Have you ever tried Artichoke Tea? I can highly recommend it! Both for it’s fabulous health benefits and also for its delicious taste. The taste is smooth, sweet and softly woody, I take it with a drop of stevia.
Artichokes were used as a health food and as a digestive aid by the Egyptians and Romans, and has traditionally been taken as a health tonic in Asian countries for many ailments.
Here are 5 reasons why you should drink it on a regular basis:
1. Artichokes comes with fantastic antioxidant action which can protect the body against damage from free radicals and environmental toxins. (Among other things preventing premature aging).
2. You will also be adding Folate, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc and Vitamin A, B and C to your diet.

4.It’s soothing for the stomach, helping digestion.
5. It’s also a diuretic, preventing water retention. And is sometimes used as a weigh loss aid.
