Radish Health Benefits

5 Things: Radishes


Radishes add a nice crispy texture and a tangy bitterness to salads, but do they offer anything for you nutritionally?

  1. They're beneficial for your teeth, hair, gums, nerves, and nails.
  2. They can relieve constipation.
  3. They contain 30 mg of calcium and .4 mg of iron per cup.
  4. They're low in calories (19 per cup), but contain 2g of fiber so they're filling.
  5. They're good for cooling you down, so it's good to eat them in the Summer or if you have a fever.

I love radishes. Had them since I was little. We grow them every summer, so I can't imagine one without other :D:D:D

Love them - especially in the summer. I use them in a salad with cucumbers, carrots, onions and radishes diced on top of spinach chiffonade with a little olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper on top of couscous. So yummy!

My grandpa used to LOVE radishes and he always grew them in his garden. I remember going to my grandparents and eating salads with lots of garden radishes in them...yummy. I love the red ones, but daikon radishes are SO yummy. They're a little milder than the red ones and I think they taste a bit sweeter.

hmmm, these fall into the "beet" range, i just can't seem to get into those veggies, even knowing all the health benefits. my dad has always liked them, though. he always scams them out of our salads as we won't eat them ;P maybe i should give them another chance.....
