by Marc Davis
chronic gastrointestinal issues. Who knew that such an odd looking vegetable could
be so helpful to your stomach.

In addition, the extracts within artichokes have also been found to help cleanse and
detoxify your sometimes overburdened liver. A properly functioning liver helps filter
many toxins from our environment that come from water, food and air and the
artichoke can be a big help in making the liver work as it should. The extract silymarin
(which is also found in milk thistle) is well known in the health field as a compound
that helps protect and provide nourishment for the liver and thus aids the liver's
ability to more efficiently cleanse the body of these toxins. By providing a boost to
the liver you'll see improved cholesterol levels and the ability to better control blood
sugar levels and your weight all by eating the flowers of one little artichoke.

Artichokes also happen to be very low in calories (about 50-60 calories for a medium
sized artichoke) and are a fat free food. Although they have a naturally high amount
of sodium, they are great sources of natural fiber, magnesium and potassium so the
goods in artichokes definitely outweigh the bad. Pick up a few artichokes the next
time you're out shopping. Your liver will thank you for it!
