Black Radish Root creates a tonic effect on the respiratory system, activates the liver cells, maintains a healthy gallbladder, aids digestion, facilitates a diuretic effect, is cleansing, is antibacterial, and is an excellent coadjutant for a hepatic colic by stimulating the secretion of bile. Black Radish Root is rich in vitamin C which makes it an interesting ally during winter months to help fight coughs, infections and free radicals. Black radish also contains B vitamins and sulfur. Its high content of fiber increase peristaltic movements and is a helpful laxative for constipation and bile movement.
Radish, Garden Raphanus sativus L. (Wild Radish: Raphanus raphanistrum L.)
Radishes were used to help support coughs, bronchitis, asthma, joint pain, gout, respiratory complaints and digestive disorders. Culpeper said that "it provokes urine and is good for the stone and gravel."
The hot, pungent roots of radish were eaten raw or put in pottages, sauces and stews. The leaves were added to porrays, and the young seed pods included in salads.
Several varieties of radish were grown by the ancient Egyptian, Greeks and Romans. Pliny recommended oil of radish to "smooth roughness of the skin on the face."The plant was used by the Anglo-Saxons, and listed by Aelfric. Because they were plentiful in the wild and had similar properties, radishes were seldom cultivated in medieval gardens in England.

Spanish Black Radish was prescribed by a naturopath as I had difficulty with digestion. I want to say it really does work! My digestion has improved and I am sleeping better at night. The naturopath said it kills parasites.

I would express these concerns to a qualified healthcare provider who would be able to carefully consider your husband's situation and take appropriate measures. It may be something present in the liquid formula, or a combination of nutrients that may be compromising his digestion. It may be that your husband is deficient in the necessary enzymes required for adequate digestion.

Your husband would benefit from an herbal formula that strengthens the stomach. Something like Ju Pi Zhu Ru Tang is Very helpful - but may need some modifications.

IS THIS PRODUCT SAFE FOR PEOPLE ON CHEMO?

There are no known drug interactions concerning black radish root, but you should check first with a qualified healthcare practitioner before taking it. Spanish black radish root has been used to relieve a variety of liver, gallbladder, and gastrointestinal disorders. Its antioxidant properties are due, in part, to its high levels of vitamins A, C, and E although other antioxidant compounds are present.
Vitamin C supplementation during chemotherapy is a controversial subject, although there is a growing wave of opinion that encourages the use of antioxidants. A Finnish non-randomized clinical study published from 1992 showed that the provision of B vitamins, large doses of vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, fatty acids, and minerals to improve immunity resulted in significantly prolonged survival, especially when started early. These results were compared to a group who received chemotherapy alone.
Take 1 capsule, 3 times daily, with meals.
