Black mustard oil comes from a plant and has many medicinal qualities. While there is no scientific evidence to prove the exact use of mustard oil, it is believed to be beneficial in more ways than one. Commonly known as sarson ka tel, this oil is found in multiple households across India. It is the perfect base for making some of the most delicious dishes such as sarson ka saag, macher jhol and is added in almost every pickle. 

Apart from its pungent taste and distinct aroma, it has chemicals that can alleviate pain, cure colds, and are good for rheumatism.

  1. May hamper microbial growth 

A few studies have shown that this oil enjoys strong antimicrobial properties and could prevent the growth of certain dangerous bacteria.

  1.    It is good to improve the health of your heart 

A couple of studies prove that including this oil in your daily diet can help boost heart health. Since it is a great source of mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), it brings down the bad cholesterol (LDL) and improves good cholesterol levels (HDL). 

  1.    Mustard oil reduces inflammation and has cancer-fighting properties 

Mustard oil has omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid which can play a role in bringing down the chances of certain types of cancer such as colon cancer. It contains a chemical compound – Allyl isothiocyanate which inhibits the chances of bladder cancer and is also anti-inflammatory. This compound helps fight free radicals and oxidative stress.

  1.    Provides protection against many infections

Black mustard oil has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. You can use it to cook, or apply it directly to your skin and hair, to fight numerous infections. 

  1.    Facilitates weight loss

Mustard oil contains diacylglycerol content and according to a study, that helps bring down bodyweight. The diacylglycerol acts as a natural cleanser and helps flush out toxins from the body. It further helps in activating our sweat glands which are indirectly important for weight loss. 

  1. Good for hair, nails, cracked heels, and skin

As kids, most of us were given mustard oil massages before our baths, especially during winters, and we wondered why this peculiar smelling oil is being rubbed on our bodies. This oil contains beta-carotene and Vitamin E content which addresses multiple skin and hair care issues such as dry scalp, wrinkles, dark spots, tanned skin, poor hair quality, and more.
