Asparagus General Information
Asparagus is a tubular perennial with feathery foliage. This herb can grow to about six foot. It has long fronds of delicate needle like leaves and bell shaped yellow green flowers that produce small bright red berries. The plant grows naturally in central and southern Europe, the Middle East, western Siberia, and northern Africa and is also cultivated worldwide, often in home gardens. Known mainly as a vegetable looking like long spears, it is the root that is used medicinally and unearthed after the shoots have been cut. Judging from ancient Egyptian tomb drawings, asparagus was cultivated as long ago as 4,000 BC. In the 1st Century, Dioscorides, the Greek physician, recommended a decoction of the root to improve urine flow and to treat kidney problems, jaundice, and sciatica (a nerve issue that caused pain in the back and legs). He also recommended holding the chewed root against aching teeth. Also in the 1st Century, Pliny wrote that, ‘asparagus, of all the plants of the garden, receives the most praiseworthy care’. 2nd Century Physician, Galen, described Asparagus as ‘cleansing and healing’. Claims for medicinal benefits of Asparagus persist to this day. Its botanical species name, ‘officinalis’ indicates its recognition as an official therapeutic herb.

Ancient Grecians and Romans used Asparagus for its diuretic properties. Hippocrates highly regarded Asparagus as a medicinal plant that was used for treating all kinds of conditions from toothaches to healing certain types of cancer. Today, Asparagus is still used as a diuretic, and although there is no scientific evidence, it has also been used to purify the blood. It works great in treating kidney stones and urinary tract infections. It helps flush out the kidneys and help prevent the formation of kidney stones. Sometimes Asparagus is used as an aphrodisiac because the root of this plant contains steroidal glycosides that directly affect hormone production and can very well influence emotions. Due to its high folic acid content, eating young Asparagus shoots and seeds will help in the production of new red blood cells. This plant contains vitamins A, B1, B2, C and E, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, iron and folic acid. This plant can be used to treat gout, dropsy, rheumatism, nausea, and calms an upset stomach. In India, it is used to promote fertility, reduce menstrual cramping, and increase milk production in nursing mothers. Chinese pharmacists save the best Asparagus roots for their families and friends, believing that it will increase feelings of compassion and love.
