Watercress Powder 
 Nature's Super Green Powder

Watercress has been used for its health benefits for thousands of years. Nearly 2500 years ago, the Greek physician Hippocrates  – considered to be one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine – built his hospital by a fast-flowing stream so he could grow watercress to help care for his patients.

Watercress is an aquatic plant and is considered one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables on the planet per calorie, a fact which is backed by science. A study conducted by the CDC (Centre for Disease Control and Prevention) evaluated 47 powerhouse fruits and vegetables, ranking them based on their overall nutrient density and nutrient diversity. Watercress came out number one. 

We term Cress Valley Watercress Powder "Nature's Multivitamin" because of its nutrient density and nutrient diversity.

Watercress is packed full of powerful antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that help support a clean healthy body. One particularly  beneficial compound found in watercress is phenylethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), an immensely powerful antioxidant. PEITC reduces oxidative stress by scavenging free radicals on a cellular level.

Plants thrive on natural fertilisers like blood and bone and seaweed much more than they do on artificial fertilisers. This is because the natural fertilisers are balanced with all essential nutrients required for optimum plant growth.

 

Humans, just like plants, also thrive much better on real fruit and vegetables compared to artificial multivitamins. This is why Cress Valley Watercress Powder is an exceptional supplement. It is nutrient dense and balanced by nature for optimum absorption.

Cress Valley Watercress Powder uses watercress that has been commercially grown in fresh New Zealand spring water. Watercress grows seasonally so we harvest the crop and then process and dry the product to create a highly nutrient-dense powder that can be taken as a supplement all year round. 

 

The drying process is carried out under specific conditions that retain vital nutrients whilst ensuring the product is microbiologically safe. It is a fine science. Each batch is microbiologically tested (AOAC-PTM/Microval), before being released for consumption to ensure product quality every time.
