Artichoke: Properties and benefits

The artichoke is a vegetable with great purifying properties and has a strong ability to purify the liver. The cynarin contained in it is in fact very useful for detoxifying the liver and restoring liver function (even after states of liver fatigue due to poor nutrition). Cynarin also has beneficial properties for our vascular system (it is an excellent regulator of blood pressure). Its very high water content (91% of its weight) and the abundance of fiber contained in this vegetable make it an excellent stimulant of intestinal function and therefore an excellent purifier of the human body. It is also an excellent stimulator of diuresis and renal function. It is very rich in mineral salts (copper, zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, etc. ) and is therefore an excellent remineralising and invigorating agent for our body. It is also very rich in B vitamins (B1, B2, B3), vitamin A and vitamin C which give it strong antioxidant power. Due to its immense properties it would be advisable to consume this precious vegetable every day. Raw or even cooked. Or in the form of a smoothie, perhaps combined with other seasonal vegetables.
