Superfoods Asparagus

In support of “Nutrition Month” we are throwing a spotlight on asparagus, part of the superfoods. This delicious green vegetable is known for a ton of nutrients. Asparagus is high in Folate, Vitamins C, E, and K, Zinc, Selenium and Manganese. It is excellent as an inflammatory as it is incredibly high in antioxidants, particularly glutathione, which assists in the destruction of cancer-causing carcinogens.

Many people are familiar with the aftermath of consuming asparagus. Yes, asparagus is infamous for the smell it can cause in your urine. Interestingly, this is caused during digestion. Asparagus contains asparagusic acid, which gets broken down during the digestive process into a variety of compounds containing sulphur, resulting in the notorious odor.
