Here's What Happens If You Eat Radishes Every Day
By Angel Albring
If you don't like beets, turnips, or radishes, you could miss out on some fantastic side dishes and meals, like roasted beet dip and radish top soup. More importantly, you may miss out on some significant health benefits, especially with radishes, which are known to support a healthy heart, keep you hydrated, and improve the look of your skin.
Radishes are rich in antioxidants, calcium, potassium, and vitamin C and contain substances known to reduce inflammation. If you eat them daily for their health benefits, you should know they are low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories — to enhance the taste, try pairing them with fruits, like in pickled mango radish slaw, or even roast them with honey.
However, high consumption of radishes can have adverse effects on your thyroid, and people with underactive thyroids can experience weight gain and increased tiredness. Additionally, radishes have been shown to increase bile production, which is good for digestion, but if you are prone to gallstones, the increased bile can increase gallstone production.
