Artichokes - a vegetable fit for a king - Solgar Food Supplement

Hi Guys,

The artichoke is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, with Ancient Egyptian texts showing that artichokes have been used medicinally, as well as for food, for thousands of years. It was considered a rare and noble plant, and was highly prized as something available only to royals and the elite. Artichokes contain a wealth of health-giving nutrients and active ingredients that can be used to protect vital organs and systems in your body, such as the liver and digestive system. It also has a role to play in heart health, due to its cholesterol lowering properties. Luckily, with Solgar’s Artichoke Leaf Extract, you don’t have to be a member of the royal family to reap the benefits of this amazing plant. 

So what makes this humble veggie such a superfood? Apart from containing vitamins C and B, folic acid and potassium, the artichoke contains the active ingredient cynarin, found mainly in the leaves. Cynarin promotes liver function, supports the digestive system to function properly and can play a role in lowering cholesterol. The liver is one of the hardest-working organs in the body, and is essential to filter out toxins from everything we eat and drink, removing chemicals like medication and alcohol from the blood, regulating hormones and blood sugar, and making certain compounds which the body needs. It is thus easy to see why taking care of the liver is vital for good overall health and well-being. Cynarin from artichokes is an all-natural way to ensure that the liver is able to work optimally and keep you in peak condition. 

The effect of artichokes on the digestive system also results in relief from indigestion, stomach pain, bloating and nausea. According to Dr Rowena Thomson, Solgar’s Technical Advisor, “This product is a fantastic example of how nature provides us with so many remedies for wellbeing and vitality. Solgar’s artichoke leaf extract is packed full of the active ingredients that have been proven to help keep your liver and stomach in good shape. Add in the fact that artichokes help to look after your heart, and you have a whole lot of goodness coming from one small vegetable. Solgar’s convenient capsules ensure that all that goodness is easily accessible for you and your family.” 

We all need multivitamin tablets and other necessary things from time to time. Because of our stressful and busy lives, our food is not able to provide us with the necessary sources of energy and then we need to take these tablets to cover for our well being. Clicks/Boots/Dischem all have their own cheaper versions of medicines as well as some branded ones (Amway's Nutrilite). Solgar is one of these brands that gives you value for money products. These tablets are food supplements and doesn't take the place of the real fresh cooked food, veggies and fruits.
