Artichoke has been used against impairment of digestion since roman times.
It was traditionally used in Europe as choleretic, diuretic, liver function and digestion stimulant.
Evidence from clinical trials confirm that artichoke leaf extract positively affects blood lipid profiles, as shown by the following findings: decreased total cholesterol, decreased low-density lipoprotein (LDL)- cholesterol, decreased total cholesterol/HDL ratio and decreased LDL/HDL ratio. Further cholesterol lowering effects were demonstrated for dietary supplement blends containing combinations of artichoke leaf extract with other active ingredients like red yeast rice and policosanols. Artichoke leaf extract additionally reduced glycometabolic parameters in overweight subjects with impaired fasting glycaemia.
