The healing power of asparagus

  1. Asparagus is a delicious and healthy seasonal vegetable. It was already cultivated by the Egyptians for its medicinal properties. The asparagus is now widely cultivated in the Limburgse Peel. Asparagus is quite expensive. It is a delicacy among vegetables. It is not without reason that asparagus is regularly put on the menu in restaurants with Dutch or European cuisine in the spring. Asparagus is available in green and white.

Wild asparagus

  1. Wild asparagus is native to India, the Himalayas, where it is used locally for both culinary and medical purposes. The traditional healing power attributed to asparagus has been confirmed by current modern science that asparagus is a super healthy vegetable

Vitamin-rich spring vegetables

  1. Asparagus is a very nutritious vegetable. It contains a large number of different vitamins. 100 grams of asparagus contains 46% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)

Full of minerals

  1. Asparagus is a rich source of minerals. Especially for iron, the content in 100 grams of asparagus is high; 11% of the RDI. In order of how much it is present here is a list of the other super healthy minerals that live in the asparagus: copper (9% RDA), manganese (7% RDA), molybdenum (6% RDA), potassium (5% RDA). ), phosphorus (5% RDA), zinc, magnesium and selenium account for 4% of the RDA and finally there is still 2% of the RDA of calcium. In addition, the asparagus contains the amino acid

Overloaded with phytonutrients

  1. Many phytonutrients are found in asparagus. It contains four main saponins, namely: asparanin A, sarsasapogenin, protodioscin and diosgenin. These all have an anti-inflammatory effect at the cellular level. Sarsasapogenin is known to counteract amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This nerve disease caused by inflammation in the nerves is counteracted by this special saponin that resides in the asparagus. In addition, flavonoids are effective as an anti-inflammatory, in particular: quercetin

Strong antioxidant effect

  1. Due to all the anti-inflammatory phytonutrients in combination with the presence of beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E and the minerals selenium, zinc and manganese, it can be said that asparagus is a very good source of antioxidants

Inulin in asparagus

  1. Inulin is a special substance. It is used as a glucose substitute in people with diabetes. Inulin does not affect blood sugar levels. In addition, inulin is used as prebiotics in regular medicine. These are substances that are not immediately digested, but do stimulate bacterial growth in the intestines and thus have major health effects in the body. Inulin promotes the growth of bifidobacteria and the production of lactic acid, succinic acid, propionic acid, butyric acid and acetic acid. In Ayurvedic medicine from India, asparagus is therefore seen as a medicine for digestive disorders. Inulin is also found in chicory root, which is used to make coffee substitute, and artichokes

Good for the diabetic

  1. Besides inulin, asparagus contains a lot of vitamin B. These regulate blood sugar levels because they play a key role in the conversion of sugars in the body. In addition, there is a lot of fiber

Asparagus against cancer

  1. Asparagus is good for preventing cancer. It contains a substance that is used as a medicine for leukemia. That is the amino acid asparagine. This amino acid occurs naturally in asparagus, but the medicine uses bacteria that can make the amino acid. The enzyme asparaginase is also present in the asparagus stalk. That also has a preventive effect against cancer. Strangely enough, however, the scientists never investigated the anti-cancer effect of the vegetable asparagus, only of these two substances that it contains. Some argue that if it were scientifically proven that people could be cured of cancers other than leukemia, the chemotherapy costs that cost hundreds of thousands per cancer patient would become redundant, and the pharmaceutical industry would cut its own legs from under the chair when it made money available to investigate this.
