Vitamins: A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, C, E, K. Minerals: iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, sodium, copper, iodine, selenium, fluoride, phosphorus, zinc. Compounds: the amino acids proline, tryptophan, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenyl- alanine, cystine, valine, arginine, histidine, tyrosine, alanine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, glycine and serine; chlorophyll. Properties: anticancer, diuretic, antioxidant, expectorant. The compounds found in watercress are known chemopreventive agents for many forms of breast cancer!!!! Watercress is in the Brassicaceae family of vegetables, along with cabbage, collard, and broccoli -- all of which have profound anticancer properties. Watercress can be harvested wild, and is one of the oldest known leafy greens consumed by humans. Eat it up!!

Spirulina is a blue green microalgae, and one of the oldest living life forms on earth. It’s believed that blue-green algae (like spirulina) is res- ponisble in part for producing the world’s oxygen supply, which set the stage for the evolution of other life forms by both creating the worlds habitat, and forming the base of the food chain. Spirulina is a low calorie, high protein, vita-mineral rich food that packs a helluva lot of bang for its buck. It is also one of the richest sources of chlorophyll in nature. Blue green algae has been a staple in the diets of many, many, many creatures large and small (including humans) since life on earth began billions of years ago.
