This time of year it’s easy to source fresh asparagus. Did you know that it is one of the clean 15 indicated by Environmental Working Group (EWG)? It’s safe to eat even if it isn’t organic. Asparagus is tasty and versatile and so easy to prepare!

Asparagus is Nutritious

Asparagus is loaded with nutrients. It is also rich in glutathione, a nutrient critical in the detoxification pathways. This is why eating asparagus may help protect against and fight certain forms of cancer, such as bone, breast, colon, larynx and lung cancers.

It is also a very good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells. Asparagus has many anti-oxidants which help neutralize cell damaging free radicals.

Additionally, asparagus contains contains high levels of the amino acid asparagine, which serves as a natural diuretic. This is helpful for people who suffer from edema (an accumulation of fluids in the body’s tissues) and those who have high blood pressure or other cardio-vascular diseases.

When asparagus is broken down by the body there will be a distinctive odor in the urine. Don’t worry. That’s your body doing its job.
