A natural diuretic

The root vegetable asparagus contains quite some minerals, especially kalium, as well as many trace elements.

One of the properties of asparagus is that it acts as a diuretic, in a way that is clearly different from the way synthetic diuretics act.  It improves the flow of blood in through the kidneys, which increases filtration so that more urine is produced.  However, in doing so, asparagus does not disturb the physiological balance between urination and absorption.  The result is intensive diuresis with a higher cleaning effect than synthetical diuretics can achieve, without washing away the minerals out of the body.

Asparagine acids contained in asparagus have a beneficial effect on the metabolism, such that the fat cells lose their surplus of waste products.  They support the urine organs in the disposal of water accumulations in the tissues, especially in the legs.

The diuretic properties of asparagus have a positive effect in case of overweight, diseases of the heart and defective blood circulation that might be combined with a slightly increased blood pressure, and in case of water accumulations in the body's tissues.

It is recommended that asparagus extract be taken over a prolonged period.
