Healthy Oils for Cooking
Even though many oils can damage your heart, brain, and skin, there are many cooking oils that actually help you live a healthy lifestyle. Of course, one of the healthiest oils you can consume is olive oil, though you probably shouldn’t use this in your cooking.
Remember, 70-80 percent of the fat found in olive oil is monounsaturated, meaning that it’s relatively high in MUFA content, which lowers reactivity. In other words, it’s not the most ideal oil for higher cooking temperatures, despite its other health benefits.
Unlike oils that are processed from seeds, avocado oil is taken from the tree itself and includes many of the benefits that the fresh fruit does. Coconut oil boasts incredible benefits for your hair, skin, and cholesterol levels.
In fact, used in moderation, coconut oil can even increase bone strength, improve high blood pressure, and help regulate blood sugar for those suffering with diabetes.
