General Science
Traditionally in western herbal medicine, one of the known functions of globe artichoke is as a choleretic. Choleretics help to increase the liver’s production of bile as well as bile flow. Healthy bile production and flow has a key role in helping with the digestion of fats.

Straight to the source
Swisse sources its globe artichoke from the stunning town of Lorca in Spain, where farmers have been growing artichokes for hundreds of years. Growing artichokes in Lorca is a labour of love, as it is one of the few ingredients still grown and harvested by hand with no machinery involved.
