Did you know!
The second century physician Galen described asparagus as “cleansing and healing.” Nutrition studies have shown asparagus is a low-calorie source of folate and potassium. Its stalks are high in antioxidants. Six spears contain around 135 micrograms (μg) of folate, that’s almost half the adult RDI (recommended daily intake). Green asparagus is a good source of vitamin C too!
