Awesome Asparagus

Asparagus is not only good on the grill, but this little side dish is packed with great nutrients and health benefits.  Some of the health benefits of asparagus are: anti-inflammatory properties, a powerful “oxidation-reduction agent,” aids against bladder, breast, colon, lung, prostate, and ovarian cancers.  They are also a great source of B complex vitamin, which is great for heart health; it aids against birth defects, swelling, arthritis, rheumatism, and it’s also a great source of vitamin K and C.  Asparagus works hard to help maintain your diet by providing proper fiber and protein.[1]

It’s summertime, so fire up that grill and get yourself some asparagus.  They make a wonderful side dish to any meal and your body will reap the benefits of its nutrition.
