Watercress and why is it important to eat it?

Although it is one of the most common leafy green vegetables in the world, it’s not widely consumed in many parts of the world. So, why is watercress so popular? Read on to find out more about watercress and its health benefits.

Watercress is a semi aquatic plant that grows naturally in the spring and in shallow waters. It has glossy, small round green leaves that have circular edges. Light green hollow stems attached to the clusters of leaves. The leaves have a pungent, peppery flavor. The scent is fresh and leafy, almost arugula-like. Watercress flowers are not eaten.

Water isn’t the only source of hydration. Eating vegetables like watercress can also help you stay hydrated. Watercress is a leafy green that’s made up almost entirely of water — 95% of it. Drinking plenty of fluids, especially water, is important for your body’s functions. It helps your body move nutrients and waste around, keep your blood pressure in check, regulate your body temperature, prevent dehydration, and more.
