In this video we will explore the health benefits of artichokes.
Although artichokes are commonly thought of as a vegetable, the part of the artichoke you eat is actually the bud of a flower before it blooms.
After flowering, the artichoke becomes a single purple flower, but most artichokes are harvested before they're ready.
The artichokes you find in grocery stores or farmers markets are round and covered with spiny leaves.
Steamed, artichokes have a tender texture and a sweet, earthy flavor that makes them an excellent addition to dips and sauces, but they're also perfect as a snack on their own.
Artichoke extract, which contains high concentrations of compounds found in the plant, is also becoming increasingly popular as a dietary supplement.
Artichokes are often referred to as superfoods, in part because of their high antioxidant content. Studies show a number of proven and potential health benefits of artichoke.
Alleged health benefits include lower blood sugar levels and improved digestion, heart health and liver health.
