Garden Cress Contains Important Molecules
Dr. Tushar Ray conducted research critical to the formulation of NaturCress supplements for heartburn relief. He found that metabolites from glucosinolates, or mustard oil glycosides, play a role in the healthy regulation of gastric juices. A special enzyme in the Garden Cress seed breaks these molecules down into mustard oil and glucose. Mustard oil, in turn, supports healthy levels of stomach acid, preventing heartburn from overeating.
In addition to their ability to provide quick relief, these mustard oils have long term benefits because they contribute to stable cell maintenance. This is why Garden Cress seed provides both short- and long-term benefits for the body.
