A study on the medicinal qualities of Mustard Oil published in the Asian Journal of Dairy and Food Research describes the powerful therapeutic properties of cold-pressed Mustard Oil.
For starters, the chemistry and composition of this oil is closely aligned with the health and nutritional requirements of the human body. Its Saturated Fatty Acids (SFA) content is 3 per cent (nutritionists say it should be anywhere below 7 per cent); this makes it one of the healthiest cooking oils. SFA is a bad fat that causes a build-up of bad cholesterol (LDL), clogs your arteries, causes plaque formation on the inner walls of blood vessels and increases the risks associated with heart disease, stroke and hypertension. Among the standard cooking oils currently available in the market, cold-pressed Mustard Oil is the one with the lowest SFA levels.
Mustard Oil also has among the highest levels of Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFA) – 68 per cent. MUFA is good for your heart and is also known to improve insulin levels and helps keep blood sugar under control. MUFA also has strong anti-inflammatory properties that help the body fight inflammation, pain and inflammatory diseases (like COVID-19).
Cold-pressed Mustard Oil also contains two vital nutrients: Linoleic Acid and Linolenic Acid. Both these are proven to keep your blood pressure healthy, reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and prevent atherosclerosis. In the process, they end up playing a vital role in cardiac and vascular health.
The ideal composition of cold-pressed Mustard Oil also includes an ideal ratio of Omega-6 Fatty Acids to Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and Vitamin E both of which go a long way in strengthening our immune system.
So add some healthy Mustard Oil Therapy to your life – make cold-pressed Mustard Oil your preferred cooking oil.
