Artichoke is a perennial herb widely cultivated on a large scale throughout Europe and elsewhere. Apart from its use as a food, artichoke is widely cultivated for medicinal purposes and the preparation of extracts from the young leaves of the plant.
According to references, the leaves of Artichoke and in particular of Wild Arctichoke were cleaned and eaten while being used for pharmaceutical purposes since the 2nd century AD.
Artichoke products are known for their properties in stimulating bile secretion with the 1,5-dicaffeoyl ester it contains, to have a strong effect on bile flow, based on laboratory experiments. In vitro studies have also shown it offers hepatocellular protection against carbon tetrachloride toxicity (Souleles, 2000).
Artichoke contains alcohols and phenolic acids that are found in the form of caffeoyl acid esters, such as caffeine. In addition, it contains flavonoids and nutrients such as Vitamins (K, C, B), Potassium, Iron, Phosphorus, Manganese and Copper.
