The active principle of horseradish.
Its volatile oil. Is identical with Its
near relative, mustard. Horseradish
while popularly considered merely a
condiment, is used medicinally. It Is
so beneficial and stimulating to the
digestive organs that It Is often pre

when general run-down condition
prevails. It is considered an excellent

meats, pickles and the ginger root In
preserves, sweetmeats, cakes and for
medicinal uses.
