Black Radish Extract
What is Black Radish?
Black radish extract comes from the root of the black radish plant. The black radish, or the Black Spanish radish, is a member of the Brassicaceae family (the same family as spinach, kale, and cabbage) and has been in use for centuries, both as a medicine and as food. It is scientifically known as Raphanus sativus L. Var. niger is referred to as the black radish due to its dark purple or sometimes dark exterior, though it does come with a white inner flesh.
Since ancient times, black radish has been used by the Chinese, Indians and Europeans to help with many different ailments. Other regions have started growing the black radish, and its popularity has increased in recent years as a result of its impressive nutritional profile and fantastic health benefits.
The black radish is slightly larger than the traditional radish and much more bitter and pungent in flavor. This is as a result of the chemical compounds such as glucosinate, Isothiocycinate and myrosinase produced by the plant. Its not-so-appetizing flavor is offset by the tons of health benefits it provides. The black radish has earned the moniker ‘the black magic’ due to being a powerhouse of nutrients and antioxidants. Due to its strong flavor, black radish is almost exclusively used to make supplements.
