Some Miscellaneous Properties of Artichoke Supplements

Artichoke supplements should be standardized extractions based upon its chlorogenic acid (standardized to 15%) and/or cynarin content (to between 2% and 5%). Chlorogenic acid is a powerful antioxidant, and can help to prevent the deposition of cholesterol on the internal arterial walls while cynarin helps to lower blood cholesterol levels by reducing its synthesis in the liver and promoting its excretion.

If you come across supplements that are not standardized to chlorogenic acid or cynarin, then beware of its effectiveness. Most will be sold as leaf, although in addition to the leaf content it should also state the standardization. These two substances are used because they are believed to be the main active phytochemicals in artichoke.

Incidentally, the type of artichoke used in the globe artichoke. The Jerusalem artichoke is not a true artichoke, and while it too has certain health benefits, these are different to those offered by the true globe artichoke.
