Asparagus is a member of the lily family and has been found to be an aphrodisiac, since ancient times.  It is packed with nutrients. High in vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, beta -carotene, vitamin E, zinc, manganese and selenium.

It’s also especially rich in detoxifying compound, glutathione, which can help destroy carcinogens. For this reason, asparagus may help fight or protect against certain cancers.
