what the health benefits of eating the mizuna and does it retain nutrients in the soil or help the soil in any how??

Mizuna is high in vitamin C, folate and iron and contains a good supply of anti-oxidants. I don't know of any benefits to the soil other than help break up soil, which all plants do, and adding bulk by digging in the trash.
