The healing power of radish

  1. Rettich is a direct relative of radish and black radish. You could also call rettich a white-skinned black radish. Rettich contains all the healing power that radishes and radishes have, only in a slightly toned down form. A black radish is strongest in its healing power and tastes a bit sharper. The advantage of radish is that you can eat more of it. Ultimately, that may well yield more healing power.

Rettich in history

  1. Rettich was known in ancient Egypt at least 2500 BC. It was widely used as a vegetable in Europe and North America until the mid-20th century. After that, the fresh supermarketization of society began and people are turning to choose only from the supermarket offer, in which dozens of vegetables were missing. At the beginning of the 21st century, Western people are returning to that. More and more often he will start a vegetable garden, do some shopping in an organic shop and rediscover the 'forgotten vegetables'.

Eating tips rettich

  1. You can eat radish without peeling it. Usually it is grated or chopped into a salad, but you can also cook it with potatoes. A special way to enjoy radish is to top it with salt and vinegar. You can make your own sour vegetables and that is often a lot better than pickled vegetables from the store. You can accompany the radish with carrot, cauliflower and white cabbage to make a delicious sour vegetable mix like they do well in Poland. They are also good there in Indonesia and they call it atjar. The advantage of preparing rettich in this way is that the sharpness is off the taste. You can also use radish as a decorative vegetable. You can cut beautiful round white discs from radish to serve as a garnish.

Vegetable turret with radish, cucumber, carrot and courgette

  1. Rettich variation: cut four round radish slices. Do the same for cucumber, carrot and zucchini. Stack the slices and make turrets. On each plate serve a turret topped with balsamic vinegar and seasoned with oregano and thyme. Instead of balsamic vinegar, you can also mix honey, mustard and vinegar to use as a dressing for the vegetable turret.

Nutritional value of radish

  1. The nutritional value of radish is the same as that of radish, except for minor differences. 100 grams of the radish contain all the vitamins and minerals we need, albeit in amounts of 3% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). Yet these are high percentages. Our radish contains a lot of vitamin C; 18% of the RDI. Folic acid is also more than average: 6% of the RDI. Furthermore, 100 grams of radish contains 5% of the RDI of potassium. The latter percentage also applies to vitamin B6. In fact, it makes little sense to distinguish all individual vitamins and minerals in their individual RDA percentages because these substances, together with bioflavonoids in vegetables and fruit, have a mutually reinforcing effect. This is called synergesis. This effect is well known but cannot be measured in the body due to the complexity and the large number of different substances, at least the current scientific standards are not yet capable of this.

Rettich, good for bile, liver and digestion

  1. Rettich stimulates bile production. The bile ensures that substances are excreted that allow the liver to function better. People with a malfunctioning liver and people with a reduced digestion thus benefit greatly from eating radish. Radish can also help prevent and remove gallstones. Rettich stimulates the entire digestion so that nutrients from other foods are also better absorbed. That is why it is good to eat a radish salad or some radishes during a meal.

Rettich purifies the blood

  1. Rettich purifies the blood. That is why it is used in a spring cure. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that scavenges free radicals. This is important because a spring cure can release toxins stored in the body; these can be defused more quickly by means of vitamin C and other antioxidants in radish.

  1. Allyl isothiocyanates are cancer-preventing substances. These phytonutrients are contained in radish, just like in the family members radish and black radish or black radish. These substances can mainly prevent brain cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer and bladder cancer. Allyl isothiocyanates are also the active ingredients in stopping urinary tract infections. These substances can effectively fight bacteria, such as the salmonella bacteria. There is a scientific study in which the cantaloupe melon has been successfully tested by injecting it with allyl isothiocyanates. The salmonella bacteria appeared to be eliminated by this. From this you can conclude that the salmonella bacteria is destroyed by this substance in types of cabbage. In addition, allyl isothiocyanates can improve the functioning of the blood. More white blood cells are produced that have an important function in our immune system. That is a common way in which the cabbage improves human health.
