Iron that comes from animal products is not good for humans because it gets stored by the body as ''iron reserves," but the human body cannot use that kind of iron properly, and it has been linked to diabetes, heart disease and other health problems (especially heme iron that's found in red meat).
Watercress is a rich source of vitamin A & has lots of vitamin K, antioxidants & protective phytochemicals. Provides 4X the calcium of 2% milk. Oz. for Oz., it offers as much vitamin C as an orange & more iron than spinach. The nutrients in watercress protect against cancer & help build the immune system. The phytochemicals battle cancer in 3 ways: killing cancer cells, blocking carcinogens, & protecting healthy cells. They've also been shown to help prevent lung & esophageal cancer. #dherbs
