Top 3 Health Benefits of Radish

Have you ever been conned to eat something you despise, and then actually grown to like it? My list is, or rather used to be, fairly long. And somewhere right on top was radish, or rather the humble mooli. Let’s take a look at some of the other benefits of this root vegetable:

1. Saves those RBCs
Radish is known to control damage to our red blood cells, and in the process also increases oxygen supply to the blood. If you eat it as part of your daily salad intake, without going overboard of course, radish also provides your system with ample roughage and fibers, therefore improving your digestion. It also regulates bile production, safeguards your liver and the gall bladder, and is great for taking care of water retention. Radishes are a good source for anthocyanins that keep our hearts functioning properly, reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Plus they are high on vitamin C, folic acid, and flavonoids too. Controls Blood Pressure: Radish also provides your body with potassium, which can help lower your blood pressure, and keep your blood flow in control, especially if you are known to suffer from hypertension. According to Ayurveda, radish is believed to have a cooling effect on the blood.
