According to a new study, seed oils are best alternatives to lower your Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol, called LDL. The study suggests that one should exchange saturated fats with unsaturated fat.
The team constructed a network meta-analysis showing how different oils and solid fats have in fact been matched up. Lukas Schwingshackl, a researcher said, “The beauty of this method is that you can compare a lot of different interventions simultaneously and, in the end, you get a ranking. You can say, this is the best oil for this specific outcome.”
Fats like butter and lard are the worst choice, while best alternatives are oils from seeds. He said, “sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, safflower oil and flaxseed oil performed best.”
The full finding was published by the Journal of Molecular & Cellular Proteomics.
