Fat is not essentially bad for us, but when we eat too much of the wrong types of fats, one can become more prone to developing a range of health problems, including stroke, diabetes, heart attacks and clogged arteries.
Oils are our body’s main source of EFA’s, essential fatty acids. The Human body can not produce these EFA’s itself and relies totally on them being consumed. EFA’s are used by cell membranes for protection and stability and also for the production of certain hormones and other chemical messengers like prostaglandins.
By denying your body these essential fatty acids you are making yourself more susceptible to infection, unable to heal properly, more uncoordinated and less mentally acute creating confusion and brain fog.
Oils are also a great source of Lecithin. Lecithin helps to prevent cholesterol build-up while making bile flow easily to prevent gallstones. It also serves to evenly distribute anti-oxidants within cell membranes.
Dietary intake of omega 3 essential fatty acids is woefully lacking all around the world. A new study reviews the multiple mechanisms by which omega 3 fatty acids, especially DHA, can combat the obesity epidemic. It is now recognized that the health of your white adipose tissue combined with the health of your liver are of vital importance to the metabolic efficiency that enables you to metabolize calories and not gain weight. In what might be called “nutritional elegance” the omega 3 fatty acids are vital to multiple aspects of fat metabolism and a lack of them drastically impairs your liver and white adipose tissue from functioning normally.
