It also contains volatile oils, mainly the mustard oil that has antibacterial activity. Horse radish is an effective diuretic which helps in cleaning the urinary tract infections and bladder. According to WebMD, Horseradish is useful in treating urinary tract infections, kidney stones, fluid retention and gallbladder disorders. And according to an article published in Digital Journal, radish juice helps in breaking up the kidney stones, especially the calcium oxalate ones, and also prevents its formation because it is rich in potassium that helps in reducing the urinary excretion of calcium. This is well supported by a scientific study published in PubMed, which revealed that diet rich in radish has increased the excretion of urinary calcium oxalate - the common source of kidney stone formation.
