asparagus 

Asparagus is detoxifying and a diuretic that helps body remove excess fluids by stimulating the kidneys. It's known for giving urine a strong smell after you've eaten it.

Asparagus is high in folate, B vitamins, potassium - but also has Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, rutin, manganese, glutathione, tryptophan, copper, phosphorous, iron, magnesium, protein, zinc, selenium, and a little calcium. It's also a fair source of fiber.  

It helps prevent heart disease and arteriosclerosis.

Asparagus also helps balance intestinal flora by  increasing “good” bacteria.

Asparagus was believed to iimprove fertility, reduce menstrual cramps, increase milk production for breast feeding mothers, and even as an aphrodisiac.

I'm actually surprised at how many people actually like asparagus. Maybe it has something to do with that aphrodisiac thing...
