Scientists have discovered that mustard is effective against many ailments. The spice has a beneficial effect on the entire cardiovascular system.
Due to its high concentration of anti-inflammatory compounds, mustard seed oil extract reduces the risk of arrhythmias and heart attack. Mustard leaves contain glucosinolates that can reduce the amount of “bad” cholesterol in the blood and support overall heart health.
Mustard got its superfood status thanks to its antioxidants. Plant compounds protect body cells from DNA damage and inhibit the growth of cancer cells, food.news writes.
The spice also normalizes blood sugar regulation mechanisms and suppresses post-meal spikes in blood sugar, the researchers note.
