Blood lipids are a bit high, do you eat some oil?
Not long ago, the physical examination revealed that the blood lipids were a little bit high. The doctor told me to pay attention to daily diet and strengthen exercise.
I want to ask, how to eat healthy oil is healthier?
It is generally preferred to consume vegetable oil in patients with hyperlipidemia and coronary heart disease.
Vegetable oils fall into three categories: the first category: saturated oils such as coconut oil, palm oil, and high levels of saturated fatty acids in these oils, which are often elevated in blood cholesterol levels.
This type of oil should be reduced in the diet.
The second category: monounsaturated oils include peanut oil, rapeseed oil and olive oil. These oils have higher levels of monounsaturated fatty acids and they do not change blood cholesterol levels.
The third category: polyunsaturated oils such as soybean oil, corn oil, sesame oil, cottonseed oil, safflower oil and sunflower oil, these oils have higher polyunsaturated fat content, which can lower blood cholesterol levels.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids are mainly of the two types of omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids.
Most omega-6 fatty acids are linoleic acid found in such vegetable oils as described above.
Therefore, patients with hyperlipidemia and coronary heart disease should be supplemented with vegetable oils that replace polyunsaturated fatty acids.
