Day 23: Watercress
After looking in to the health benefits of watercress, I’m wondering why I haven’t been eating it all along, or why I had no idea just how healthy it is…it’s actually ranked as the number one most nutritious vegetable! It’s so healing, Hypocrites himself made sure it was readily available to treat his patients! Study after study show the healing affects of this powerful plant and it’s amazing ability in disease prevention and beauty.
Here are a few more health benefits:
- Watercress is packed with more than 15 essential vitamins and minerals. More vitamin C than oranges, more iron than spinach, more calcium than milk.
- Powerful for #thyroid function because of it’s iodine content. It’s also used to treat/prevent Alzheimer’s.
- It’s loaded with vitamin K and anti-oxidants and is known to purify the blood, reduce the damage done by free radicals, improve skin appearance and limit neurological damage to the brain.
All that info made me hungry for a watercress & romaine salad…
