Grown in mineral rich spring water
Watercress is truly incredible! Studies have proven it prevents DNA damage, activates defences against pathogens, detoxifies our body and even improves our lymphatic system. The key plant components that offer this array of benefits are PEITC & Sulforaphane which are only found in watercress or cruciferous plants.
A Journey from the farm to to your fridge
Unlike other cruciferous vegetables such as kale or broccoli which generally require steaming or boiling, watercress does not need to be cooked which ensures it retains all its nutritional benefits. Some of the goodness is activated by enzymes and when you steam or cook any of these vegetables, the enzymes are damaged resulting in fewer nutritional benefits.
Grown in harmony with the environment
Watercress contains an impressive number of vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients to deliver a powerful body boost. Rich in vitamin A and vitamin C, watercress is a good source of folate, calcium, iron and vitamin E. It also contains useful amounts of vitamin K, thiamin, vitamin B6, potassium and iodine and is naturally low in sodium. Harmful free radicals in the body can be increased by infection, pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol and ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure. Antioxidants found in watercress help to protect cells by “mopping up” free radicals before they cause cell and tissue damage.
