Artichoke Nutrition: Part 2
Trying to keep up with what is healthy one moment and harmful the next can make you feel like you're chasing your tail. But if there's one thing everyone can agree on, it's that eating more green vegetables is always a good idea. We've recently been talking more about the lesser-known health benefits of artichokes, and this week we have 3 more reasons to love this nutrient powerhouse!
Fiber is a key factor for making you feel satiated. This is also why it can be so easy to mow down a bag of chips without feeling too stuffed afterward due to their lack of fiber content. Eating vegetables allows you to feel full while consuming significantly less calories than processed food, which means you won't be tempted to reach for an extra snack later. But fiber isn't the only reason - read more here about how artichokes help control your appetite.
Sleep has become a neglected necessity in our fast-paced society. Not only do you probably not get enough hours of sleep, but the sleep you do get may not be quality. Repeatedly getting less than 7 hours of quality sleep has been found to cause an array of health issues. So what if we told you that artichokes promote better sleep with its magnesium content? Find out just how on our Artichoke Nutrition page.
We all know that blood sugar can be a pesky thing to manage. Constant spikes and crashes can leave us moody and tired as well as have adverse long-term effects on our health. Did you know that your gut bacteria has something to do with that? Artichokes contain prebiotics, which can help increase insulin sensitivity and lower fasting glucose levels.
