Asparagus is a member of the lily family, which includes leeks, garlic and onion, that is rich in folate. Chi's Enterprise Asparagus Extract is rich in B vitamins that help in maintaining healthy levels of homocysteine, which is produced in the blood when an amino acid (methionine) breaks down in the body. Vitamin B, especially folate, B6, and B12 play a key role in converting homocysteine into cysteine, which then gets converted back to methionine as per the normal methylation cycle to support cardiovascular health. Folate is also essential for the growth of the fetus during pregnancy. In addition, vitamin B helps in maintaining healthy levels of blood sugar by ensuring proper metabolism of starches and sugars in the body.
