Slice them, grate them, quarter them….. these beautiful red vegetables are a fantastic add to a salad and here’s why
1 – Researchers have discovered that radishes are very good for the liver and stomach, and they act as a powerful detoxifier as well. Studies have found that radishes help to purify the blood and eliminate toxins and waste.
2 – They are packed with antioxidants!
3 – It is fantastic for heart health. The potassium in radishes is also known to reduce blood pressure by widening the flow of the blood, instead of forcing it through narrow, constricted channels.
4 – Radishes have 1 gram of fiber per serving. Consuming a couple of servings each day can help you reach your daily fiber intake. This in turn fights constipation and keeps your bowels healthy.
5 – Antifungal properties. Many studies have found that the radish is naturally antifungal and in fact, it helps to fight candida (a yeast infection found in the gut that can lead to many unpleasant, every day complaints)
