What is Cress Used For? Health Benefits and Side Effects of Cress in Food

Cress regulates metabolism and activity and helps to keep the stomach and gall bladder healthy. It also has a curative effect in joint disorders and gout. Health benefits include a high concentration of iron, calcium, vitamin A, C and E. Iron helps to maintain red blood cell level in the body, thus protecting it from anemia. Calcium keeps the bones and teeth strong, while vitamin A is very good for the eyes. Vitamin E is a very good anti-oxidant and protects against cell disruption in the body. Anti-oxidants act as a protective shell for the body against many diseases. It also purifies blood and boosts the appetite. It can be eaten fresh, as a garnish and can be added to egg dishes and sandwiches. If Cress is consumed in excess then it can cause digestive difficulties in those sensitive to it.
