5 Oils that can heal your body

Using an adequate amount of the right kinds of fats and oils can play a pivotal role in slowing down the ageing of your body.

Good fats provide the body with fuel alongside the feeling of fullness. These can also stimulate fat burning.

Studies show the value of supplementing our diet with additional essential fats to prevent and treat a broad spectrum of diseases.




Distinguishing good fats from bad fats can be tricky, so here are the top eight healthy fats and oils, reports

Coconut Oil:

 It has rightly earned the title of a 'superfood' and it is consumed in large amounts by some of the healthiest populations around the world. It is also brilliant for those looking to lose or maintain their weight. The fatty acids in coconut oil have been shown to speed up overall metabolism, helping people expend more energy compared with long-chain fats.

It can also help with neurological disorders and can significantly benefit common skin issues. It also helps in reducing scars and marks on the body.

Pumpkin Seed Oil: 

A great one for both men and women, research has found that it can significantly help improve prostate health due to its richness in zinc, and also help women with menopause as it can decrease blood pressure, hot flushes, headaches and other menopausal symptoms.

Avocado Oil: 

This is known for its skin-boosting effects. In addition to its nourishing, moisturising and protective fats, it also contains significant levels of antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, which help keep skin supple and smooth.

Omega 3 Fish Oil:

 Arguably the best type of fat, the fats produced by oily fish contain the highest concentrations of Omega 3 fatty acids which is proven to make a positive difference to heart and brain health as well as improving the skeletal system.

Olive Oil: 

It is an integral part of the traditional 'Mediterranean Diet' which is associated with vitality, longevity and low incidence of chronic disease. Olive oil is prized for its health-promoting properties and is particularly helpful in promoting optimal cardiovascular function, maintaining good blood flow and bettering cognitive function.
