Mustard oils: Evidence based phytotherapy.
Phytotherapeutics must undergo the same clinical testing requirements as all other drugs: Marketing Authorization and clinical research demonstrating efficacy.
For mustard oils (isothiocyanates), extensive studies and investigations are now available for respiratory and urinary tract infections.
CGC is responsible, among other things, for the technical communication of this evidence, among others to representatives of professional societies, for example the German Society of Urology. In an intensive, open process, the study situation of isothiocyanates was put up for discussion with experts. CGC contributed to the inclusion of mustard oils in the S3 guideline “uncomplicated urinary tract infections” of the German Society of Urology.
