Health Benefits of Asparagus
Asparagus helps the body build red blood cells and strengthens your blood vessels.
It stimulates the kidneys and is good for the liver, skin, bones and ligaments.
Green asparagus is a very rich source of vitamin A.
It also contains the B vitamins and vitamins C and E.
It is high in chlorophyll and fiber, as well as potassium, iodine and zinc.
Steam with the tips up and more vitamins B and C will be preserved.
White asparagus has fewer nutrients than the green. It has no vitamin A.
Purchase organic or conventional since asparagus is on EWG’s “Clean 15” list.
