A peek inside an asparagus:


We can say over the last few years asparagus has become a very popular veggie, a complementary side on many dishes— not only for it’s tasty succulent flavor, but it’s health benefits.


  • high in Vitamin K

  • high in Folate (Vitamin B9)

  • high in anti-inflammatory nutrients

  • high in antioxidants, including Vitamin C, E, and minerals like zinc, manganese and selenium

According to a study published in 2013 in the journal Nueron, asparagus contains the amino acid asparagine, which is important in the function and development of the brain. (Ruzzo et al., 2013, n.p.) Due to its rich properties in asparagus, we can enjoy health benefits like:


  • hearth health (blood clots)

  • regulating blood sugar

  • digestive health

  • skin health

  • immune health

  • pregnancy health


cancer prevention: Researchers say that there is “accumulating evidence suggesting that many natural [ingredients] are potential sources of prevention and treatment of cancer, specifically talking in this case liver cancer, such as grapes, black currant, tomatoes, asparagus, garlic, turmeric and ginger [to name a few]”. (Zhou et al., 2016, n.p.)
