Heath benefits:

Asparagus season is quickly approaching, so it is a good time to consider this tender and succulent member of the lily family.

  • Asparagus is a good source of fiber and protein, both essential for good digestion and immunity.
  • It contains a number of anti-inflammatory compounds that protect you from type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
  • It has antioxidants, including one called glutathione, which is known to protect the skin from sun damage, pollution and the effects of aging.
  • The Vitamin K in asparagus is excellent for healthy blood clotting and strengthening bones.
  • Asparagus contains a unique carb called inulin, which remains undigested until it reaches the large intestine, where it helps to absorb nutrients better, and cut the risk of colon cancer.

  • Green asparagus is much more beneficial than white, say reports. The goodness is in the stalk, which contains vitamin A for better vision, potassium for smooth kidney functioning, and trace minerals that help boost immunity.
