Does Asparagus do more than make your pee smell?

Does everyone know that eating asparagus makes your pee smell?  Trust me, some of us detect an odour and some of us don’t .. and whichever group you belong to – odour or odour-free – it doesn’t matter; it’s harmless and will eventually just disappear on its own.

So is asparagus something we should eat? Thanks to all the nutrients contained in asparagus, it’s truly a SUPER food.
And to prove my point, here are FIVE things ASPARAGUS is good for!

1.   Heart Health
Asparagus is rich in Vitamin B, this helps regulate amino acids which can be serious risk factors in heart disease and these acids flush excess salt from your body
Has significant amounts of fibre, which also lowers the risk of heart disease
Asparagus has anti-inflammatory properties and high levels of antioxidants; both help reduce the risk of heart disease.

2.  Regulate Blood Sugar
Vitamin B6 may affect blood sugar levels and people with healthy blood sugar levels can benefit from asparagus’s ability to regulate it.

3.  Bone Health
Vitamin K helps you absorb more calcium
You can thereby prevent osteoporosis and bone fractures.

4.  Anti-Inflammatory
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals in our body and prevent a lot of harmful effects, including inflammation.
Consuming asparagus can help fight against type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart diseases.

5.  Digestion
Stabilizes digestion due to the high amount of fibre and protein that it contains.
The fibre and protein help move food through the gut and provide relief from discomfort during digestion.

This delicious vegetable is packed with loads of good stuff (you know, like vitamins and minerals), stuff that actually makes it worth filling your plate with them! So go on, fill your plate! Don’t let the threat of smelly pee put you off!
