The Benefits of Canola Oil

Fried food can damage our body in many ways. Too much fried food can cause diseases such as coronary heart disease, fatty liver, indigestion, hyperacidity just to name a few. If we can't get rid of fried food then at least we should know the best cooking oil to use. Did you know that Phytosterol in canola oil reduces the risk of coronary heart disease? Because not all cooking oils are the same, and not all of them are harmful to your body. It is best to know the right kind of cooking oil for you.

Benefits of Canola Oil



Scientific studies show that there is actually a heart-healthy nutrient found in canola oil, which lowers one’s bad cholesterol (LDL) level and minimizes one’s risk of acquiring coronary heart disease and hypertension. Canola oil is a cooking oil that you can use for frying without jeopardizing your heart health.

Benefits of Canola Oil

Canola is extracted from grapeseed, which is low in uric acid and glucosinolates. Thus, while canola oil is characterized by a low level of harmful saturated fatty acids, it has substantial amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids, which are touted to have positive effects on cardiovascular health through the regulation of plasma lipids and proteins.

In 2006, the US Food and Drug Administration declared that “eating about 1½ tablespoons (19 grams) of canola oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to its unsaturated fat content.”

Research published in Nutrition Reviews further reveals five studies that compared canola-based diets with typical Western diets and found evidence that canola was able to reduce total cholesterol levels by an average of 12.2%. This cholesterol-reducing action is made by possible by canola’s phytosterol content.

Phytosterols, like sterols and stanols, are natural plant-derived compounds that are structurally related to cholesterol. Studies have shown that an intake of 2 grams per day of stanols or sterol reduce low-density lipoprotein by 10 percent.

The USDA has also acknowledged that plant sterol or stanol is generally recognized as safe by manufacturers, and has authorized them to claim that foods rich in phytosterol may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease - one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality, not just in the US but in the rest of the world.

Indeed, years of scientific evidence have increasingly bolstered the status of canola oil as one of the healthiest oils we can ever use. This explains why canola is the third largest vegetable oil produced after palm oil and soybean oil, and is also the second most consumed cooking oil in the United States.



There are many brands in the market and one is NutriAsia Golden Fiesta Canola Oil that is a good source of phytosterols. Two grams of phytosterols per day may potentially reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Are you also using canola oil in cooking?
