Nourishing Fats by Sally Fallon Morell
Not sure about the 'fat' debate? Nourishing Fats by Sally Fallon Morell will show you that fats aren't all bad; in fact we actually need good fats for our brain to work properly.
Studies have suggested that without vital nutrients from good fats, chronic disease, depression and mental illness are becoming more prevalent, and children who have a low fat and cholesterol intake have a lower IQ. Vision, skin health, fertility, allergies and obesity can all be helped with the inclusion of nourishing fats in our diet, providing vitamin K for heart health and strong bones. This is especially important for children as it helps normal formation of teeth and bones, and healthy brain development.
Nourishing Fats by Sally Fallon Morell will give you a quick look at the biochemistry of fats, explaining the difference between saturated, polyunsaturated, triglycerides and cholesterol, and how saturated fats are needed for optimal cell function, and can help protect us from chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s.
