Trans Fats, Trans Fatty Acids


There are four kinds of fats: monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fat, saturated fat, and trans fat.

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are considered the "good" fats.

Partial hydrogenation is an industrial process used to make an oil more solid; provide longer shelf-life in baked products; provide longer fry-life for cooking oils, and provide a certain texture. Partially hydrogenated oil, however, is laden with lethal trans fats. Hydrogenated oil was first commercialized as Crisco in 1909.

Trans fats have the double bonds between their carbon atoms in the trans rather than the cis configuration, which results in their having a more straight shape.

Trans fats occur naturally in the milk and body fat of ruminants (hooved animals that digest food in two steps, such as cows and sheep) at a level of 2-5% of total fat.

Both saturated and trans fats increase the levels of LDL cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol), trans fats also lower levels of HDL cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol), which increases the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD).

What's your next step?

The next step, after you have been diagnosed with a disease, is to find out what is the specific cause, and then choose supplements that address it. Phone consults are my specialty. Please call my at (239) 659-2684 to schedule a consultation.

The choice is yours

I recommend that you make an informed choice, and the goal of this web site is to provide you with the information to make a wise choice when it comes to your health and wellness.

As you can see, I don't sell any vitamins on this web site. There are thousands of vitamin stores that will sell you whatever vitamin you want, and many of them offer discounts.

If you are interested in some high-quality basic nutritional supplements, I recommend visiting the Store You will find my recommendations for a multiple, tasty chewable fiber wafers, high-potency probiotics, and fish oils.

Good luck in your journey towards health and wellness!!

Why don't you tell me what vitamins to take for this disease?

Unfortunately, that would be a clear violation of FDA regulations. Also, one of the most important aspect of naturopathy is: "Treat the person, not the disease". This is a profound statement, and many people have spent thousands of dollars on vitamins listed in books or web sites for a specific disease. This is what I call "vending machine medicine". It rarely works! The solution is to find a naturopathic physician, such as myself, to assist you.
