Different extracts of watercress roots, stem and leaves were analysed for pigment composition, total phenolic contents, and radical scavenging activity.
Results showed that total phenolic compounds in all samples were higher in the methanolic extracts than its corresponding aqueous extracts.
The RSA of methanolic extracts was higher than aqueous extracts. Fourteen phenolic compounds were identified in the leaves, where coumaric acid and its derivatives, caftaric acid and quercetin derivatives were present in higher amounts.
In roots, a total of 20 compounds was tentatively identified, with coumaric acid and its derivatives, sinapic acid, caftaric acid and quercetin derivatives were the major phenolic compounds. In conclusion, watercress has significant antioxidant activity and contains important phenolic compounds, which could be of potential biological interest.
It is a leafy vegetable found in and around water. The taste of the leaves is like strong pepper, which leads to its commercial use in salads. It is generally found in bunches in cold, mildly flowing, and low stream.
It naturally grows in brooks, ditches and pond margins.
The plant is cultivated in lakes, ponds and in slow-moving water in rivers, canals and streams. It is a significant part of water ecosystems. It provides good habitation for many aquatic organisms and protection for young fish and amphibians Rose et al. The presence of different phytochemicals and nutritional benefits of watercress make it a healthy diet that maintains the immunity and health of the body.
As a salad vegetable, Watercress provides sufficient nutrients. Pigments such as carotenoids and chlorophyll have significant potential of antioxidant activity.
The therapeutic capability of carotenoids includes cancer inhibition Seifried et al. Watercress is considered as an important source of carotenoids, which are consumed in diets Hart and Scott Watercress supplementation in diet has shown to ameliorate the DNA damage and increased the blood antioxidant potential in human subjects Gill et al.
The increase in the blood antioxidant potential may be due to the presence of glucosinolate contents in the blood Dyba et al. Watercress consumption has strong potential to act as a source of anti-cancer drug Hecht et al. Watercress was found to contain several phenolic compounds that contributed to the anti-cancer potential Ozen Similarly, Aires et al.

Abstract. This study was undertaken to evaluate genotoxic potential of Thermopsis turcica aqueous extracts on the roots of onion bulb (Allium cepa L.) by comet assay and random amplified polymorphic DNA technique. The Allium root growth inhibition test indicated that the EC 50 and 2×EC 50 values were 8 and 16 mg/ml concentrations of .
