Asparagus

Asparagus belongs to the family of lilies and is valued for its therapeutic properties. The newly formed shoots (spears), root, and “underground stems” (rhizomes) are used to make medicine. Asparagus is a commonly eaten vegetable in many parts of the world and is well known for its unique, savory taste. It is normally available in white, green and purple colors

Asparagus spears can be eaten raw or cooked. The seed and root extracts of asparagus are used in alcoholic beverages.

Asparagus is one of the best natural sources of folate. Adequate folate intake is extremely important during periods of rapid growth such as pregnancy, infancy and adolescence. Some people apply asparagus directly to the skin for cleaning the face, drying sores, and treating acne.
