Watercress

Despite its humble appearance, watercress is a leafy green powerhouse of nutrients. It’s packed with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as several B vitamins. Watercress also contains iron, calcium, and magnesium, which are essential for energy production. Additionally, it’s rich in phytonutrients like sulforaphane, which can help combat fatigue and improve overall vitality.

The significant amount of vitamin K in watercress plays a crucial role in bone metabolism and calcium absorption. Adequate vitamin K intake may help reduce the risk of osteoporosis and improve bone density.

It contains high levels of iodine which is beneficial for both the thyroid and immune system. Watercress also has antibiotic properties similar to those in the onion family which also gives it a spicy flavor and kick.
