The Astounding Benefits of the Artichoke

Artichokes are listed as one of the big Super foods in the vegetable aisle with many positive health benefits.

Artichokes have one of the highest antioxidant levels among all fresh vegetables. Antioxidants fight against free radicals that may cause damage to healthy cells. Research shows that artichokes in our diet may reduce the risk of certain cancers, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

As part of a healthy diet, Artichokes can selectively nourish the “good” bacteria that line your intestinal track and ward off E.Coli and other food borne viruses. The fiber in artichokes, along with the phytochemicals luteolin and cynarin, is thought to help lower cholesterol levels. Even more good news, artichokes are low in calories and carbs!

U.S. artichokes are grown exclusively in California, and the United States consumes over half of them!
