Health benefit of asparagus
Asparagus is low in calories and carbohydrates, and compared to other vegetables it is
relatively rich in protein. One cup of asparagus supplies only 24 calories, almost half of
which are derived from protein. Asparagus is an excellent source of potassium, vitamin K,
folic acid , vitamins C and A, riboflavin, thiamine, and vitamin B6. Asparagus is also a very good source of dietary fiber, niacin, phosphorus, protein, and iron.

Historically, asparagus has been used as a diuretic and in the treatment of arthritis and
rheumatism. The amino acid asparagine may be responsible for the diuretic effect of
asparagus. When this amino acid is excreted in the urine, it gives off a strong,
characteristic odor.
