Health Benefits Of Mustard Seeds

These spicy, aromatic, and fragrant seeds may be small, but their health benefits are great. Mustard seeds come in white, brown and black. The white leans more towards a yellow color and is mildest in taste. The brown has a bitterer flavor, and the black is the most pungent.

The seeds come from the mustard plant. You may not have expected it, but the plant is considered to be a vegetable related to broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage.

Mustard (Brassica)

Mustard seeds can be bought whole or ground. They provided manganese, selenium, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, phosphorus, tryptophan, carbohydrates, iron, calcium, potassium sugar, soluble and insoluble fiber, sodium, vitamin B complex, antioxidants, and then some.

The healing properties are enormous and so are the uses for mustard seeds. Mustard has been proven to fight and prevent gastrointestinal and colorectal cancer, it boosts the metabolism, stimulates blood circulation, lowers blood pressure, decongests blocked sinuses, relieves symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma, is an aid in treating of certain skin diseases.

It is also used for hair growth, to loosen up stiff muscles, to reduce the frequency of migraines, helps in the prevention of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease, restores normal sleep patterns in women having difficulty sleeping due to menopause.

I can totally relate to the latter. I can't remember the last night that was not interrupted several times by night sweats or simply waking up for no good reason. I make good use of those times. I pray and strengthen my faith! :-)

Luke 17:6
So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.
