What is dye sublimation and why polyester?
Dye-sublimation works by penetrating the surface of the material with ink. Man-made materials such as nylon and polyester fabrics contain polymers that when heated, enable the bonding of ink. Cotton and other natural fibers do not.
Dye-sublimation printing yields beautiful and permanent colors that are embedded in the substrate or fabric, rather than printed on the surface.
Images on fabric won’t fade or crack even after multiple washings.
Spanish Black Radish
Use of black spanish radish as remedy to many illnesses is in practice since ancient times. A popular Chinese proverb says "when winter radishes are in season, doctors should take a break".
Chinese believe that eating radish and other brassica group vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower, and napa cabbage would bring wholesome health.
Black radish has the same calorie value as other conventional radishes. It holds just 16 calories per 100 grams. Nevertheless, it is powerhouse of antioxidants, vitamins and fiber.
Black radishes carry higher concentrations of glucosinolates compounds than its white variants. Glucoraphanin is the predominant glucosinolate found in almost all parts of the radish plant.
Glucoraphanin is converted into sulforaphane by hydrolysis enzymatic reaction which characteristically gives punchingly pungent flavor to it.
Research studies suggest that glucosinalates in the Brassica family vegetables offer anti-viral, immune-boosting, anti-cancer properties.
Fresh black radish roots are an average sources of vitamin-C (15 mg or 25% of DA per 100 g). Vitamin-C is a powerful water-soluble antioxidant required by the body for synthesis of collagen. It boost immunity, and helps in scavenging inflammatory free-radicals.
In the traditional medicines, the extraction of black radishes is used to treat liver and biliary disorders like indigestion, dyspepsia, gallbladder stones and to cure respiratory ailments, rheumatism, and arthritis.
Further, black radishes contain modest levels of B-complex group of vitamins such as folates, vitamin B-6, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper and calcium.
Radish, being a member of cruciferous vegetables, carry other phytonutrients such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) which are detoxifying agents. Experimental studies suggested that anti-estrogenic activities of I3C and DIM (di-indole methane) might help reduce the risk of hormone-dependent cancers such as breast and endometrium.
