Health benefits of Canola oil:
The Canola plant’s seeds used for the making of this product are a fine source of heart-healthy fats that are one reason the Canola oil is among the healthiest cooking oils. Another reason is the fact that this kind of oil has the less saturated fat content of any other oil used in the USA – 7%, as it has no trans-fats.
Canola oil contains 2 essential fatty acids that your body can’t produce on its own – Linoleic acid (LA) and Alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), both of which are polyunsaturated. The first one is a vital omega-6 fat that’s necessary for the good brain function and proper growth of children. The second is a vital omega-3 fatty acid that protects against strokes and heart-attacks by lowering the bad cholesterol (LDL) and ensuring clean arteries.
The omega 6 : omega 3 proportions are very important because too drastic difference between the two can increase the risk of having some serious diseases. The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in canola oil is 2:1 which is nutritionally perfect for the human constitution. Other beneficial fats that are present in Canola oil are the monounsaturated fatty acids that also help decrease the bad cholesterol and balance the blood glucose levels. This helps prevent diabetes.
Organic canola oil is a good source of vitamin E. A single serving of Canola oil provides you with a quarter of the recommended daily intake of vitamin E. This vitamin acts as an antioxidant that prevents the body’s proteins and fats from free-radical damage. Studies point that it may also lower the possibility of cancer, memory loss and a coronary artery disease.
