Radishes are an often overlooked vegetable with wonderful healing properties, from protecting you from cancer to boosting kidney health.
adishes are high in folic acid, something pregnant women need especially, but so do the rest of us. They are also high in vitamin C, potassium, phosphorous, sulfer, and magnesium. Also in radishes are anthocyanins. This combination of nutrients constitutes a very powerful anti-cancer cocktail. Radishes and their juice and greens have been very helpful in fighting oral, liver, colon, kidney, stomach and intestinal cancers.
Radishes are also helpful in treating gallbladder and liver ailments, as well as helping to flush the kidneys so that kidney stones and gallstones don’t develop in the body.
For a great way to prepare radishes or to enjoy some tasty combinations, you can find thousands of recipes on the Internet. One of the easiest ways to utilize the nutrients in radishes is to eat them raw, sliced in salads, and by adding the greens to other less astringent tasting greens like lettuce or dandelion greens harvested from your own backyard for a extra-special anti-cancer treat. Radishes are a wonderful vegetable to plant in your own organic garden too; they grow well in all climate zones and will be one of the fastest growing foods you plant.
