Health Benefits

Asparagine is a popular amino acid found in asparagus juice. The distinct smell observed in the urine of individuals who have consumed asparagus (I think it smells like Cheerios) is attributed to various metabolic byproducts of asparagine. Deficiency of this amino acid may manifest as painful headaches, confusion, and a noticeable increase in irritability, forgetfulness and even the onset of depression. Asparagus is said to have anti cancer properties, this may be due to the high levels of glutathione, an antioxidant that protects the body against certain types of cancer and boosts immune cells. Asparagus is also high in folic acid, vitamin K, and is a good source of vitamins A, C and minerals calcium, potassium and iron.
