Nutritionist Albina Komissarova has explained what kind of oil is healthier coconut or Flaxseed.
In recent years it has become fashionable to apply coconut oil to the hair, to use it in its purest form and roast.
However, not everyone knows that coconut oil is 90% saturated fats, which are considered “unhealthy”. For example, in butter, this figure reaches 60%.
It is not proved that the consumption of coconut oil will protect a person from cardiovascular diseases. Have this product in moderate doses, but marked “virgin”.
Better to give preference to unsaturated fats like olive oil. Coconut oil is great for moisturizing.
The main mistake about linseed oil is that it is enriched with omega-3. This is a group of polysaturated fatty acids – EPA, DHA, ALA etc. Of these, EPA and DHA – ready and active, they are found in foods of animal origin. ALA is found in foods of plant origin and is an inactive form, a precursor of EPA and DHA.
The best source of omega-3 eat two servings of fatty fish a week, if you choose to Supplement, and not linseed oil.
