From Our Farmacy - The Garden Cress Kit - a great source of Vitamins C & K, Carotenoids + Cancer Fighters. In India and Europe, the medicinal properties of garden cress (Lepidium sativum) have been recognized for centuries. This culinary and healing herb has a tangy, peppery taste similar to leaf mustard and watercress. Its distinctive flavor and high nutritional value makes garden cress a tasty and healthy addition to salads, smoothies, omelettes, sandwiches and more.
Garden cress has been studied extensively, and extracts are showing effectiveness on breast cancer cells in laboratory testing. Being part of the brassica family, it is a natural source of anti cancer compounds. Garden cress also contains carotenoids to help with eye health. It even has more vitamin C than oranges per weight. Just a small helping contains almost 100% of your daily requirement for vitamin K, which is necessary for blood & cardiovascular health.
