A Brief History of Artichokes

Artichokes offer a very powerful protection of the liver against the effects of various toxins such as alcohol, and also help to maintain low blood cholesterol levels by suppressing its synthesis in the liver to a healthy amount and promoting its excretion. An artichoke supplement offers many more health benefits than just these, and also possesses powerful antioxidant effects and helps maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.

The globe artichoke is believed to have originated in Ethiopia, and was used to aid the digestion in ancient Greece and Rome. It was not a common vegetable over two to three thousand years ago, and was generally available only to those rich enough to afford it. Artichoke first came to the USA with the Spanish and French explorers and settlers, and the vast majority of America's artichokes are now grown in California: Castroville to be precise!
