|Health benefits of pure sunflower oil |
Pure sunflower oil has gained a immense popularity among the vegetable oil owing to the unique health benefits. Different grades of sunflower oils with differing amount of saturated fatty acids are available in the market. Among them, the pure sunflower oil has the lowest amount of saturated fatty acids and other impurities, which makes it the healthiest vegetable oil. The health benefits of the pure sunflower oil are discussed in this article.
Saturated fatty acids are known for producing the low density lipoprotein (LDL) that is also known as a bad-cholesterol. Increased LDL levels in the blood are the major factor that can lead to fatal cardiovascular problems like heart attack and stroke. In a well designed clinical trial, it was confirmed that people consuming sunflower oil instead of saturated oil have lower LDL levels with decreased risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Pure sunflower oil is rich in the natural antioxidant, particularly Vitamin E. The protective role of antioxidants against blood pressure, diabetes and aging is well established. Apart from this, vitamin E also acts as a phytonutrient and keeping the brain in healthy condition.
