  karma level 68900

Growing in the ground, root vegetables seem to absorb a great amount of the nutrients mother earth has to offer, which is why people who want to be healthier are strongly recommended to make them a fixed addition to the menu.

You'd be well advised to start with these eight:

1. Yam

One of the most veried root vegetables, with over 200 types, is the yam, with colors ranging from yellow to purple. All the types of yams share high levels of vitamin B6 and potassium. There are evidence to suggest that the essence of the yam contains a chemical that serves as a substitute to the female hormone and eases the symptoms of menopause.  
Although it was never proven scientifically, the Chinese have been using yams to keep up their health for hundreds of years.
2. Ginger

Ginger is the root of a plant that Chinese medicine has been using for 2000 years. Ginger offers extensive health advantages, including help with digestion, treating osteoperosis, alleviating nausea, helping heart conditions and treating colds and headaches. All this makes it a kind of natural super food.
3. Beet

Beets, in their royal purple, are loaded with goodies, and are a great source of energy for the body. They are high in sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron and phosperous. They are also a fiber food and are high vitamin A, vitamin C and niacin - they are amazing, especially considering they are quite cheap. Just put them in the fridge for a few hours and you've got a very healthy snack.
4. Radish

The ancient Greeks made much use of Radish in their healing. The radish is high on vitamin C and is very good at lowering your bad cholesterol. It will also help your urinary system and will increase the supply of oxygen to your bloodstream. 
5. Fennel

The vegetable with the anise-like taste is a regular component in mouth higene products, like toothpaste, breath fresheners and anti-acids. The reason is that the oils in the fennel have great health benefits.
In addition, the fennel serves as a natural medicine for anemia as it is very rich in iron. Digestion and respiratory problems are a few more things the fennel can help you with. For all these reasons - we highly recommend it makes its way into your menu.
6. Carrot

Research in Holland has lately shown that orange and yellow vegetables were the most efficient in guarding the consumer against cardiovascular disease (CVD). Of that category, it was the carrot that were the most prominent, the most effective.
If that's not reason enough to say 'what's up doc?' and start munching on one, then they are also loaded with antioxidants and do wonders for our eyes, because of the beta-croten which our bodies convert to vitamin A.

Research has also found that eating carrots may help the health of your lungs.

7. Onion

Whenever you are eating an onion, try to peel as little of it as possible, because that's exactly where its flavonoids, that contain great anti inflammatory benefits, reside at their highest concentration.

In addition, it was found that eating onions increases bone density, which is especially important for the adult and mature ages. Eating onions will help your body protect you from infections and will reduce your risk for mouth and tracea cancers.
8. Garlic

A bouquette of garlic can be a bit smelly, but it a great gift, that will leave you with an incredible amount of health benefits. Whole books have been written about the health benefits of garlic, and how its great for the heart, is an excellent anti-viral, helps prevent cancer and aids the metabolism. It is also a great defender from diseases that are caused by over oxidation in the body.
