However, since this by-product has been reported to be rich in many bioactive phytochemicals, it might be utilisable as a supplement in foods or natural drugs for its therapeutic effects. In this study it was identified that saponins from old stems of asparagus (SSA) exerted potential inhibitory activity on tumour growth and metastasis.”
