Why eat radishes and how to get rid of their pungent taste?

Although many consider the pinkish-red balls to be a typically Czech vegetable, the truth is that radishes were already known in ancient Egypt. A large number of vitamins and minerals are hidden in radishes, especially vitamin C and B, as well as potassium, phosphorus and calcium. Most people only eat the radish root, but the young leaves are also very tasty and can be added to, for example, a salad.

If you are deterred from eating radishes by their slightly pungent taste, there is a simple trick to get rid of it. Just cut the radishes into slices, salt them and let them rest for a while. The salt will cause the radishes to release their juice and subsequently not burn as much.

In addition to providing our body with important vitamins and minerals, radishes also have an antibacterial and antifungal effect on our body. It can thus help our digestive system in the fight against various harmful bacteria and fungi. Last but not least, they also benefit digestion thanks to their high fiber content.
