Study confirms anti-cancer compound Aurantiamide Acetate in mustard oil



HARIDWAR, 6 Mar: Patanjali has conducted pioneering research on Mustard seed oil extracted using the traditional Indian ‘Kolhu’ method. This study has been published in the renowned research journal, ‘Food Chemistry’, showcasing the presence of Aurantiamide Acetate, a known anti-cancer compound, in Mustard seed oil extracted using ‘Kolhu’ with wooden mortar and pestle. These exciting results demonstrate that ‘Kolhu’ extracted oil could have remarkable ability to prevent cancer and could aid in its treatment.

Swami Ramdev, commenting on this groundbreaking research, emphasised that this goes beyond mere investigations, representing a tangible manifestation of time[1]honoured Indian traditions. It unveils how diverse practices ingrained in traditional daily routines empowered Indians to combat various ailments, naturally. This research further reinforces the concept that true science does not always mean enormous machinery, but at times, seemingly simple techniques with the great potential to enhance the lives of people.

In India, Patanjali stands as the centre-stone for revitalising ancient traditions with modern scientific validation.

The Indian traditional heritage fostered a nature-friendly development that results in simple healthy lifestyle. This core concept of the centuries old tradition has now been substantiated by modern scientific validation and publications in international research journals. The nature-friendly tradition of extracting Mustard oil using ‘Kolhu’ not only has robust scientific merits; but also serves to conserve nature and revitalise home-grown cow-centric cottage industries, thereby generating local employment and promoting meaningful co-existence with the cows.

This research published in ‘Food Chemistry,’ supports the century-old practice of oil extraction using a wooden ‘Kolhu’, showcases exquisite scientific techniques, and paves the way for environmental protection, creation of numerous livelihoods through cottage industries, and the revitalisation of the cow-based industries to the mainstream of the nation
