Want some horseradish?

Horseradish is a superfood! This root from the mustard family packs a goodly amount of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants along with natural Vitamin C to fight viral infections and boost immunity. Horseradish contains many volatile compounds such as various isothiocyanates and sinigrin which tout some pretty awesome detoxification functions. Some of the phyto-chemical compounds in horseradish stimulate digestive enzymes that facilitate digestion and horseradish also has anti-inflammatory, diuretic (increases urine output), and nerve soothing effects. Top this off with the fact that horseradish helps remove free-radicals from the body to protect you from cancers. But wait, there’s more! Horseradish is a magnificent blood tonic that’s loaded with sodium, potassium, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium. The biggest drawback here is that store-bought versions are all made with GMO soybean oil. But I get around that by grinding my own horseradish in a blender; pouring in grapeseed oil and some white vinegar to bring it to the consistency and flavor I like. Feeling nauseous and sick? Do what I do; eat a healthy helping of horseradish straight up! Works for me every time.

It'll either kill or cure ya! ;-)

Now do you want some horseradish?
