Mustard seed is a very good source of the mineral selenium, a potent antioxidant that keeps skin looking young. It also contains substances called mucilage that soothe the digestive tract by helping to protect the mucous lining. This lining allows nutrients into the circulatory system, but filters out toxins, bacteria, and viruses. The anti-inflammatory properties support a smooth, blemish-free skin, and flexible joints.
