Health Benefits of Radish
Radishes are very good for the liver and stomach and act as a powerful detoxifier too. For many hundreds of years, it was considered by most that radishes would help purify the blood by eliminating toxins and waste. In the 17th century, it was thought that radishes are extremely useful in treating jaundice because they remove bilirubin and keep their production at a stable level.
