What Are Saturated Fats

saturated fatSaturated fats are nonessential fats, because the body makes them easily from carbohydrate consumption, if they are not directly consumed. Your body requires significant amounts of saturated fat or particularly palmitic acid. Your nerve impulse would be much slower without saturated fats and these fats won’t turn rancid. These fats also allow varying degrees of rigidity in cells and tissues and they can also withstand extreme heat, much of the ingested saturated fat gets burned for energy. Furthermore, it has also been known from chemistry that saturated fats can’t form harmful by products.

The ideal high-temperature fat for cooking are saturated fats like coconut oil, ghee, palm oil and even lard contain high amounts of saturated fat. However, “organically” processed is the best, just like the food that you consume, you have to avoid eating processed foods because they are dangerous to human health. Food processing destroys all the essential food nutrients like Parent Essential Oils, protein and natural fats. The process itself could be dangerous to your health as well.

The notion that saturated fat causes heart disease was never based on science, no biochemistry or physiology, therefore this notion has been debunked. This is another 21st century “reversal”. It may have sounded good, but it is completely wrong. Saturated fats were commonly used in cooking decades ago, but misguided recommendations replaced good science and human health has drastically deteriorated as a result.

In conclusion, a meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD. There is no saturated fat in an arterial occlusion/thrombosis (clog). There are over ten different compounds in arterial plaque, but no saturated fat.
