Do you immediately think that Mustard is bad for you, just because you see it on a HOT-DOG?! Let’s take a look at the science:⁣⁣
Addition of an active source of myrosinase, such as from mustard seeds, to cooked Brassica vegetables - like Broccoli, cauliflower, Kale etc - can increase the bioavailability of beneficial isothiocyanates such as sulforaphane, which is well established to be beneficial to human heath (Okunade et al., 2018).⁣⁣
Mustard seeds small amounts of calcium, copper, iron, selenium and zinc. In addition, Mustard seeds contain a large amount of manganese which is used by the body as a co-factor for a powerful antioxidant enzyme SOD - which is known as the Guardian of the Powerhouse! (Rahman et al., 2018). ⁣⁣
Manganese is often deficient in people who are exposed to large amounts of GLYPHOSATE/Round-Up.⁣⁣
As for their medicinal purposes, mustard seeds were used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine because of their potential to support the bronchial system, eliminate intestinal parasites, and ease sprains and other pains. Physicians in ancient Greek and Roman civilizations also used this as a form of medicine. ⁣⁣

Mustard is healthy when it’s organic, and has no added ingredients such as cream, canola oil, sugar or thickeners. It may be extra beneficial to consume your mustard with veggies! ⁣⁣
