Science and medical research have shown time and time again that a regular intake of cold-pressed Mustard Oil keeps many of your internal organs healthy and functioning at optimal levels. It also prevents and fights infections in these organs.
Mustard Oil is proven to possess powerful antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that enable organs to fight a wide range of infections and diseases – such organs include the heart (in fact, the entire cardiovascular system), gastrointestinal tract, spleen and liver. In today’s post, we will discuss the health benefits that Mustard Oil has to offer for your kidneys.
Eminent Nephrologist Dr Ashok Sarin, a specialist in the treatment of kidney diseases, recommends the consumption of cold-pressed Mustard Oil in conjunction with a low-salt, low-sugar diet to keep the kidneys functioning efficiently. Dr Sarin points out that for healthy kidneys it is important to avoid Saturated Fatty Acids (SFA). Incidentally, cold-pressed Mustard Oil has the lowest levels of saturated fats in comparison with other cooking oils.
Another set of nutrients that is beneficial for the kidneys is the ideal combination of Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFA) and Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA). Mustard Oil is rich in both MUFA and PUFA. It also controls bad cholesterol (LDL) and enhances the levels of good cholesterol (HDL), thereby balancing Triglyceride levels. These actions have a favourable effect on the functioning of the kidneys and are known to prevent kidney disease in many cases.
The preventive attributes of Mustard Oil vis-à-vis kidney disease have also been reiterated in a study conducted by researchers at the Bangladesh Agricultural University. This animal study found that subjects administered with a diet rich in Mustard Oil showed less histopathological lesions in their kidneys.
Your kidneys are invaluable organs that play a vital role in removing waste and toxins from the body and in balancing body fluids. Take good care of them – with a little help from cold-pressed Mustard Oil.
