6 Essential Fats & Oils Your Client Needs In Their Diets

Infographic of 6 Essential Fats & Oils Your Client Needs In Their DietsHealthy fats and oils are an important part of every diet. While some fats and oils work against us by increasing our cholesterol, some help prevent the buildup of artery-clogging cholesterol and can even help promote heart health. Of course, it’s important to teach your clients about the differences between healthy and unhealthy oils, and how to portion them out. Fats and oils can be high in calories, so portion control is critical. Here are our favorite oils and fats to educate your clients about:

  1. Avocados
    Avocados are among the healthiest fruits. Their abundance of monounsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol, while promoting good cholesterol levels. They have more protein than any other fruit, and their folate content is great for expectant mothers. Additionally, avocados contain high vitamin E quantities, they can help prevent damage from free radicals, act as an anti-aging nutrient for skin, and boosts immunity.
  2. Walnuts
    Walnuts are not only tasty; they’re nutritious! Walnuts may boost the speed at which you process information, improve your memory, and increase your concentration. One ounce of walnuts each day provides more than 100 percent of the RDA of alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid.
  3. Almonds
    Almonds are an excellent diet food. Studies show that only one serving per day can help dieters shed belly fat and decreased LDL cholesterol. Almonds are also high in protein and fiber and contain healthy unsaturated fats that help satiate your appetite.
  4. Coconut Oil
    Coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids, which are burned quickly by your body before they are stored. This fast burning property gives you almost immediate energy. Choose virgin or extra virgin organic coconut oil over processed, because processing destroys the natural acids that contain all the health benefits. It also is a great hair and skin conditioner.
  5. Olive Oil
    Olive oil is a health powerhouse. It contains high levels of monounsaturated fats, which reduce the incidence of heart disease. Its abundance of antioxidants protects cells from chronic inflammation. Its anti-inflammatory properties help improve memory and cognitive function. Always use extra virgin olive oil, buy in dark bottles, and look for the seal from the International Olive Oil Council.
  6. Krill
    Krill oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, one of the most important nutrients in your diet. Krill oil lowers your triglyceride levels and LDL cholesterol, while it raises HDL cholesterol and fights inflammation in your blood vessels. Its anticoagulant properties help prevent blood clots in the arteries, a leading cause of heart attacks and strokes.

Educating your clients about these healthy oils and fats is important to their diet and is a wonderful way to control their cholesterol. However, if you want an added boost to help protect their cardiovascular health, adding CardiaSlim® to your supplement regimen can give you an edge.
