Asparagus is at the top of my list when it comes to vegetables for hormone balancing and health benefits. I love to pick up a fresh bunch at my local farmers market in the spring when they are in season. Asparagus make a delicious vegetable to add to so many dishes like my favorite, roasted asparagus with poached eggs for breakfast. Yum!
Asparagus is an amazing source of fiber, folate and chromium – all which are really important for women dealing with PCOS. Asparagus offers both soluble and insoluble fiber along with pre-biotics to help keep you feeling full and your digestion on track. Folate found in asparagus is a key nutrient in reproductive health as well as a natural aphrodisiac. Chromium is a trace mineral that helps with insulin resistance by transporting glucose from the bloodstream into cells and stabilizes blood sugar levels.
Not only does asparagus offer these awesome PCOS benefits it is packed with vitamins like A, C, E, K & B6. It offers protein and fiber along with antioxidants, amino acids and is a natural anti-inflammatory. This springtime superfood is an easy and delicious way to help balance your hormones.
- Asparagus is grown in 3 colors – white, green & purple – with purple offering higher sugar levels and lower fiber.
