The Asparagus’s beneficial properties :
The properties most traditionally recognized as asparagus are diuretic, followed by antioxidants. This plant, however, contains many substances useful to the body, whose presence is often underestimated, from the considerable amount of folic acid, to the fibers, to the amino acid whose name is evidently linked to the sprout, the asparagine. Rich in water, low in fat, cholesterol-free, asparagus offers vitamins in abundance, from A to C to some of the B group, and a considerable wealth of mineral salts, such as phosphorus and calcium, although the mineral potassium is absolutely richer.
