Artichokes and Garlic News

A lot of people enjoy eating artichoke leaves with some clarified butter or olive oil. But did you know that artichoke leaf extract can be used as a medicinal supplement? It's true, according to research presented in a new column entitled, Artichoke Leaf for IBS and Indigestion. But there's more to the story than the title suggests. It appears that artichoke extract may also promote cardiovascular and liver health.

I was also interested to read about how to use garlic to support a healthy heart. There's a lot of debate about whether garlic truly is a useful food with regard to high cholesterol, hypertension and to improve circulation. These days, many doctors claim that it's pretty much useless. Not so, according to The Truth About Garlic and Heart Health.

You've got to stay up to date on this kind of material or you can't put it to use! I hope you find it to be helpful and informative.
