Artichoke is known as a unique source of minerals and vitamins. It is also full of active substances that accelerate the metabolism, enhance the functioning of the digestive tract, excretion of bile, and produce a mild diuretic effect. The effects are best observed through detoxication, regulating the level of water in the body and enhancing bile excretion. This is very important, given that enhanced bile excretion leads to a better metabolism of fat reserves, thus enabling the receptors in the brain to create an entirely different image of the body’s needs for food. The end result is eliminating the feeling of hunger, and avoiding compulsive overeating is the first step in the weight loss process.
