Asparagus is one of the veggies that loaded with nutrients.  It is a very good source of Vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as folate which works with vitamin B12 to perform better speed and mental flexibility.  It is also packed with antioxidant which has the ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals and help slow the aging process.  Asparagus may help to protect against any form of cancer, because it is a rich source of glutathione which helps break down carcinogens and harmful compounds.
