Lipid Lowering Capabilities of Mustard Oil

It is really gratifying to see the entire world getting involved in research on various health benefits and attributes of cold-pressed Mustard Oil. Leading institutions in India, the USA and various other countries have already produced landmark medical and scientific research reports on this subject. Even a country like Iraq has been studying the benefits of Mustard Oil. A study by the University of Thi-Qar, Iraq, conducted under the aegis of the General Directorate for Education, Thi-Qar, indicated that Indian Mustard Oil (Brassica nigra L.) has powerful Hypolipidemic properties.

Usually, Hypolipidemic agents come in the form of pharmaceuticals that are used in the treatment of Hyperlipidaemia, which means high levels of lipids (fats) in the blood. The function of a Hypolipidemic agent is to lower the level of lipids and lipoproteins in the blood. Typically, the aim is to reduce Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), commonly referred to as “Bad Cholesterol”.

The study mentioned above found that instead of medicines, the regular use of cold-pressed Mustard Oil could induce the same Hypolipidemic action, rectifying the lipid profile, reducing body weight and improving the atherogenic index – a critical index used for cardiac risk estimation.

For consumers of cold-pressed Mustard Oil, this represents a very important health benefit. Without the use of medicines and by relying only on dietary choices and Mustard Oil, one can derive significant benefits in reducing bad cholesterol and preventing heart disease, hypertension, stroke and atherosclerosis.

In these times when lifestyle problems like elevated cholesterol and triglycerides are widespread, and coronary vascular disease and hypertension are silent killers lurking everywhere, your choice of cold-pressed Mustard Oil could do wonders for your heart, blood circulation and the entire cardiovascular system.
