Weight loss: 4 good reasons to eat asparagus

Its diverse fibers (gum, pectin ...) gently improve transit, without the risk of irritating the intestinal mucous membranes. It also contains prebiotics that help in regulating digestive problems.
It is rich in vitamin K1, which, in addition to its main role in blood clotting, is necessary for the growth and regeneration of bone tissue. Thus it protects against disorders related to demineralization (osteoporosis).
