On one of my trips to the grocery store, I saw beautiful and very fresh radishes on sale. Although they were not on my list, the beauty and the price convinced me to develop a salad for Foodellette. Radishes may not be a beloved root vegetable, but they are very healthy and should be eaten more often.
Radishes are a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production which is vital for healthy skin and strong and flexible blood vessels. They also have anticancer properties. Radishes are powerful antifungal and can fight off fungus like Candida albicans, responsible for yeast infection. They can also boost liver function, helping detoxify the liver and heal against damage.
Everything is good in moderation, eating substantial amounts of radishes may interfere with thyroid hormone production. Also since radishes increase bile production, talk to your doctor about consuming it if you have gallstones.
