Source of the Digestive Support Nutrient, Inulin


Nutritional Profile

Asparagus contains a unique array of phytonutrients. Like chicory root and Jerusalem artichoke, it is an important source of the digestive support nutrient, inulin. Its anti-inflammatory saponins include asparanin A, sarsasapogenin, protodioscin, and diosgenin. Flavonoids in asparagus include quercetin, rutin, kaempferol, and isorhamnetin. In the case of purple asparagus, anthocyanins are also among asparagus’ unique phytonutrients. Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin K, folate, copper, selenium, vitamin B2, vitamin C, and vitamin E. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, potassium, choline, vitamin A, zinc, iron, protein, vitamin B6, and pantothenic acid. Additionally, it is a good source of magnesium and calcium.

Health benefits of asparagus

Asparagus fresh produce 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
  • Decreased risk of birth defects
  • Lowered risk of depression

Decreased Risk of Birth Defects


Studies were done on Asparagus

A  study published in 2012 showed that the folic acid levels transferred from a pregnant woman to her baby are significantly reduced when chronic or heavy alcohol consumption is a factor. Because folic acid is crucial to the healthy development of both the placenta and fetus, disruption of the normal flow of folate from mother to child may contribute to the deficits observed in fetal alcohol disorders.

Considered a “major problem” in Japan, growth inhibition of asparagus was studied to diagnose the reason. Still a controversial topic as experts discuss the possibility of chemical or foodborne pathogens, the study, which was conducted using soil studies in several fields in 2007 and 2008, concluded that the growth inhibition was due to continuous cropping of asparagus.

Lowered Risk of Depression

Asparagus cultivation began in Egypt more than 2,000 years ago for medicinal purposes. Its name was derived from the Persian term “asparagus,” meaning “shoot.” An asparagus-based aphrodisiac from the same area was discovered in a 16th-century love manual. Experts advised consuming it three days in a row for the most potent effect. English peasants called it “sparrow grass,” which morphed to “sperage” and later “asparagus.”
