    Daikon radish has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries for its many benefits, including its ability to calm inflammation in the skin! But how is radish considered anti-inflammatory for the body?

    In traditional Chinese medicine, the body is viewed as a system of interconnected parts that work together to maintain balance and harmony. When the body is out of balance, whether from environmental factors, stress, or diet, illness and disease can occur. Inflammation is one of the most common imbalances that can occur in the body, and it is often associated with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

    According to Chinese medicine, daikon radish is a cooling food that can help reduce inflammation in the body but it’s also rich in vitamins C and B6, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which all help to promote healthy skin.

    Here’s how to create this delicious braised daikon, using really commonly found pantry items!
