Why Asparagus is so healthy~

All of the following was obtained through google~

What Makes Asparagus Healthy?

Asparagus is one of nature's true food heroes as a source of protein,
vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. Asparagus is also packed in
the naturally occurring phytochemicals of glutathione, rutin, and
folic acid. Asparagus, next to orange juice, is regarded as the second
best whole foods source of folic acid. Folic acid is known to lower
the risk of heart disease, colon cancer, liver disease, and spina

Asparagus, along with avocados and watermelons, are particularly rich
dietary sources of gluthathione. Gluthathione is a small protein
composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine.
Nutrition researchers have regarded it as the most valuable
detoxifying agent in the human body. Gluthathione has also been called
the "master antioxidant" that regulates the actions of lesser
antioxidants such as vitamin A and vitamin E within the body. Dietary
gluthathione intake from food sources such as asparagus has been
associated with protection against certain forms of cancer in addition
to potent anti-viral properties. Gluthathione is also a regenerator of
immune cells.

Rutin is a bioflavonoid that is highly concentrated in asparagus.
Research has proven rutin to be vital in its ability to increase the
strength of capillaries and regulate their permeability. Rutin's real
value is its ability to increase circulation to the lower limbs, by
increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.

Happy Now Year

Nothingness or Beingness? As the Zorba Buddhist, once told me that there are no choices made by the Zorba. Life's course of actions lead to the everything in which he was meant to experience to evolve through his blueprint for this life. The "realness" of life is based in the 'beingness' while in a car one is merged with the nothingness.

Spending time on this planet with others in the mode of goodness full of the beingness is so wonderous~
