Most people are aware of the health benefits of including olive oil in their diet, but there are plenty of others, which you should also consider.
Flaxseed oil is a good source of omega 3, usually found in oily fish and rapeseed oil contains omega 3, 6 and 9, which are beneficial for joint, brain and heart health.
It can easily be substituted for olive oil in salad dressings for vegetarians and vegans as it contains far more omega 3.
Coconut oil can be fried, sautéed and baked and contains lauric acid, a type of fat which is beneficial in the treatment of viral and bacterial infections – it is also widely used topically in the beauty industry. Lastly, avocado oil is pressed from the pulp of the fruit rather than the seed, giving a buttery and slightly nutty flavor and doesn’t contain any cholesterol of trans fats. In France avocado oil has been granted prescription drug status for its ability to reverse arthritis.
