The Goodness of Fats
- 7 Months ago
There's the sin and then there's the saviour. A little bit of sin for the soul becomes the saviour, a little bit of poison becomes the nectar for health. Just like small quantities of alcohol, and good fats.
Good fat, available in oily fish, olive, mustard, flaxseed oils, nuts and seeds, protects our hearts by raising HDL, the good cholesterol. It keeps our brains calm and less jittery and helps regulate hormones in girls and women, hence keeping chances of putting on weight via hormonal imbalances away. Good fats keep PMS at bay, and can keep the flow of happy hormones and chemicals in the brain in full flow.
