< Back to MAIN MEALS page

WATERCRESS has a peppery taste, which is caused by benzyl mustard oil, a powerful antibiotic beneficial to the colon and intestines. It purifies the blood and helps expel the toxins in the body. It is surprisingly rich in calcium, iron and beta-carotene; all required for overall good health.
