Phytoactive Nutrients

Spanish black radish is known for its unusually high levels of a phytonutrient called glucosinolate that makes it useful as a healing food, particularly for healthy digestion and liver and gallbladder support. Spanish black radish contains four times the amount of glucosinolates found in other common cruciferous vegetables, making it especially impactful to health and disease prevention.3 Interestingly, glucosinolates are responsible for the distinctive scent of cruciferous vegetables, including radishes.

With so many potential benefits, Spanish black radish can be an important instrument in any practitioner’s toolbox. Practitioners may consider using Spanish black radish for:

  • Gallbladder drainage
  • Liver support
  • Detoxification support
  • As a dietary or food-based supplemental source of indole-3-carbinol

How to grow:

Radishes are cool season crops best planted in the spring and fall. While a French breakfast radish—the rosy scarlet radish with the white tip—comes to maturity in less than 25 days after planting, the black Spanish radish takes twice to three times as long to reach maturity. That means the black Spanish radishes planted back in September are now coming to harvest.
