Good nutrition isn’t only about what you eat – it also stems from the nutrients contained in the food you are consuming as part of your daily diet. A significant part of your daily fat intake should come from healthy fats – good fats like Monounsaturated Fatty Acids, Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. This last one is a vital nutrient that must be obtained via the food we eat – the body cannot manufacture or synthesize Omega-3 fats.
Mustard Oil is one of the richest vegetable sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids. This nutrient is known to prevent heart disease and hypertension, and also lower bad cholesterol (LDL), boost good cholesterol (HDL) and rectify the body’s triglyceride balance.
Speaking at a webinar organized by the Hindustan Times media group, well-known Nutritionist Kavita Devgan pointed out another very important attribute of Mustard Oil: the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids. Most of the food we eat does not offer a suitable ratio of these two nutrients. The imbalance can be corrected by maintaining a proper intake of Mustard Oil which has an ideal Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio… a near perfect ratio. It is for this reason that many nutritionists and cardiologists call Mustard Oil a “perfect oil”.
So you don’t have to go hunting in the hidden corners of the world of Nutrition to find this elusive nutrient called Omega-3. Just reach for a bottle of cold-pressed Mustard Oil. It’s packed with Omega-3… and a wide array of health benefits!
