Okay this might be a weird question but I'm wondering if asparagus extract pills give you the same diuretic benefit as eating actual asparagus ? I'm asking this because I like the effect asparagus gives me as a diuretic for my bodybuilding competitions but the problem is I hate the taste of asparagus. So a pill would be a lot easier for me if I works. The company that makes it makes claims that 2 servings of asparagus extract is equal to half a pound of asparagus. So my overall question is will asparagus extract expel water the same rate as eating actual asparagus ???
