Artichoke is particularly high in antioxidants, in the form of vitamin C and phytonutrients, which are thought to protect cells against the attack of free radicals. The two major phytonutrients found in Artichokes are Cynarin and Silymarin. These are of particular interest for their ability to lower cholesterol, protect and support liver function, increase bile production and prevent gallstones. The notable side-effect of everything tasting sweet after eating an Artichoke can be attributed to Cynarin.
