4 The Truth about Fats

The fact is: fats are essential nutrients.

That means they are essential to health. The brain and nervous system are 65% fat. The surface of every cell in our body is fat. Fats keep our skin healthy, support immune function, and lower the risk of diabetes. Our hormones are made from fat, and fats are carriers for vitamins and minerals. Good fats improve and normalize cholesterol levels, support a healthy heart, and are known to enhance the prevention of cancer. Fats are nutritional essentials.
