Science tells us that one of the most valuable nutrients in cold-pressed Mustard Oil is Omega-3. This is a vital fatty acid that your body cannot produce on its own – it has to be obtained externally, either from dietary sources or in the form of medical supplements (Omega-3 capsules). Cold-pressed Mustard Oil is one of the largest plant-based (vegetarian) sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids – which means you can get large amounts of this healthy nutrient by using Mustard Oil as your primary cooking medium.
The health benefits offered by Omega-3 are significant. It reduces the risks associated with heart disease; it keeps your arteries healthy and prevents atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries and the build-up of plaque); it prevents harmful blood clots; it increases good cholesterol (HDL) and decreases bad cholesterol (LDL), thus rectifying the body’s triglyceride balance; and it reduces blood pressure, thereby helping you to stay away from the dreaded “Silent Killer” called hypertension.
A new study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals some really interesting facts about Omega-3. According to this study, higher levels of Omega-3 in the blood, particularly in the red blood cells known as blood erythrocytes, could increase life expectancy by around five years. A mere 1 per cent increase in Omega-3 in the blood results in a significant change in the risk of mortality that is the equivalent for giving up smoking. This is an amazing finding! It means that a steady intake of Omega-3 Fatty Acids can improve your longevity.
So all you health conscious people out there… you now have yet another strong reason for switching to cold-pressed Mustard Oil – a longer, healthier life.
