The Benefits of Mustard

Mustard is a spring crop that's very good for you. Mustard is a cruciferous family member, which includes broccoli and cabbage. Also known as cole crops, these plants produce enzymes and large amounts of vitamin C that protect your immune system. Mustard seeds are also a great source of selenium and magnesium, which are known to reduce inflammation.
