Black Radish Root (Raphanus sativus niger)Latin Name: Raphanus sativus niger
Common Names: Black Radish Root
Black Radish Root is one of the many of the natural herbs offered from Star West Botanicals that are derived from the roots of plants. Known to scientists as Raphanus sativus niger, the Black Radish is a member of the turnip family and similar to red radishes that people enjoy on salads. As food, Black Radish Root (which is actually the part that is eaten) is full of antioxidant properties and a rich source of Vitamin C.
Raphanus sativus niger powder, made from dried Black Radish Root, has long been used to promote healthy liver and digestive function. This herb (actually a root) is also commonly used for its antibacterial, diuretic, and laxative properties.

Medicinal Quality! From Germany. Aroma +!
I bought this powder to capsule and take as a digestive aid. I got the idea from the Endomet GB-3 supplement. Buying bulk is much cheaper. Radish is a copper antagonist (useful to balance).
When I opened the bag, it made the entire kitchen REEK and we had to open the windows! This is a good thing! I want a powerful smelling herb powder, that indicated the oils are strong and it will do it's job in the digestion! It seems to be working well. I notice that when dissolved in water, the stench disappears mostly, and it has a strangely sweet flavor. Almost a fermented taste or smell, like Sauerkraut. So, I often take a teaspoonful in a small shot of water.
