As we explained at that time, the artichoke is a non-thorny variety of the wild thistle of the Mediterranean regions, in such a way that we tend to consume the flower, although its leaves are what give it its important and outstanding therapeutic properties (from there to be used a lot artichoke extract ).
It is not our goal to return to redound the benefits of the artichoke, but to echo one of the most important virtues of it: its properties for the liver .
