If you have been depriving yourself of your favorite foods because of their ‘deadly’ saturated fats you will be happy to discover that this may not be necessary.

For decades saturated fat had been directly associated with higher levels of heart disease and other serious health problems.

It turns out this association may be wrong!
Many studies now can’t find a connection between the two. For example a study published in the March issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that risk of heart disease or stroke were similar between people who consumed the highest and lowest amounts of saturated fat.

Some saturated fats are now known is be extremely healthy for you. Virgin coconut oil for example has been shown to increase the absorption of other good essential fatty acids and even helps you to lose weight. When we test for the best oils for individuals, often coconut oil comes up highly recommended.
