PALM OIL HEALTH BENEFITS AND MINERALS

Posted in COOKING OILS HEALTH BENEFITS AND MINERALS

HEALTH BENEFITS:

Studies have found that unrefined palm oil plays a role in promoting your cardiovascular health. In one study published in the British Journal of Biomedical Science, it was reported that despite the high levels of saturated fat in palm oil, the oil did not contribute to atherosclerosis and/or arterial thrombosis.8 Researchers suggested that this is due to the ratio of saturated to unsaturated fats in the oil, as well as its rich nutrient profile.

The tocotrienols found in palm oil also helps support the heart against stress, suggesting its protective properties against heart disease. Other cardiovascular benefits associated with palm oil consumption include:

Improved blood circulation

Regulated cholesterol levels

Reduced free radical damage and inflammation

Reduced blood pressure

Studies suggest that palm oil’s antioxidant properties help it fight various types of cancers. According to findings, tocotrienols exhibit their potent antioxidant properties and aid in inhibiting the development of skin, stomach, pancreas, lung, liver, breast, prostate, colon, and other cancers. Regular vitamin E cannot perform this.

Palm oil’s antioxidant supply is also found to help prevent neurological degeneration by stopping free radicals that damage brain and nerve tissues, and promoting circulation, which increases your protection against diseases like dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other mental conditions.

Additional evidence also states that palm oil can help strengthen immune function and promote bone, eye, oral, lung, skin, and liver health.

As a fat-rich oil, palm oil helps provide energy and enhance the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, and E.
