Healthy oils

Written by Sebastian Pole

Fat can be healthy, you just have to pick the right ones. We will take you through the good and bad fats, and explain how fat can be incredibly important at maintaining our vitality.

Fat is good for you. That is a fact. The body absolutely requires good quality fat in the diet in order to process such fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, and K as well as to absorb protective phytochemicals (the colourful flavonoids and carotenoids) and certain minerals. It is essential for creating enough digestive enzymes. We need it to regulate hormone production. It gives us energy. It helps regulate our moods. It protects our organs. It keeps us warm. Our brains are 60% fat. Our nervous system, our brains, our eyes, our joints are all comprised in part from fat.
