What are the benefits of radish?

Planning your salad for the day? How about the seasonal super- vegetable - Radish?

Radish is good source of  vitamin C and several other vitamins and minerals along with phytochemicals such as indoles, which detoxify, and the powerful antioxidant flavonoids zeaxanthin, lutein, and beta carotene.
Radishes also contain an important isothiocyanate antioxidant compound called sulforaphane, a proven cancer fighter. They remove bilirubin from the liver, preventing jaundice, and perform other healthful tasks like purifying kidney and urinary systems, regulating blood pressure, relieving congestion, and preventing respiratory problems such as asthma or bronchitis.

To liven up your  salad and get some healthful benefits at the same time , how about buying  a bunch of radishes and slicing  them in your today’s  tossed salad?
