Hi Chayogarza,
Did you tell your doctor that you are taking this supplement? While it helps to lower your blood sugar, you don't know how it may interfere with the Metformim.
As a precaution, please inform your doctor. I would like to try this supplement but before I do, I will ask my doctor. Thank you for sharing this information. All the best to you.

I've been eating artichokes for a dew months now. At 1st, I ate 1 every day, bt cut back to 1 every other day. I love artichokes but everyday was just too much to handle.
I do know my BG 1st thing in the mornings are lower than when I don't eat an artichoke.
Never looked for artichoke in a pill or any other form for that matter…but will now.
Thank you for posting this.

Hope, how do you cook and serve the artichokes? I used to steam mine (pressure cook, actually), then eat the heart and the fleshy part of the leaf. Great for fiber. Loved them with butter, tried w/mayo, but trying to avoid both these days. Guess could use EVOO. Love marinaded A. hearts too. What do you do??? I'm looking for ideas.

I usually boil them, but have steamed them… I use a tablespoon olive oil, a pinch or 2 of sea salt & lots of garlic powder in water.
I used to dip them in butter, never did like them with mayo, but eat them plain now..
Around the holidays I stuff them Louisiana style
