      <ArticleTitle>A review to investigate the nutrient profile of the nutrient-dense seed Lepidium sativum L.</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Lepidium sativum is an annual, underutilised herb that belongs to the Brassicaceae family and has similar basic properties to mustard and water cress. Garden cress thrives throughout the Middle East, Europe, and the United States. Garden cress seeds are known throughout history for their medicinal properties and are cultivated for a variety of culinary purposes. Seeds have been used to treat many disorders such as asthma, uterine tumours, ulcers, hemorrhoidal bleeding, coughing, wounds, dermatomycosis, dysmenorrhea, sciatica, and nasal polyps because of their nutritional and antioxidant activity. Besides showing strong medicinal properties, garden cress seeds have a rich proximate profile. Seeds are a good source of energy, protein, ash, fat, and fibre compared to the common staple cereals and millets. This plant's parts are consumed as green leaves and seeds in many forms, especially as salad, sprouts, and spicy spices. The seeds taste bitter, and to improve taste and quality, seeds in India are consumed raw or processed (soaked, boiled, and roasted). Malnutrition is currently a major concern in all aspects of society, and because these seeds are a very high source of protein and energy, they can be utilised to increase macronutrient consumption. The goal of this review is to promote daily seed consumption and community health by consolidating scientific understanding of the nutritional composition of L. sativum.</Abstract>
