I love artichoke hearts and a great add on to salads. My aunt has told me artichokes are super healthy for you so I looked into what benefits they offer. Here is what I found out:

– full of fiber

– good source of protein

– contains vitamins and minerals including magnesium, chromium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and calcium

– great source of vitamin A

– may lower cholesterol

– may help lower blood fat levels
