Radishes are one of my favorite vegetables. Here are some great reasons to eat at least one radish a day.

Radishes can stimulate the liver and improve elimination.

Radishes are a fantastic weight loss detox and beauty remedies food.

Radishes can be used to clear your sinuses, for hoarseness, excessive phlegm and sore throats.Reasons to Eat Radishes

Radishes can help keep your thyroid hormones in balance.

Radishes can cleanse your kidneys and decrease water retention.

Radishes are also a beauty remedies food. They can rejuvenate your skin because of their high sulfur, silicon and vitamin C content. The sulfurous mustard oil in radishes stimulates the circulation system which can help make your skin look radiant.

You might need to eat more radishes if you suffer from:

  • poor skin quality, brittle nails and hair, dental cavities, atherosclerosis, lung disorders, which can be caused by silicon deficiency.
  • acne, arthritis, brittle hair and nails, immune dysfunction, memory loss, rashes, slow wound healing, which can be caused by sulfur deficiency.

Remember that sulfurous foods should be combined with fatty foods (avocado, nuts, some seeds, etc.) for proper digestion. If you suffer from excessive gas, eat sulfur-rich foods with salty vegetables, for example, seaweed.

I would like to share with you this healthy Cucumber Soup recipe I adopted from www.thedailygreen.com and which you can use as one of my  favorites to make you feel and look fabulous during a swimsuit season.
