Try including natural sources of
unsaturated fats in your daily diet!

There are three main types of fats namely saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats. The unsaturated fats are known to be healthier and are much needed by our bodies. Whereas saturated fats are best to be enjoyed in small amounts or else they can be fatal for health.

If in your diet you replace saturated fats for monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, then both of these fats will help to decrease the cholesterol levels in the body. Polyunsaturated fats are good sources of omega 3 and omega 6 whilst monounsaturated fats are known to be rich in vitamin E, and antioxidants.

Polyunsaturated fats can be found in foods like seafood, a few vegetable oil, walnuts, Brazilian nuts and seeds.  As for monounsaturated fats they are present in foods such as olive oil, avocado, cashews, peanuts, almonds and hazelnuts. Whereas sources of saturated fats include animal meat, hydrogenated oils, whole fat dairy, animal bone marrow etc.

Presence of excess saturated fats will only put you at an increased risk for suffering from cardiovascular conditions, muscle inflammations and liver problems. So if you are looking to boost your health, aim to incorporate more of the unsaturated fats through natural sources and cut back on the saturated fat.
