RADISHES AND THE THYROID

QUESTION OF THE MONTH:

What is the relationship of radishes to the thyroid gland?

ANSWER:

Radishes contain raphanin (mainly sulfur),which is responsible for keeping the production of thyroid and calcitonin (a peptide hormone) in normal balance. With proper amounts of raphanin circulating in blood plasma, the thyroid won't under or over produce these two hormones. This makes balancing the thyroid, treating thyroid diseases as well as Graves disease a small miracle of the tangy, little red radish. The sulfur amino acids in radish juice help break up fat deposits in the liver as an added bonus.

Try juicing 1/2 cup sliced radishes with green tops into your carrot-apple juice for great variety and thyroid health.
