Watercress is one of GAYOT's Top 10 Superfoods

Skip Scurvy, Eat More Watercress!

In some regions of the world, watercress is regarded as a weed, in others as an aquatic vegetable or herb. Boasting so many health benefits, watercress is definitely not a weed! Most potent when consumed fresh and raw, this leafy perennial helps combat a variety of cancers and has long been used to treat scurvy. Due to its high iodine content, watercress has a strengthening effect on the thyroid gland, which makes it beneficial for sufferers of hypothyroidism.
