Watercress (Nasturtium amphibium)


This comes under cabage family (Brassicacae).
This humble herb should be added generously to the salad plate.
Watercress is full of vitamins and minerals.
Old herbals consider it as a blood cleanser. This is due to its diuretic action and beneficial effect on the digestive system, gallbladder and liver.
Externally it can be applied to badly healing ulcers and wounds.
Use with care during pregnancy.
Excessive use can irritate the kidneys.
