Turnips, although not the most common vegetable, are considered a nutritious and healthy root vegetable. It contains antioxidants, folic acid, sterols, polysaccharides, as well as vitamins B, C, PP and provitamin A. In addition, turnip has a positive effect on cardiac function, preventing excessive platelet formation and reducing blood pressure.
This vegetable also promotes liver function and stimulates the secretion of bile, preventing the formation of gallstones and reducing cholesterol levels. In addition, turnips contain lysozyme, a substance with antimicrobial properties.
Particular attention should be paid to turnip leaves, which are a source of vitamin K, which prevents the development of Alzheimer’s disease and helps strengthen bones. Turnip juice is also used to treat coughs, sore throats and restore voice after voice loss.
However, Rospotrebnadzor reminds of the importance of limiting turnip consumption for those who are prone to allergic reactions, have increased stomach sensitivity, suffer from complicated forms of diabetes, or have other medical contraindications. It is also not recommended to include turnips in the diet of children under two years of age.
