    Mr. Capicchiano,
    Thank you so so much for all your hard work!
    Shortly: I am a kidney-pancreas transplant recipient.
    Per your recommendations, I’ve been consuming Nettle leaf tea and R-Lipoic acid. You mentioned asparagus benefits for people with altered kidney function. What is your opinion on commercial asparagus root extract in a pill/capsule form? Is it as beneficial as asparagus stem? Is it safe?
    Greatly appreciate your response and your help to others!!!
    Blessings!
