The world continues to sit up and take notice of cold-pressed Mustard Oil and the mind-boggling array of health benefits that this wonder oil offers. In America, the Harvard School of Public Health and the American Heart Association have already acknowledged the value of Mustard Oil in reducing the risks associated with heart disease and hypertension. The National Cholesterol Education Programme (NCEP) also hops on this bandwagon, pointing out that Mustard Oil can go a long way in fighting the battle against Cholesterol.
The NCEP was initiated to reduce the spiralling rate of cardiovascular disease in the United States of America – in particular, heart disease arising from elevated cholesterol levels. The Programme recommends the use of cooking oils that have low levels of saturated fats, high levels of monounsaturated fats and a healthy ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3.
Mustard Oil in its cold-pressed meets all the NCEP parameters. Mustard Oil has the lowest levels of Saturated Fatty Acids among all edible oils. It is high in Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFA) and Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA). And it has an ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 – it is, in fact, closest to the ratio recommended by the World Health Organization.
As part of your daily diet, Mustard Oil can play a vital role in the battle against high cholesterol. Mustard Oil has the innate power to enhance good cholesterol (HDL) and control the build-up of bad cholesterol (LDL). In the process, it balances your Triglyceride levels.
So win the battle against Cholesterol – with Mustard Oil as your primary weapon.
