Elegant, Nutritious Radishes

The Health-Promoting Radish

Radishes, like broccoli, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts, contain cancer-inhibiting substances. Historically, radishes have been used as a tonic for the liver and gall bladder. They contain a sulphur-based chemical that increases the flow of bile, aiding digestion. Radishes and their greens also contain vitamin C, calcium and protein.
