Our first delivery of local asparagus is due this Thursday. Grown just five miles from our Stamford shop door, our Tallington asparagus will be on the menu to offer sustenance of course, but were you aware of its benefits to body and mind?
Asparagus contains large amounts of vitamin A, C, E and K as well as the difficult to get chromium, a mineral that helps the ability of the body’s insulin to transport glucose from bloodstream to cells. Chromium is a commonly used as a supplement for those suffering blood sugar highs and lows that result in mood swings.
Asparagus also provides folic acid, a B vitamin. It’s also great for your gut; it has a fibre that reduces intestinal disorders linked with anxiety and depression.
Make the most of the asparagus season, it’s good for you!
