Quinoa is good for all the doshas. People trying to balance Vata can eat it with a little olive oil or ghee. Asparagus contains a unique carbohydrate called inulin that does not get digested in the anterior part of the intestine, but travels to the large intestine where it is broken down by the bacteria residing there (the Bifidibacteria and Lactobacilli). These bacteria use inulin as food to thrive and multiply, thereby lowering the risk of colon cancer and allergies, and increasing the absorption of nutrients. Research into the role of prebiotics in digestive health show that asparagus, as a high-fiber vegetable, aids in digestion and helps boost the body's immune system. The unique carbohydrate inulin, and the dietary fiber (which is a combination of insoluble and soluble fiber), relieves constipation, dyspepsia, ulcers, diarrhea, dysentery, and colic, and improves digestion by increasing the levels of the enzymes amylase and lipase, which digest carbohydrates and fat, respectively. • Radish is useful in treating diabetes, fever, cold, cough, asthma, allergic conditions, throat disorders. Its flowers, fruit and seeds are also used for medicinal purpose. Fresh radish is one among those substances advised to be had on daily basis, as per Ayurveda. • Edamame is a snack that has a lot of nutritional value; however, recent research is also proving it to be effective in several disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, cardiovascular disease and cancer. These edamame health benefits are attributed to its content of flavonoids, phenolic acids, & phytosterols.
