The Ultimate Spring-Time Vegetable

Health Note from Dr. Liz

March 13, 2013

Asparagus is the ultimate springtime vegetable. Packed with nutrition, asparagus supplies 66 percent of the daily recommended dose of folic acid in just one cup. But there’s more: Asparagus is also packed with vitamins C, E and A, and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6, along with dietary fiber, iron, manganese, copper, and phosphorous.
