Asparagus Contains High Dietary Fiber – Food 23

We love to consume green vegetable frequently, one of them is Asparagus with scientific name Asparagus officinalis.

We always get this plant from nearby grocery with reasonable price.

As you might know that there are at least 3 forms (types or kinds) of fibers in the nature:

- prebiotic fiber
- insoluble fiber
- and soluble fiber

Many people call dietary fiber instead of prebiotic fiber which important for people health and well-being, especially in respect to intestine health.

Our gut has “bad” and “good” bacteria, then, the good bacteria “need” dietary fiber as their source of “food.”

The good bacteria will make our digestive system healthier by producing nutrient to feed colon cells.

Nutrient contains some crucial fatty acids, especially short chain ones. They are (just for example):

- acetate
- propionate
- and butyrate.

Sure, there are many other health benefit to consume Asparagus. We will talk later on (in other posts).

  4. Graciass por esta importante información sobre los efectos del consumo de esparragos en la flora intestinal del colón. Pondré más atención en mis próximas compras, el problema es que esparragos frescos no es posible conseguirlos durante todo el año. Supongo que consumirlos en conserva no será igual. Saludos cordiales.

  13. I really had no idea that asparagus could do so much to improve digestive health. This is definitely something I need to add to my diet with cold and flu season approaching!
