Artichokes are packed with phytonutrients such as quercetin, rutin, gallic acid, and cynarin, all working to protect against many health risks including cancer, heart disease, liver dysfunction, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
In 2004, the United States Department of Agriculture conducted one of its largest, comprehensive studies analyzing the antioxidant capacity of the most commonly consumed fruits and vegetables... Artichokes ranked in the top four vegetables and seventh overall.
Artichoke leaf extract also contains polyphenolic compounds that have been clinically studied and proven to help maintain already healthy HDL / LDL ratios.
There is no surprise as to why we included this specialty ingredient into the Martian™ formula. Martian yields over 16,000 ORAC units per 1 single scoop and it tastes absolutely amazing!
