Asparagus is a food full of history, beloved of the ancient Greeks and Romans. The shape of asparagus prompted many cultures to believe that it was an aphrodisiac. In Europe during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, asparagus was often reserved for the aristocracy.
Asparagus is a low-calorie vegetable that is an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, especially folate and vitamins A, C and K.
Asparagus is particularly high in the flavonoids quercetin, isorhamnetin and kaempferol. These substances have been found to have blood pressure-lowering, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anticancer effects in a number of human, test-tube and animal studies. Antioxidants are compounds that help protect your cells from the harmful effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. Oxidative stress contributes to aging, chronic inflammation and many diseases, including cancer. Asparagus, like other green vegetables, is high in antioxidants.
Eating asparagus as part of a fiber-rich diet is an excellent way to help meet your fiber needs and keep your digestive system healthy. Studies suggest that a diet high in fiber-rich fruits and vegetables may help reduce the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes . It also contains a small amount of soluble fiber, which dissolves in water and forms a gel-like substance in the digestive tract. Asparagus is particularly high in insoluble fiber, which adds bulk to stool and supports regular bowel movements.
Asparagus is a very nutritious food and low in calories, is affordable and should definitely be included in your diet. There are many ways you can cook asparagus, but you should start with this toast, I promise you will love it.
