Watercress is a water-loving perennial in the Brassicaceae family, which includes radish, and mustard. Like its botanical relatives, watercress has a pepper-like and mildly spicy aroma and flavor.

Because watercress is also abundant in vitamins A and C, folic acid, calcium and iron, the powdered herb is typically encapsulated as a dietary supplement. As with all supplements, check with your physician if you take pharmaceutical medications before using this herb because watercress is known to interfere with medicines metabolized in the liver by CYP 450 enzymes.

Watercress is a small, semi-aquatic plant that occurs naturally along streams and in other moist areas of Europe and Asia. It is also cultivated elsewhere. In the US, for instance, it is commercially grow in Huntsville, Alabama, which is affectionately credited as being “the watercress capital of the world.”

The powdered herb has all the pungency of its relatives in the mustard family due to the presence of the enzyme myrosin. Watercress is also a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and C, potassium and iron.
