5 Health Benefits of Rapeseed

1. It is Abundant with Essential Fatty Acids

Rapeseed oil is loaded with omega oils which are typically sourced from in fish and fish products. Omega-3 fatty acid is among the finest nutrients that can benefit brain health. It does this by enhancing the permeability of brain cells, promoting their communication. Omega 3 is also a strong antioxidant, and is great for joint health as well.

Another Essential fatty acid is omega-6, which benefits the respiratory system, circulatory system and the brain. Studies recommend that we should be taking in omega-6 and omega-3 at a 2:1 ratio.

2. It is Abundant in Vitamin E

Vitamin E is present in a variety of foods such as peanuts, kale, spinach, almonds, sweet potatoes avocados, just to name a few sources.  It is worth mentioning however that plant oils are among the most abundant sources of this super antioxidant nutrient. Rapeseed oil is loaded with Vitamin E which is good for the eyes, skin, hair, as well as the immune system.

3. It is Low in Saturated Fat

A single tablespoon of olive oil has approximately 1.6g of saturated fat. Compare that figure to rapeseed oil which has less than half of that quantity at 0.7g. Although quite popular these days thanks to much publicity, coconut oil contains an enormous 12g of saturated fat in a single tablespoon. Rapeseed oil easily has the least measured levels of saturated fat compared to any other oil. This qualifies it as a heart-friendly, weight beneficial choice. Rapeseed oil also has rich quantities of polyunsaturated fat, a fat that has been observed to lower levels of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol).

4. Rapeseed Oil is Loaded with Phytosterols

If we eat foods that are loaded with phytosterols, we preserve the positive activity of our cells, thus helping our immune systems to function at optimal capacity.

5. It has no trans-fats, no artificial preservatives and is GMO free.

 

The food industry is ripe with food-like products with little to no nutritive value, posing a problem to people worldwide. With the addition of rapeseed oil to most households, it could easily eliminate the use of trans-fats that have been linked to a slew of diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome.
