Description

Horseradish is a root vegetable known for its pungent taste and odor.

It has been used worldwide for thousands of years, typically as a condiment but also for medicinal purposes.

This root contains multiple compounds that may provide health benefits, including antibacterial and anticancer effects.

Benefits include but not limited to:

  • Anticancer effects – Glucosinolates and isothiocyanates in this root vegetable may protect against cancer by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, as well as promoting their death. Some horseradish compounds, such as sinigrin, may also act as antioxidants and fight cell damage caused by free radicals. What’s more, peroxidase, an enzyme found in this root, helps activate and boost a powerful anticancer compound that targets human pancreatic cancer cells.
  • Antibacterial properties
  • Improved Respiratory health
  • Treat acute Sinus infections and Bronchitis
  • Fights infections of the Kidneys, Bladder or Urethra ( urinary tract infections ).

Horseradish is Likely Unsafe for:

  1. Children less than 4 years old – it can cause digestive tract problems.
  2. Pregnant or breast-feeding woman – Horseradish contains mustard oil, which can be toxic and irritating. Could also potentially cause a miscarriage when consuming large amounts.
  3. If you suffer from stomach ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease or other digestive tract conditions, it is best to avoid Horseradish use.
  4. Underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) – using Horseradish could possibly worsen the condition.
  5. Suffering from Kidney problems – Horseradish might increase urine flow and could be a problem.
