Properties of a depurative salad
This salad is especially hot because of some sulphurous compounds called glucosinolates. These substances are characteristic in all cruciferous vegetables such as arugula, mustard, cress and radishes. Scientific studies show that they possess antioxidant and anticancer properties.
The spicy flavor in traditional Chinese medicine, has rubefacient properties, provides heat to the body and protects the liver. Suitable for people with cholesterol.
