Artichoke Frees Your Liver!
Due to the chemical assaults of the world we live in, most people’s livers are overburdened by chemical overload and function sluggishly. Artichoke to the rescue! This delicious vegetable is also a potent liver protector due to a flavonoid called silymarin, the same compound found in milk thistle. Silymarin has strong antioxidant properties, and studies on animals indicate that it may protect against liver toxicity and cancer. So next time it’s in season, steam and eat a couple of artichoke flowers to keep your liver filtering healthily along.
