Healthy and delicious: the asparagus harvest is just around the corner

In southern Germany, the asparagus growers have already harvested the first stalks. The Association of South German Asparagus and Strawberry Growers (VSSE) said that the asparagus harvest from unheated cultivation would start rolling in late March. This means that the beneficial vegetables are ready two weeks earlier this year than in the past asparagus season.

All in all, the asparagus growers expect an extremely productive asparagus season with high quality. The cold winter was good for the plants because they saved their energy during the low temperatures and they are now fully available for fast, vigorous growth, reports the VSSE. The asparagus growers expect a high quality right from the start, as the asparagus spears will be particularly tender on the one hand due to the rapid growth and on the other hand the stalk thickness will be high and uniform due to the good soil conditions and sufficient soil moisture. But asparagus is not only popular with gourmets, many also used it because of its positive health effects.

Naturopathy: Asparagus has a positive effect on health. Asparagus, for example, is said to have a positive effect on the nervous system, cell growth (skin, hair) and digestion. Asparagus also contains a variety of valuable vitamins (A, C, B1, B2 and E) as well as minerals and trace elements such as iron, calcium, potassium, copper, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. Vitamins C and E in particular have a preventive effect against vascular diseases. The fiber contains stimulates the kidney and digestive function, whereby metabolic degradation substances can be better excreted. Potassium salts and aspartic acid also have a positive effect on kidney activity and the excretion of metabolites. In addition, the zinc supports wound healing, strengthens the connective tissue and strengthens the vessels. Calcium and phosphorus, which are also contained in asparagus, can help to strengthen the bones, iron and magnesium support blood formation and prevent muscle cramps. (fp)
