Hello. You may know me as muli or radish, or even as the vegetable that can stink up a room. Jokes aside, my taste is a tad too pungent for some, but I am highly appreciated by people of North India, especially Punjab where I form a significant ingredient in their dishes. I can be eaten raw, cooked or pickled. I also come with a host of health benefits.
I am known to cause flatulence but that is mainly due to my superpower of optimizing and speeding the digestion and promoting regular excretory patterns along with relieving symptoms of constipation. I am also extremely useful in treating jaundice and various urinary conditions as well as healing the symptoms of piles. And this is a hidden truth about me, but I can heal several diseases. I am a great source of anthocyanins, which reduces occurrence of heart disease. They are connected to treatment of colon, kidney, intestinal, stomach and oral cancer. Then, my detoxifying properties make me valuable in the treatment of Leucoderma. Finally, vitamin C, phosphorus, zinc and some members of vitamin-B complex in me boosts skin health.
