With heart disease, hypertension and stroke emerging as major health problems across the world, people are increasingly focussing on one word: Cholesterol. High-cholesterol foods and diets are being shunned and many people are resorting to medication to control their blood cholesterol levels.
Many people don’t know that one of the best natural cholesterol-fighters is sitting quietly in their kitchens. It’s Mustard Oil – that humble, low-profile, old-world cooking medium whose enormous health benefits tend to go unrecognized ever so often. Mustard Oil is scientifically proven to mount a two pronged attack on cholesterol. The regular use of mustard oil for cooking boosts good cholesterol (HDL) and at the same time, it prevents the rise of bad cholesterol (LDL). In the process, mustard oil restores the body’s Triglyceride balance and builds a healthy lipid profile.
This vital role played by Mustard Oil in fighting cholesterol has been recognized by the American Heart Association and the Harvard School of Public Health on the basis of various scientific studies. The National Cholesterol Education Programme (NCEP) also credits Mustard and Mustard Oil with being a powerful weapon in the battle against cholesterol.
The NCEP was designed to tackle the menace of cardiovascular disease being faced all across the United States of America. One of the key recommendations of this Programme is to use cooking oils that have low levels of Saturated Fats, high levels of Monounsaturated Fats, and a healthy ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3. Natural cold-pressed Mustard Oil meets – and actually exceeds – the NCEP parameters.
The champion fighter against Cholesterol has been around for thousands of years. Add Mustard Oil to your arsenal – and win the battle against Cholesterol… decisively.
