Asparagus – a spring champion

Asparagus – a spring champion

This amazing vegetable queen can be prepared in so many ways that you can never get enough of it. Besides water which takes up the most of its share, it contains almost everything our bodies need. Let´s see – it has protein, fiber, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and Beta Carotene. All of these together help our bodies to:

  • Develop resistance to free radicals
  • Excrete harmful and toxic substances
  • Promote immunity and kidney function
  • Regulate cardio-vascular system
  • Provide protein metabolism

Allegedly, it is also an aphrodisiac... It is not only for healthy lifestyle freaks though…
