4 reasons to eat watercress:
1. It is packed with antioxidants that may help lower your risk of cancer and heart disease.
2. It is nutrient dense and low in calories; therefore, it helps with weight reduction.
3. One cup contains more than 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin K.
4. Watercress is a rich source of Vitamin C, which can boost your immune system.
You can easily incorporate watercress into your diet (if you are not already) simply by swapping the lettuce for watercress, the next time you make a salad!
