Stalk Up On Asparagus
Described by the ancient physician Galen as “cleansing and healing,” asparagus is nutrient-dense, a good source of Vitamin C and high in Folic Acid. A temperate climate and rich soil ensure that asparagus tastes the best. Be sure to store asparagus upright in water to keep it fresh and firm.
Asparagus is rich in folic acid, which can help prevent mouth ulcers. It contains NO fat or cholesterol and is a perfect source of Vitamin C. Asparagus is high in asparagine, and amino acid that is helpful for removing salts from the body. This is great for people who suffer from high blood pressure or other heart-related issues. Asparagus is one of the best vegetable sources of riboflavin (Vitamin B2), which helps reduce the frequency of migraine headaches and how long they last in people who suffer from them.
