Have you ever wondered what are the health benifits of red beets and daikon?
Beets are loaded with vitamins and minerals and low in calories and fat. They also contain inorganic nitrates and pigments, both of which have a number of health benefits including lowering of blood preasure significantly.Eating beets may also increase oxygen use by up to 20% -the compound nitrate appears to affect physical performance by improving the efficiency of mitochondria responsible for energy production in our cells. ,The beets have moderate amount of fibers which help proper digestions and elimination. It is a tasty vegetables that can be baked, steamed or used raw in a salad.
The daikon radish is one of those little known superfoods that appears often as a garnish in sushi restaurants. I first came across the Daikon when living in Japan and later when I was studying the Macrobiotic diet - the daikon radish played a major role in weight loss and detox.
But with very low calories/cholesterol and a high amount of fiber, it’s a shame to relegate it to just a garnish. Instead, It is very high in Vitamin C, potassium, and phosphorus. Additionally, it contains several beneficial enzymes that aid in digestion as well as phytonutrients that help to fight against cancer. Daikon is used to help to strengthen the immune system and cleansing the blood.
Daikon has many unbelievable therapeutic virtues and it is rich in nutrients. It is high in minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin C, vitamins of group B, and fibers, it has fat-burning properties because it metabolizes them. This is not by chance that in Japan it is served with Salmon or tempura or fried foods. Since it has detoxifying, anti-swelling, diuretic, cleansing virtues it is recommendable for those who suffer from water retention and cellulite. It relieves congestions, so, it is useful if you have a cough or cold.
