In simple, rather blunt terms, oil is fat… it goes inside your body and acts like fat. If it is a “good fat” (like PUFA, MUFA and Omega-3) it gives you energy to use for physical work and other activities. If it is a “bad fat” (like saturated fats and trans-fats) it causes health problems.
Mustard Oil is much more than just fat. By the way, it’s packed with good fats and also has the lowest levels of saturated fats among all other cooking oils. But forget about fats – because Mustard Oil works inside your body at a different level altogether. Like we said, it’s much more than just fat.
Cleansing and Detoxifying: For starters, Mustard Oil is known to cleanse and detoxify the body by aiding the process through which toxins are flushed out of the body.
Cholesterol Balancing: Mustard Oil promotes good cholesterol (HDL) and controls bad cholesterol (LDL); in the process it balances your Triglycerides and prevents a host of lifestyle problems that arise from elevated Triglyceride levels.
Infection Fighting: Mustard Oil has powerful antifungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties unlike any other cooking oil. This gives it the power to fight infections in various organs of the body.
Digestive System Toning: Mustard Oil maintains and tones up the digestive system in several ways: it stimulates the production of gastric juices and the production of bile, thereby enhancing the appetite and making the digestive process more efficient. Mustard Oil also prevents infections in the digestive tract and keeps irritable gut syndrome at bay.
Cardiovascular System Strengthening: Mustard Oil strengthens the entire cardiovascular system: the blood, the blood vessels and the heart.
As you can see… Mustard Oil isn’t just a cooking oil – it is a warrior inside your body!
