Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) is probably best known for its edible ‘heart’ - the mass of immature florets in the centre of the bud that is called the choke or beard.

Cynara can still be found in the wild in some parts of the world such as North Africa. From around the 9th Century cynara was cultivated in Naples and can now be found in many other parts of the world. In the 16th Century, the Dutch introduced cynara to the English who gave it the name artichoke. Nowadays the cultivation of cynara is concentrated mainly in countries round the Mediterranean.

“Not as good as it used to be, there was a time where I would have given it 6 stars, it was that good. I discovered this product 30+ years ago and have been using it ever since. I think, over the years, the formulation has been diluted as it can now be taken internally. I don't know what has changed but it is not as strong now as it used to be. There was a time when I would apply the product to my dermatitis and in two days it would all be cleared up with relief from symptoms occurring immediately. Not so the case now. I have to apply for a whole 7 days before my skin is cleared and no longer reduces symptoms quickly like itching and swelling. I will continue to use it as it is the most effective product I have ever used for topical dermatitis but am saddened that it is no longer the whiz bang product it used to be and requires more patience to see the results.”
