Artichoke is a nutritious food with potent antioxidants and prebiotics. Its extract may help with digestive issues, protect the liver, and prevent heart disease.

What Is Artichoke Extract?
Artichoke extract is obtained from globe artichoke (Cynara scolymus) or cardoon (Cynara cardunculus) plants. It has been historically used to treat stomach problems, gout, and diabetes.

Artichokes have a high mineral content. They also contain vitamin C, fiber, inulin, and polyphenols. Its composition depends on the part of the plant, as well as on other factors such as the variety, type of soil, and climate. Polyphenolic active compounds are mainly found in the leaves. Thus, artichoke leaf extracts have more potential health benefits than eating the artichoke as a vegetable.

Artichoke extracts are mainly used in herbal medicine to help lower cholesterol, protect the liver, and fight against bacteria and fungi.

Artichoke Extract Components
Artichoke extract contains luteolin, caffeoylquinic acid, chlorogenic acid, apigenin, sterols, and inulin. It’s also rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, zinc, copper, and manganese.

Leaf extracts are rich in caffeoylquinic acid and luteolin. The main polyphenols in artichoke extract are chlorogenic acid, cynarin, luteolin 7-O-rutinoside, and luteolin 7-O-glucoside. Luteolin is an antioxidant that may also help prevent inflammation and cancer. Caffeoylquinic acid is another antioxidant. It helps form bonds with toxic compounds, thus lowering their toxicity.
Cynarin is another antioxidant compound found in artichoke. It stimulates bile production, which helps the gut digest fats and absorb vitamins from food. Inulin is a sweet-tasting indigestible starchy substance found in artichoke. It is a prebiotic, which means it can increase the number of beneficial microorganisms in the gut.
