When inflammation is present in the body, it will slow down the natural healing process and can cause many other complications and side effects. Lucky for us, we have gardens filled with thriving herbs and plants that have historically been known for their amazing anti-inflammatory properties.
When most people hear the word “mustard” the first thing that comes to mind is usually something like, “hot dog”, but mustard isn’t just a condiment meant for decorating our plates at the tailgate party.
The mustard plant is a great well-kept secret of the garden. Its leaves and seeds are both rich in essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. This plant is also a good source of fiber, not to mention all the vitamin A, C, K and folate.
We particularly love the mustard plant for the glucosinolates in them that regulate our detox enzymes and their ability to help eliminate harmful toxins from the body.
Mustard has even been known for its protective emetic qualities that can help the body cleanse from narcotics and alcohol.
