They are one of the most fiber-rich vegetables (inulin), which helps to regulate intestinal transit and maintain gut flora. They are also rich in Vitamin B (like Vitamins B1 and B6), Vitamin C and in minerals like potassium, magensium and phosphorus. In addition, they contain plant sterols (molecules with a very similar to cholesterol structure, they help to block its absorption in the gut and thus to maintain the reccomended levels of cholesterol in the blood). And finally, they also contain cynarine, a substance which assists with liver function.
