Black Dal or Masha (Vigna mungo)
You must have enjoyed the benefits of Dal Makhni as food to nourish the body. It is an extremely nutritious and enriching dal. But there’s more to Black Dal than titillating our taste buds!
With high levels of Protein (25 g/100 g), Potassium (983 mg/100 g), Calcium (138 mg/100 g), Iron (7.57 mg/100 g), Niacin (1.447 mg/100 g), Thiamine (0.273 mg/100 g), and Riboflavin (0.254 mg/100 g)- Black Dal is a strength provider for frail thin bodies, a natural anti-aging agent for mature skin and an unctuous moisturiser for the skin.
It is specially prized in Ayurveda and therefore qualifies as a key ingredient in this oil, making it more potent than any other lotion, emulsifier, cream or butter in the whole world!
In Ayurvedic text, 'Bhaishajya Ratnavali Vataroga Adhikara'- Mash Oil has specially been mentioned for Vata roga (or conditions occurring due to disturbed balance in Vata dosha) as it has all the properties to nourish the body inside out- right from nurturing the body tissues (Dhatus) to moisturising, beautifying and youthifying the skin.
