Good Fats vs Bad Fats for Natural Health

When discussing good fats vs bad fats for natural health, I want you to know that ALL living things contain fats and oils, and that includes lettuce. This is because all living things have cells and cells have a fatty membrane (phospholipids) that surrounds and protects them. To test me on this, allow a piece of lettuce to dry out (from its water content) for a day on your kitchen countertop and then go back and feel the lettuce leaf. It will feel greasy to you.

Good Fats vs Bad Fats

All cells are made up of tinier sub-units called “little organs (organelles)” that are designed to fulfill specific functions. These tiny sub-units are also protected by phospholipids, or fatty acid membranes, which are the protective skin of the cell.

About 20-80% of the total cell weight (depending on the cell) is comprised of phospholipids. Red blood cells have 45% phospholipids and 55% protein whereas nerve cells, which are very delicate, have a much higher level (80%) of phospholipids and only 20% protein. So you see, without cell’s protective membranes, we would quickly perish.

The good fats not only make up the membranes that surround each of our cells, protecting them from damage and premature death/mutation, they also control and influence a wide array of body functions. In fact, loss of good fats in the diet have been proven to cause cancer, heart disease, all autoimmune diseases, blood clots, allergies, bad skin conditions, digestive disorders and all illnesses involving swelling, pain and inflammation.

But ask any ordinary person and they will tell you that they have NO IDEA what a good fat vs. bad fat is. To most people all fats are BAAAAD!!!!!

How did we get to the place where we believed that all fats are BAAADDD? Advertising of course!!!! Processed, nutritionally deficient food is cheap to make and delivers high profits. Natural almonds and walnuts are far less profitable than an air filled bag of cheap potato chips. The virulent toxins produced from high temperature frying of the potato chips (in pesticide laden, hydrogenated cottonseed oil) will stop your heart, but the almonds will keep your heart healthy and pumping strong for a long time. Not to mention keeping cancer at bay…. so it’s been profits before people…. for a very long time…

So it’s up to you to learn to choose healthy fats that will keep you lean and strong….don’t depend upon the lobby ridden government to tell you, or the poor overrun doctor’s office during a five minute visit….you had better find out for yourself!!

And before I give you list of good fats vs. bad fats, don’t expect your taste buds to suddenly revert back overnight…. advertisers have spent billions to develop their market and I would not be surprised if they told us subliminally in commercials that natural foods taste bad, or aren’t enjoyable or satisfying. When it comes to making billions, anything’s possible.

But we can make the decision to live well and not die at their hands for the sheer sake of money…. we can choose wisely for ourselves…

Good Fats That Promote Health and Prevent Disease

Super-Unsaturated Omega 3 Family:
  • Alpha-linolenic Acid (LNA) found in flax seed, hemp seed, canola, soy beans, walnuts and dark green leafy vegetables such as romaine lettuce and spinach. Flax seed is the richest source of Alpha-linolenic Acid. Flax seeds can be bought in little sacks from virtually any grocery store and kept tightly sealed in a container in the refrigerator. Sprinkle on salads, cereals, or in cups of fruit laced yogurt. LNA is involved in energy production. Like all Omega 3, a deficiency of LNA is strongly linked to the development of heart disease and cancer.

  • Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) found in the oils of cold water fish, such as trout, salmon, mackerel, sardines and tuna. Our bodies use EPA to make Series 3 prostaglandins, which control many inflammatory processes. People suffering from any kind of pain or cancer are low in Series 3 prostaglandins.

  • Stearidonic Acid (SDA) is found primarily in black currant seeds and some wild seeds. SDA is being carefully studied in its role in preventing and treating hormonally rooted cancers such as breast cancer, ovarian, testicular and prostate cancer.

Polyunsaturated Omega 6 Family:
  • Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA) is found in the highest concentrations in borage oil, followed by black currant seeds, followed by evening primrose oil. Mother’s milk has traces of GLA.

  • Dihomogamma-linolenic Acid (DGLA) is found primarily in mother’s milk and infants receive DGLA during feeding that their bodies turn into Series 1 prostaglandins which are critical (life long) for many bodily processes.

