Polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)

Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid (PUFA)

If you think that – “My health is good as I am consuming vegetable oil” – No – It does not work that way. PUFAs are present in unsaturated vegetable oils and too much consumption can cause more harm to body by decreasing metabolism. Polyunsaturated fats – like all fats – contain nine calories per gram, which means if you consume PUFA in moderate quantity it works better. If not, it has negative effect! They can reduce ATP level which is nothing but source of energy for metabolism. The less energy (ATP) you produce, the slower your metabolic rate, the fewer calories you burn.

What you need to do?

PUFA is present in canola, soybean, peanut, safflower, sunflower oil, and others oils. If you are consuming these oils – look at the labels and add to food accordingly.
