The artichoke is wonderful for gallbladder and gallstone help. It encourages more bile production. This, in turn, can thin down the proportion of cholesterol in your gallbladder which can help dissolve gallstones. Artichokes simultaneously reduce cholesterol production by your liver.

While fun to eat the artichoke “meat” from the leaves, it’s often very slow. Artichoke hearts, of course, are much easier to eat. Make sure to add them to salads, pastas, sandwiches, and more. The easiest of all, though, is taking artichoke extract or supplements.
