Which fats are good for you? Coconut Oil 🥥 Vs Sunflower Oil 🌻

Coconut Oil is better than Sunflower Oil!
Coconut oil is the perfect healthy alternative to Sunflower oil

Sunflower oil is often regarded as a healthy option, however let’s take a closer look……

Sunflower oil (as well as Canola, Soybean, Corn and Safflower oil) is processed, so it’s not an organic and natural healthy oil. Refined oils have a more significant trans-fat content, and when it comes to fats, trans is bad!

Good and Bad Fats…

The Bad Fats

Refined oils, such as sunflower oil can lead to serious health issues, you really need to avoid them!
Vegetable oils, like Sunflower Oil may cause dangerous health issues!

Not all fats are bad, quite a few are absolutely essential for good health. Bad fats are trans fats and vegetable fats – these are typically the kinds you really need to avoid.

Bad fats (trans and vegetable) multiply our risk of morbid obesity, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Bad, bad and also very bad.

(I believe that we can probably add the ‘very’ to all 3 bads!)

Why are these types of fats so bad?

Because they are not natural. These kind of fats are actually vegetable oils which have passed through an artificial process that uses high pressured hydrogen and a number of chemicals to transform them from oils into fats.

Vegetable oils are very bad for our bodies. They may induce severe damage to the organs, in particular the lungs and reproductive process. Alarming stuff!

One study even claims that vegetable oils release poisonous cancer-causing chemicals.

Other research has shown that a diet which is rich in vegetable oils may result in toxicity of the liver, decreased immune system and even learning disabilities! All bad. Very very bad.

Now for some good news…

The Good Fats

Despite popular belief, saturated fats and cholesterol are in fact good fats, and our bodies need them in order to function properly.

What’s the answer? Stay away from using vegetable oils, like soybean, canola, sunflower, corn or safflower and instead go for natural oils, like coconut and krill.

Healthy oils will probably cost extra in the short term, but imagine the big picture. Isn’t your own long term physical health worth investing a few extra dollars? Besides, treatment for all those frightening medical issues caused by bad fats have an expensive price tag too!
