Guys, honestly… “heart-friendly” is probably the last thing on your mind when you reach for the cooking oil in your kitchen shelf, am I right? It probably isn’t any wonder considering how health buffs give it a bad rap all these years. Well, I guess it’s high time to set the record straight once and for all…
So, while some cooking oils put your cardiovascular health at risk, there are actually others that provide essential good fats that our bodies need. Yup. It’s true! In fact, there are even some cooking oils that reduce your risk of having coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular ailments.
One of the healthiest oils in the market that nutrition experts recommend is canola oil. This type of cooking oil contains heart-healthy nutrients called phytosterols — an all-natural plant extract that can reduce your body’s cholesterol level by up to 15 percent. This type of product is, thankfully, now being offered here in the Philippines (Yay!) — particularly by leading oil brand Golden Fiesta by NutriAsia.
Phytoserols – The key to a good heart
No hard sell here, folks. Just the truth. And if you’ve been following me here on my blog and on social media, you know that I take health very seriously. That’s why I feel strongly about sharing this bit of news to you.
Golden Fiesta Canola Oil is a rich source of the cholesterol-reducing phytosterols. Scientific studies and trials show that consumption of two grams of phytosterols per day has the potential of diminishing the risk of coronary heart disease, which is one of the leading causes of death worldwide.
According to the 7th DOST-ENRI Nutrition Survey, Filipinos become vulnerable to heart disease as early as age 20 due to unhealthy diets and an increasingly stressful work environment.
Bear with me as I get a tad technical… you see, the claim that phytosterol-containing food may reduce the risk of heart disease, as sanctioned by the United States Food and Drug Administration (USDA), bolsters the benefits of consuming Golden Fiesta Canola Oil, the substantial phytosterol contents of which help ease the intestinal absorption of dietary cholesterol and facilitate the excretion of biliary cholesterol in the feces.
Golden Fiesta Canola Oil – The best way to Phytoserols
Made from the seeds of canola flowers, Golden Fiesta Canola Oil is also rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6, which are also beneficial in lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and some types of cancer when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
Compared to other vegetable oils, canola oil has a low level of uric acid, glucosinolates, and saturated fatty acids and bad fats, making it one of the healthiest and more widely used oils in the market.
So, the next time you visit the supermarket, choose the cooking oil that is best for your heart. Pick NutriAsia Golden Fiesta Canola Oil not only because I told you so, but also because it truly is right (and healthy) choice.
You need only remember this — NutriAsia Golden Fiesta Canola Oil is a good source of phytosterols. Two grams of phytosterols per day may potentially reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Here’s to living not just a long life, but a healthy one at that.
