Most people I know have a love/hate relationship with asparagus. I am on the love side of the fence and am amazed with its nutritional benefits.

Touted as one of the world’s healthiest foods, asparagus is a great source of:

  • Vitamin K – helps prevent heart disease and improves blood clotting)
  • Copper – increases the body’s absorption of Iron
  • Folate/Vitamin B9 – encourages cell and tissue growth
  • Selenium – good for heart health, blood flow and reduces free radical oxidative stress
  • Vitamin B2 – aids body in producing red blood cells and converting food into energy
  • Vitamin C – an antioxidant that also helps the body form and maintain healthy skin and bones
  • Vitamin E – helps reduce damage from free radicals

Asparagus also is contains Fiber, Manganese, Phosphorus, Niacin, Potassium, Choline, Zinc, Iron, Protein, Vitamin A & B6, and Pantothenic Acid, which helps the body convert food into energy.
