Radish Health Benefits

5 Things: Radishes

Radishes add a nice crispy texture and a tangy bitterness to salads, but do they offer anything for you nutritionally?

  1. They're beneficial for your teeth, hair, gums, nerves, and nails.
  2. They can relieve constipation.
  3. They contain 30 mg of calcium and .4 mg of iron per cup.
  4. They're low in calories (19 per cup), but contain 2g of fiber so they're filling.
  5. They're good for cooling you down, so it's good to eat them in the Summer or if you have a fever.
