Multi-talented asparagus – the 'policer' of the kidneys:
The phosphorus contained in asparagus improves the transport, storage and utilisation of energy in the human body. These healthy stalks stimulate the metabolism and have a dehydrating effect due to their high aspartic acid and potassium content. The high iron content increases oxygen in the blood. The high nitrogen content stimulates kidney activity and leads to the well-known diuretic effect of asparagus in cleaning the kidneys, ureter and bladder. In addition, asparagus is very rich in vitamins (the daily requirement of vitamins A, E, C and folic acid are covered by 500g of asparagus) and, with only 17kcal/100g, is particularly low in calories.
Fresh salads and vegetables:
Baby spinach, dandelion, chard and radish – they all supply the body with a lot of vitamin C and iron and also provide potassium, magnesium, folic acid and beta-carotene – a colourful mixture that stimulates metabolism, cell formation and digestion and thus gets the body going.
This knotweed plant is characterised by a colourful mix of minerals that strengthens the heart and stimulates circulation. A pure medicine in rhubarb is the 'anthraquinones', active substances that slightly stimulate the tissue of the liver bile system and the intestinal mucosa. They are thus regarded as aids to 'internal house cleaning', triggering a mild and harmless cleaning of the intestines and gently and naturally discharging them.
