Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) is probably best known for its edible ‘heart’ - the mass of immature florets in the centre of the bud that is called the choke or beard.

Cynara can still be found in the wild in some parts of the world such as North Africa. From around the 9th Century cynara was cultivated in Naples and can now be found in many other parts of the world. In the 16th Century, the Dutch introduced cynara to the English who gave it the name artichoke. Nowadays the cultivation of cynara is concentrated mainly in countries round the Mediterranean.

“I've given excellent rating as everything was nicely packaged. I bought this for my husband as he was recommended by a friend to help lower cholesterol. He does say it has quite an unpleasant taste but if it works then he's prepared to take it.”

Joanne, Washington

Response from A.Vogel: Do keep us posted on your husbands progress. A small tip: Most of our tinctures can be taken in fruit juice, which lessens the taste for those who don't like it.
