secret to heart health

Olive oil enjoys a coveted position in our kitchens and in the media and today it has become integral to the fit lifestyle. This highly popularized oil has reached this position by beating out all of its competition, or has it?

 

benefits of anveshan mustard oil

The western oil has been preached about for far too long. Here in this narrative, mustard oil is the unsung hero. Mustard oil is a perfect blend of natural antioxidants and essential fatty acids.  These are necessary for the body and help in preventing cardiovascular diseases. It is rich in healthy[1] monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which are good for the body and helps in the reduction of bad cholesterol and promotes good cholesterol. The presence of omega-3[2] fatty acids in Mustard Oil helps[3] in the reduction of blood fat levels.

Research has found mustard oil to be a healthier option than Olive oil. While being really good for you it has the ideal ratio of fatty acids. Mustard oil is known for being anti-bacterial[4] and anti-inflammatory[5]. It is found that mustard oil can help in keeping the blood pressure under control, reducing the risk of coronary artery diseases and hypertension. Mustard oil is also better suited for Indian cuisine as mustard oil has a high smoke point and can be used for frying while olive oil has a low smoke point. Mustard oil has high levels of Vitamin E, iron, calcium and magnesium which make it ideal for hair care. A bottle of olive oil can cost more than a thousand rupees, while fine quality mustard oil can be bought at a price as low as two hundred rupees. Clearly Mustard Oil is a way better deal and let's be honest, who would want decadence at relatively no personal or monetary cost?
