Highlight: Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) is an extremely versatile and beneficial vegetable, low calories but rich in fibre and carotenoids. It has been found to support enzymes in the liver that metabolise ethanol, alleviating hangover effects, offering protection to liver cells against the resulting toxins and generally encouraging healthy liver function.

Rich in glutathione, an antioxidant thought to slow the ageing process, it helps protect the skin from both excessive sun and urban pollution. Valued since the Greek Physician Galen of Pergamon (130-200AD), asparagus is still used as a Spring cure for the kidneys and bladder because of its ability to remove toxins.

It is delicious in combination with pasta and in risottos, frittatas and stir-fries, it can be eaten raw, thinly sliced in salads and is an excellent side to both meat and fish.
