Vigor Trigger: Asparagus

By Elana Horwich

March 15, 2013 | 9:00 am

Asparagus is in season!

Wondering why it has a unique affect on your potty? Me too. I don’t know why. But it does:

  • strengthen and stimulate kidney function.
  • have an abundance of Vitamin K which helps your blood to clot normally.

  • cleanse the body to help rid of toxins.
  • Asparagus was hailed as an aphrodisiac in ancient western and eastern cultures.

    The chocolate most of us grew up on wasn’t really chocolate. It was brown creamy sugar bars with chocolate flavor. As a Vigor Trigger, I am referring to the good stuff, to either pure cacao or artisan dark chocolate made of at least 60% cacao. Hershey’s Special Dark is not on... read on