  • Arachidonic Acid (AA) is found in meats and animal products. The level of blood sugar is intricately involved in whether or not AA plays a beneficial or harmful role in the body. Series 2 prostaglandins are produced from AA and without Series 2 we would die. Many illnesses are the result in the imbalance of AA and a disruption of Series 2 prostaglandin production.

  • Linolenic Acid (LA) is found in sunflower, safflower, pumpkin, walnut, soybean and hemp oils. Sunflower and safflower are the richest sources but when seeds, which are genetically modified, are grown, the LA content in the oil is much lower than natural seeds, so GMO (genetically modified organism) foods are essentially dead foods. LA is also very involved in energy production. A deficiency of LA can result in high blood pressure, high Triglycerides, sticky platelets, dry skin, fluid retention (edema), and all tissue inflammations.
Mono-Unsaturated Omega 9 Family:
  • Oleic Acid (OA) is found in olive, almond, avocado, peanut, pecan, cashew, filbert, and macadamia oils. Butter also contains OA.
Mono-Unsaturated Omega 7 Family:
  • Butyric Acid (BA) found in butter, is used by beneficial flora in the intestines, as food and to manufacture natural antibiotics that poisons invaders. Butter is also one of the few oils, that when heated, retain its active beneficial constituents.

  • Palmitic Acid (PA) found in tropical oils such as palm, coconut, and palm kernel and are being studied for their role in supporting thyroid function, arthritis, metabolism booster, and easing the symptoms of autoimmune disorders.

  • Stearic Acid (SA) is found in shea nut butter, mutton, cocoa butter, pork and beef. Shea butter and cocoa butter have been used for thousands of years to calm inflammatory skin conditions.

Bad Fats That Promote Disease and Hasten Death

  • Trans-fatty Acids-Found in margarine, shortenings, and hydrogenated oils are very poisonous to the cells of the body, especially heart cells because heart cells rely upon essential fatty acids for fuel. Margarine and hydrogenated oils have been stripped of anything beneficial and destroy critical enzymes during their difficult digestion process. The body also has to further use enzyme stores to combat the widespread tissue inflammation caused by trans-fatty acids. Ask anyone with arthritis what margarine and hydrogenated oils do to their pain and swelling and they will be quick to tell you.

  • Rancid Oils-Found in processed, packaged foods, such as bakery, frozen foods, fried snack foods, commercially baked cookies, cakes, etc. Rancid oils are highly toxic to tissues because they contain potent levels of cell destroying free radicals. Important levels of vitamins and nutrients are burned up trying to neutralize these potent free radicals producing widespread deficiencies in the cells.

  • Hydrogenated oils-Used in every processed food and found in most oils sold in supermarkets are extremely damaging to cells because they change the permeability of cells making them leak and vulnerable to being intruded upon by toxins, viruses and bacteria. The membrane shield of the cell is damaged and can lead to cancer as the weak cell divides. Hydrogenated oils also greatly promote allergies and allergic reactions to food as the cells fill up with toxins that alert the immune system that something has gone very wrong. Hydrogenated oils are implicated in the loss of brain function and memory as brain cell function (normal neuron activity) is impaired by the “short circuiting” caused by hydrogenated oils, which are chemically altered fats. The brain uses good fatty acids for fuel.
So now that you have been to school with me, what can you do? Focus on eating the nuts seeds and oils that promote good health. Store them in the refrigerator to avoid rancidity Consciously avoid all bad fats as much as you can.

And if you are too busy, you can look into taking Essential Fatty Complexes which must be replenished daily. Keep them refrigerated.

Here are a few good choices:
  • NSI Complete EFA (Fish Oil, GLA, Flax, EPA , DHA) -Total essential fatty acid complex to meet all your daily needs.

  • NSI KriaXanthin Antarctic Krill Oil with Natural Astaxanthin 1000 mg - 60 Softgels targeted for heart and brain health

  • NSI Mega EFA Omega-3 EPA & DHA to combat high inflammatory and pain conditions

  • Natrol Omega-3 Glucosamine Advanced Joint Care -- 90 Softgels specifically for arthritis

  • Nordic Naturals Omega Woman -- 500 mg - 120 Softgels – womens heart and hormone health
