Cellulite Fighting Foods #10: Asparagus

Mother was right to make you eat your asparagus, no matter how much you protested! Asparagus is not just one of the healthiest veggies around, but it's a great cellulite fighting food as well. The vegetable can strengthen the blood vessels beneath your skin, and it will help to lower your blood pressure. It also contains potassium, which will help to reduce the puffiness of your skin that is the result of water retention.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="598"] Source: tendertips.co.nz[/caption] The veggie is rich in both folate and folic acid, also known as Vitamin B9. All of the B Vitamins help to improve circulation, but B9 is one of the most important for fighting cellulite. It also improves the health of women as they age, ensuring that their hormones are properly balanced. The insulin produced by the consumption of asparagus can help to reduce the formation of cellulite, thanks to its ability to control blood sugar levels. Bonus benefits: This veggie can prevent inflammation, boost digestive health, improve heart health, balance blood sugar, and fight cancer.
