Lepidium sativum plant and seeds are considered one of the popular medicinal herbs used in the community of Saudi Arabia, Sudan and some other Arabic countries as a good mediator for bone fracture healing in the human skeleton. A number of recent studies pointed out the traditional uses of Lepidium sativum seeds extract in controlling many clinical problems. They were used as anti-asthmatic antiscorbutic, aperient, diuretic, galactogogue, poultice and stimulant. The traditional plants may represent new sources of drugs with stable, biologically active components that can establish a scientific base for the use of plants in modern medicine. These local ethnomedical preparations and prescriptions of plant sources should be scientifically evaluated and then disseminated properly. Key Words: Seeds, garden cress, hydroponic, phytochemicals, nutritional.
