artichoke leaf extract

A herbal supplement extracted from artichokes (Cynara cardunculus), which some claim are beneficial for indigestion or heartburn, hypercholesterolaemia, irritable bowel syndrome and hangovers. The extract’s effects have been attributed to its high content of chlorogenic acid, cynarin, and caffeic acid. There is no peer-reviewed data to support the efficacy of that artichoke leaf extract.
