Asparagus is best when bought in season (April to June) but is now widely available throughout the year. You can grow asparagus yourself too, although it does take time for asparagus to really produce a crop.
Look for firm but tender asparagus. You can buy either thick or thin stemmed asparagus.
Fresh asparagus is purple at the top.
Asparagus is a natural diuretic. It has been known to make urine go dark and to smell strong which is perfectly natural and will soon pass.
Due to the fact that asparagus is a green juice, you will find it beneficial to have no more than about ¼ of your juice consisting of green juice.
Some individuals may find that too much asparagus juice can be irritating to the kidneys, especially if you have kidney inflammation.
Some of the nutrients in asparagus are damaged when cooking. So when you drink fresh asparagus juice you are getting nutrients that you don't normally get.
Personally, I don't like eating asparagus but I must admit, I do like my asparagus juice!

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.
flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.
Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.
If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.
