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.
