Watercress arrests cancer growth as effectively as—if not better than—conventional cancer treatments… without all the side effects.

In September of last year, scientists from the Cancer Research Centre at Southampton General Hospital’s School of Medicine in the U.K. unveiled astounding findings about watercress.

Hemp protein, on the other hand, contains the highest amount of edestin, a plant protein that is constructed entirely of amino acids and can be used by the body to build important antibodies, enzymes, hormones, hemoglobin cells and blood-clotting agents.

Hemp protein also contains Continue reading
