In the time of the pharaohs, radishes were seen as a valuable food source. workers building the pyramids were paid in garlic, onions and radishes!
Radishes are a rich source of potassium, calcium, sulphur, vitamin C, folic acid and selenium. They help to prevent cancer, and are wonderful for assisting the gall-bladder and the liver. They are very popular in France as a pre-dinner snack, as they encourage the gall-bladder to pump more bile into the stomach. This aids the digestion of fats.
Those with thyroid problems should avoid eating radishes, and none of us should overdose on them. Eat a few, fresh, crisp, organic radishes for best effect!
