Functions of fats in the body

Fats are vital for absorbing fat-soluble vitamins and transporting them in the body.

They provide energy during physical activity or low energy intake.

Essential fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 are crucial for brain function, immune system regulation, and inflammation control.

Not all fats are the same.

Saturated and trans fats found in processed and fried foods can harm health when consumed excessively.

Unsaturated fats, like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, are healthier options.

Balancing different fat types is essential for overall health.

Incorporating a variety of healthy fats in your diet supports bodily functions, improves nutrient absorption, and enhances well-being.
