Rich in amino acids, Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, and with calcium, manganese, beta-carotene, folic acid and phosphorous too, watercress packs a punch well above its size.With one small serving containing three times the RDA of vitamin K, it's no wonder watercress is hailed by many as a miracle cure for Alzheimer's disease. The positive overload of vitamin K promotes healthy bones, and it staves osteoporosis.

A rich source of: vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A.
