iVillage.com: Foods That Are Healthier Than You Think

Horseradish

Even though it’s just tiny a condiment in your Bloody Mary or on your fish sandwich, the benefits of horseradish are just as strong as its taste, Batayneh says. “It’s rich in glucosinolates, compounds that are also found in broccoli that fight cancer by boosting liver detoxification and suppressing the growth of tumors. Horseradish also produces allylisothiocyanate, which acts as an antibacterial agent to boost immune health and fight off infections like UTIs (urinary tract infections).” And, while you don’t want to go out and start eating large quantities of it (too much can cause stomach distress, and pregnant or lactating women should avoid it altogether), Batayneh says two teaspoons should be enough to add flavor and reap its healthy rewards.
