Globe Artichoke

(Cynara scolymus)

A well-known Liver Remedy which will help to detoxify and regenerate a damaged liver, Globe Artichoke will also protect it from further damage.  In addition it helps stimulate the flow of bile without impairing liver function.  The flow of bile also has a stimulating effect and will reduce blood levels of cholesterol, reduce gallstones and prevent further recurrence as well as relieve dyspepsia, IBS, rheumatism and gout.

Active Constituents:  Sesquiterpene lactones (mainly cynaropicrin), phenolic acids (including cynarin), flavonoids, coumarins, alkaloids, pseudotannins, polyacetylenes and an enzyme (cyanarase).

Main Actions:

  • Hepatoprotective (Liver Protective)
  • Cholagogue (increases the flow of  bile from the gall bladder)
  • Diuretic
  • Liver trophorestorative (brings balance to the action of the liver where it is deficient or in excess)


  • Safe at Therapeutic Doses but should be avoided by patients who have bile duct obstruction and anyone sensitive to members of the Asteraceae family of plants.
  • Avoid during pregnancy and lactation.
