National Asparagus Month

by Dr. Kathleen Hall
asparagus, folic acid, inflammation, heart disease

It is National Asparagus Month. Asparagus is good medicine. Asparagus provides over 60 percent of the recommended daily intake of folic acid (vitamin B9). Research tells us that folic acid reduces the levels of inflammation in your body that can cause heart disease. It contains potassium, zinc, beta-carotene, and fiber! You can put asparagus on your grill, steam it, or chop it up in salads for great taste and nutrition. Food is natural medicine!
