The Artichoke Aphrodisiac
Artichokes are aphrodisiacs and good for the heart. One of the many substances in the artichoke is silymarin, which is the main herb for liver function, skin, and heart health. Silymarin is one of the primary ingredients in milk thistle. We regularly add artichoke hearts to our salad. If you do not want to try artichokes, but want the benefit of silymarin, I recommend purchasing a bottle of Milk Thistle. Begin with one a day for a week, then go to two. Steadily increase, because if your liver is congested, which more than likely it is, you do not need the extra stress on your system.
