Today I want to cover the amazing benefits of watercress. Watercress is a fascinating plant that has nutrients, phytonutrients, and other benefits. You may want to consider adding watercress to your daily salad.

 

Benefits of watercress:

1. It has phytonutrients like isothiocyanate and sulforaphane, which are anticancer. These phytonutrients combined with the vitamin C in the plant can support your collagen and elastin.

2. It has zeaxanthin and lutein, which may help filter blue light and decrease the risk of age-related macular degeneration.

3. It’s extremely nutrient-dense. It has high amounts of vitamin K1, calcium, manganese, vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta carotene.

4. It has naturally occurring nitrates, which are good for the inside of the arteries. These nitrates may help make the arteries less stiff and help keep a person's blood pressure from going too high. They may also help with exercise performance.
