Researchers out of the University of Allahabad in Allahabad, India, have tested the effects of radish juice on blood glucose levels.

And their results were very exciting.

The researchers tested different amounts of radish juice on “normal” rats as well as sub- and mild-diabetic rats.

(Note: I do not support animal testing. This information is presented for informational purposes only. These studies can be done without harming animals. Hopefully one day they all will.)

Now check out these results.

At 300 mg/kg of body eight (which the researchers determined was the most effective), normal rats saw a maximum reduction in blood glucose levels of 15.9% in three hours. Sub- and mild-diabetic rats saw a reduction of 23.8% and 28.3%, respectively, in the same amount of time.

Pretty amazing.

The researchers even concluded that the radish juice performed comparably to the synthetic drug glibenclamide.

Of course, as in all cases, do not start or change any treatment programs without consulting your licensed healthcare practitioner. This article is for informational purposes only.

So ask your doctor and see if radishes or radish juice might be appropriate for you.
