Purchase a one pound package of Raintree's sustainably harvested pure artichoke leaf powder (Cynara scolymus) - rich in active and beneficial phytochemicals that occur naturally in this plant. Artichoke is popular for its pleasant bitter taste, which is attributed mostly to a plant chemical called cynarin found in the green parts of the plant. Cynarin is considered one of artichoke's main biologically active chemicals. Other documented "active" chemicals include flavonoids, sesquiterpene lactones, polyphenols and caffeoylquinic acids. Raintree Nutrition's artichoke has been organically grown in Brazil and ground to a powder which is suitable to stuff into capsules or to prepare your own teas, extracts, and tinctures.
This plant is best prepared as an infusion (tea): Use one teaspoon of powder for each cup of water. Pour boiling water over herb in cup and allow to steep 10 minutes. Strain tea (or allow settled powder to remain in the bottom of cup) and drink warm. It is traditionally taken 1 cup dosages, 2-3 times daily.
Contraindications: None reported.
Drug Interactions: May enhance the effect of cholesterol-lowering drugs.
100% pure artichoke leaves (Cynara scolymus). No binders, fillers or additives are used. It is organically cultivated in the Brazilian Amazon without any pesticides or fertilizers.
