Nutritional Facts: Asparagus Power!

May 26, 2013 1 min read

And we're back with another round of Nutritional Facts:

Harness the power of asparagus and reap it’s rich rewards.

Fighting cancer and packing a powerful punch of vitamin K, asparagus is one feisty vegetable! This slim vegetable is loaded with more health benefits than you can shake a spear at - and it is delicious, too. A large spear of asparagus is only a mere 4 calories, but it boasts fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and nearly 10% of your daily intake of vitamin K. Each javelin shaped morsel also contains chromium, a mineral that increases the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells. Want more? Sure! Asparagus has glutathione, a compound that detoxifies to aid in the breaking down of carcinogens and nasty free radicals. The result is a vegetable that may help prevent and fight certain kinds of cancer, including lung, bone, breast, colon and larynx. The reduction of free radicals may also help slow the aging process. We’re talking one powerful herbaceous plant!
