Mustard is a member of the cabbage Cruciferae family. It's been used as a healing herb throughout history and is one of the world's most ancient spices. Five centuries before the birth of Jesus, Pythagorus, the Greek mathematician and philosopher wrote of mustard's health promoting qualities. Mustard was used widely in China and Africa centuries earlier. Jesus immortalized mustard seed in His famous quote Matthew 17:19-21 where he says, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you."
Researchers have found vegetables of the Cruciferae family, including mustard greens, mustard seeds, daikon, horseradish, and wasabi (Japanese horseradish) contain important sulfur compounds. Research conducted at John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore found that the isothiocyanate compounds in these foods protect us by activating enzymes in the liver. The tocopherols in mustard are antioxidants.
