Asparagus :

Very low in calories, asparagus benefits from a high nutritional density. It contains many nutrients (vitamin C, A, E, magnesium, iron, folic acid). It also contains soft and digestible fibers that promote the regulation of transit (pectin’s and mucilage’s retain water) while stimulating it (thanks to the celluloses of the stem). Asparagus thus gently remedies a tendency to constipation.
