What is Asparagus?
Asparagus is a familiar vegetable for many, with its distinct green stalks that end in a scaly bunch at the tip. Also known as sparrow grass, Asparagus officinalis is a perennial flowering plant that grows in smooth shoots from a short, woody root stock. It can reach a height of 59 inches, and is fleshy and about as thick as a finger. Asparagus is native to central and southern Europe, the Middle East, western Siberia, and northern Africa.
Used for food and folk wellness traditions since 3000 B.C.E., asparagus has quite the rich history. It was used as a sacred offering in ancient Egypt, and an asparagus recipe is featured in one of the oldest surviving cookbooks—Apicius—compiled in the late 3rd century A.D. In traditional wellness, the rhizome was boiled into a tea, and the roots and vegetable used for supporting healthy fluid balance, cleansing, and urinary health.**
Asparagus naturally contains flavonoids, saponins, vitamins A, C, and K, and their key compounds that support health, which are called asparagosides. They are a notably alkaline food and are one of the few vegetables that deliver an ideal 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium. In supplement form, asparagus’ nutritional profile is delivered in a convenient form to support overall wellness.**.
