Detox with artichoke: its benefits and how to include it on a regular diet
Artichoke is not only a delicious and nutritious food, it is also a plant that has been providing benefits for centuries, such as cleaning the liver and purifying the blood. We show you how it influences weight, liver and kidneys, its benefits and how you can consume it for a detox session.
Artichoke and weight
First we must pay attention when we start a diet that involves artichokes. It has been denied that a diet based on artichokes alone leads to weight loss, however, given the benefits in digestion, cholesterol reduction and regulation of blood sugar levels is an excellent complement to a balanced diet. Artichoke blisters are available to help improve digestion difficulties. Consult your doctor before taking artichoke supplements.
Cleaning the liver and kidneys with artichoke
As mentioned above there are herbal and artichokes blisters. These facilitate digestion and renal elimination, but also liver cleansing. But artichoke alone is an excellent diuretic and high in fiber. Artichoke has liver cleansing properties that researchers have attributed especially to two phytonutrients:
–Cynarin, an antioxidant that helps the liver produce bile, is essential for digesting fat and expelling toxins from the body.
-Silymarin, a flavonoid that protects liver cells and cell membranes.
The artichoke protects the liver against liver toxicity (hepatoxicity).
More general benefits of artichoke
This plant contains calcium, fiber, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin B, C and K among other nutrients. It is a protector of the brain, bones and eyesight. In addition, scientists have proven that it has anti-carcinogenic potential.
You can make artichoke juices to include in your detox sessions and or daily diet and help cleanse your body after complicated weeks, parties or tasting sessions or just to help you carry on with a healthy lifestyle.
