The Effect of Artichoke on Cholesterol Levels

Unlike the Jerusalem artichoke, the Globe artichoke is a true artichoke that all the hullabaloo is about with regard to your health. The Jerusalem artichoke is not an artichoke at all, but a member of the sunflower family, and will not be considered here. The globe artichoke contains cholerotic substances that reduces the biosynthesis of cholesterol in the liver and increases its secretion, and hence reduces the LDL cholesterol content of your blood.

The substances responsible for this are said to be chlorogenic acid, cynarin and luteolin. Cynarin and chlorogenic acid are hydroxycinnamic acids, possessing strong antioxidant properties, and luteolin is a flavonoid that is also antioxidant and possesses hypoglycemic properties. Each of these can help reduce cholesterol levels and improve the health of your heart as well as exerting a strong antioxidant effect on free radicals.
