|Description||Cynaropikrin, a polyphenolic compound, is a sesquiterpene lactone in C. scolymus. Cynaropikrin is the bitter principle in artichoke and is, therefore, an important compound in the chemical profiling of the plant. Cynara scolymus L. (Asteraceae), commonly found in southern Europe and the USA, is cultivated as a vegetable and medicinal plant artichoke leaves are traditionally used for treatment of bile and liver diseases. Pharmacological studies have shown that extracts of the plant significantly increase choleresis (C. scolymus is used for treatment of dyspeptic syndrome) and reduce blood cholesterol, mainly because of inhibition of hepatocellular de novo cholesterol biosynthesis.|
