GLOBE CYNARA SCOLYMUS  It is one of the world's oldest cultivated vegetables, grown by the Greeks and the Romans. The flower heads are commonly eaten as a vegetable, but extracts of the leaves and root are said to be helpful in preventing arteriosclerosis. Artichoke has also been used for jaundice, dyspepsia, liver insufficiency, chronic albuminuria, and postoperative anemia. In some countries, the artichoke is considered an aphrodisiac.  The globe artichoke has become important as a medicinal herb in recent years following the discovery of cynarin. This bitter-tasting compound, which is found in the leaves, improves liver and gall bladder function, stimulates the secretion of digestive juices, especially bile, and lowers blood cholesterol levels.
