plant began to be cited in cookbooks and even Catherine de' Medici became an estimator of it.

Between the sixteenth and nineteenth century, the plant began to be used even for phytotherapeutic properties: its leaves were indeed used to alleviate various problems such as, for example, liver failure.
In the same period, various properties were attributed to the plant, including precisely the detoxifying and diuretic one, recognised and still in use today.
