Radishes are another one of those root vegetables that everyone tends to typically overlook. This is probably because of its sharp, almost spicy taste along with lack of places to incorporate it into (besides a salad). After doing a bit of research on it, it turns out that it has a few major unique benefits to it. Radish juice turns out to be a very effective diuretic. In layman’s terms, it makes you pee a lot! You are probably wondering why on earth that would be a good thing. For one, increasing the amount of liquids your body releases will clean both your kidney and your bladder. This will leave hardly any room for any buildup to create a urinary tract infection or worse, a kidney stone.
Radishes also contain a group of compounds called isothiocyanates, which have been proven by researchers at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University to affect genetic pathways in cancer cells, thus inducing cancer cell death. It also contains a fair amount of fiber—which helps to fight colon cancer, along with a helping of Vitamin C. Sounds great, right? Well there’s one more problem…how can we incorporate radishes into our diet? That’s easy! Check out this simple, and delicious juice recipe below.
- 2 Carrots
- 15 cherry tomatoes (or 2 regular tomatoes)
- 2 red radishes
1) Peel carrots and cut them into chunks. Do the same for the radishes
2) Remove any stems from the tomatoes. If you are using regular sized tomatoes, cut them into chunks as well.
3) Run everything evenly into a juicer.
4) Make sure nothing is stronger than the other. If it can use a bit more radish, add a bit more radish. If it can use a bit more tomato or carrot, add those too.
5) Serve chilled and enjoy!
