I consider the appearance of tender spears of asparagus at the market to be one of the fist signs of Spring. This veggie is loaded with antioxidant vitamins A and C, and its vitamin K is off the charts. In fact, one cup contains 114 percent of your daily value requirement of K. Plus, asparagus is a natural diuretic and might help reduce water retention during PMS. While we are on women's health, you might be interested to know that asparagus is high in folate (naturally occurring folic acid) content, and asparagus is considered a birth defect fighter.
