Vinod Gupta, a senior Vice President at a well-known multinational corporation starts his day with a frugal fruit salad. His main meals are largely boiled, steamed or stewed. Each meal is followed by a significant amount of medication.
There was a time, three or four years ago, when Gupta was an avid foodie. He was the go-to for the best street food and restaurants in town. Whether he was in Delhi, Bombay or Amritsar, Gupta knew all the places to explore for great, mouth-watering food. But today, he no longer enjoys his food and feels stifled by all the dietary restrictions he has to adhere to. His problem: high cholesterol.
A year ago, Gupta’s triglycerides went through the roof because of bad eating habits and a stress-filled lifestyle… quite a common story these days. His days of being a foodie seemed to be over.
However, there is an ancient remedy for these New Age maladies – Mustard Oil.
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates that Mustard Oil in its natural cold-pressed form helps in lowering bad cholesterol (LDL) and simultaneously, raising good cholesterol (HDL). This rectification and restoration of the cholesterol balance lowers triglyceride levels – significantly reducing the risks of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity, kidney disease and hyperthyroidism.
Fortunately, Gupta eventually went to a cardiologist who fixed his lifestyle issues and switched him to a diet of vegetarian food cooked in Mustard Oil.
Gupta says: “Thanks to my doc, I’m back to being a foodie – but this time around I’m a healthy foodie. Mustard Oil made this possible.”
And that’s another story with a happy ending – thanks to Mustard Oil!
