MUSTARD – WHY AM I CRAVING MUSTARD?
You may be craving Mustard because of deficiencies in various minerals or micro-nutrients.
Mustard can be considered a Super-food.
Mustard seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids as well as calcium, dietary fiber, iron, manganese, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, protein, selenium and zinc. Selenium is a nutrient that has been shown to help reduce asthma, arthritis and certain cancers. Magnesium also reduces asthma and lowers blood pressure. The effects of mustard are currently being studied for menopausal women and on migraine attacks.
Rosemary asked me this question:
I understand that different cravings can be a sign of deficiencies in our bodies; i.e. chewing ice = iron deficiency. I am desperately trying to uncover any such message that might be associated with my recent, and very strong mustard cravings. I am finding nothing on the subject of mustard. Can you help? Thank you.

Mustard has incredible properties. I am particularly interested in the fact that mustard helps with digestion, and can also speed up metabolism. This is wonderful news for anyone who is looking for natural ways to help with weight loss. Of course, it is important to use the mustard as close to nature as possible, so look for healthy mustard in your health food store.
