Effects potential anti-cancer
A study funded by the rural industries Research and Development Corporation of Australia (RIRDC) has assessed the potential anti-cancer of a certain number of Brassica vegetables, including garden Cress. For each tested vegetable, anti-cancer score was calculated on the basis of the vegetable glucosinolates content. Bien glucosinolates themselves have limited biological activity, of their metabolites - isothiocyanates in particular - seem to have potential for fighting cancer because of their ability to promote the elimination of the carcinogenic potential of the body. <span title="However, many Brassica species, including garden cress, contain protein epithiospecifier (ESP), a compound that promotes the conversion of glucosinolates into nitriles (which have no. anti-cancer properties) rather than isothiocyanates." "="">However, manyBrassica species, including garden Cress, contain epithiospecifier proteins (ESP), a compound that promotes the conversion of glucosinolates in nitrile (which have anti-cancer properties) rather than isothiocyanates.
However, despite containing ESP, Garden cress was still significant anti-cancer potential compared to many other vegetables tested. Even when the potential effects of ESP were taken into account, Garden Cress seemed to always have as much or more potential anti-cancer as radishes, turnips, cabbage, kohlrabi, Chinese broccoli, mizuna, komatsuna and caisin. < /span >

Glucotropaeoline, one of major glucosinolates found in Garden Cress, is a pre-cursor of benzyl isothiocyanate (BIT), a compound that can help combat tooth decay. A study published in Microbios Letters in 1988 revealed that BIT inhibited the production of Streptococcus mutans growth and acid, a bacterium that hasbeen linked to the development of caries dental. < SPyear >
