— The radish microgreens improve digestion and have a moderate choleretic effect.
Bile is made by the liver and accumulated in the gallbladder. During eating, bile is secreted into the intestine, splitting the food residues. Bile helps extract nutrients from fats: essential fatty acids (omega-3), vitamins A, D, E, and K.
If there is a failure in this process, we begin to feel abdominal bloating, belching, flatulence, constipation often appear. Another symptom is a craving for sweets after eating, because the fats have not been digested. The thyroid function is reduced, the level of cholesterol increases. Pain in the right hypochondrium, shoulder, shoulder blade, and headaches can also be symptoms of incorrect operation of the gallbladder.
