Infections caused by bacteria and viruses can lead to mucus buildup in the lungs. This can obstruct airways and make breathing difficult. Daikon radish has anti-bacterial and anti-viral qualities that can combat these infections, making the root veggie a great addition to the diet during cold and flu season. Also, daikon has enzymes that act as a decongestant, helping dissolve mucus and remove it from the body to improve breathing. This can benefit people with asthma and other respiratory issues.
