Artichokes have a range of minerals, nutrients, and plant-based chemicals, all of which are important for a healthy liver and carcinogen prevention. You can get all of the health benefits from the veggie salat or burger full of artichokes. Artichokes can be highly effective against heart disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
Artichokes can cure the tumors and also can protect your liver
Artichokes increase bile production which is associated with cynarin-a beneficial compound for a healthy liver. They contain silymarin, a flavonoid known for optimizing liver cell function. Artichoke leaf extract has key antioxidants for inducing cell death (apoptosis) and slowing carcinogen cell growth. They are full of polyphenol-type antioxidants, making them great against breast carcinogen, leukemia preventers, and prostate carcinogen
