What is artichoke? Native to Africa and used as a food by ancient Greeks, artichoke (not to be confused with the Jerusalem artichoke, a root vegetable) is a large thistle-like perennial plant rich in valuable nutrients, including the powerful flavonoid luteolin, vitamins A and C, manganese, potassium and folic acid. Why choose Healthspan’s Artichoke Extract? Artichoke hearts are delicious in many recipes, but to reap the artichoke benefits you need to get the nutrients contained within the stems and leaves, which are less edible. That’s why we’ve created our artichoke tablets – these contain a natural, concentrated extract obtained from artichoke leaves and provide high levels of the main active compound, cynarin. Made in the UK. Complementary products Anyone who is supplementing their diet with Artichoke Extract, should also consider a Milk Thistle supplement. We’ve taken 50mg milk thistle seed extract and added calcium, which contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes, and choline, which contributes to the maintenance of normal liver function.
