DID YOU KNOW? Mustard and its uses

DID YOU KNOW?
If you Consume a spoonful of mustard, it can take away your
leg cramps..


It even helps when you get leg or foot cramps in bed.

"Cramps can be caused by a deficiency in acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter that stimulates muscles to work. Mustard contains acetic acid, which helps the body produce more acetylcholine".
players get leg cramps in this kind of weather and they just take a spoonful of mustard and the cramps go away.

Work out too hard and now have some achy muscles? Mustard can help in a variety of ways, depending on the muscle pain

 Mustard-infused bath...If you're hurting all over, try a mustard-infused bath. Combine 2 tablespoons of mustard and 1 teaspoon of Epsom salts in your warm running bath water. Mustard will amplify the therapeutic effects of the salts, relieving you of muscle pains at a much faster rate than bathing with them alone. Leisurely soak in the bath for about twenty minutes to relieve minor muscle aches and pains. After your mustard bath, be sure to shower off to avoid the lingering scent of mustard on your skin. Unless you're into that, of course.

 Soothing mustard foot bath...Feet exhausted from a long day of standing? Make a soothing mustard foot bath! Combine 1 tablespoon mustard in a pan of warm to hot water. Stir the water well to completely dissolve the mustard, and dip those poor puppies in. This will leave your hands free to do more exciting things, like consume a sandwich.

 Lower back pain? Pulled some some strange muscle that you didn't know you had? End the agony by making a mustard paste for these targeted sore muscles. Combine powdered mustard seed and all purpose flour in a bowl (1 part mustard seed to 2 parts flour) and slowly stir in warm water to make a paste. Spread the mixture on one side square of cheese cloth and fold. now place the plaster on the ache, securing it with a bandage. Leave the plaster in place for no more than 20-30 minutes at a time, and feel those aches and pains just float away.

 Burn Relief...Whether it is a severe burn or a minor burn, it hurts like heck and the pain just won't go away.

Step 1, put the burned part of your body part under cool, running water. This will relieve some of the pain right away and will help to stop the progression of the burning.

Step 2 is probably the best, and least known remedy for throbbing pain from burns: ordinary mustard. There is something special (magic?) in everyday yellow mustard that quickly takes away the pain. Just spread a nice and thick layer of mustard over the area and go about your Iron Cheffing. You'll find that the pain goes away almost immediately.
