A new 12-month human clinical study involving 577 participants conducted in Malaysia reveals we aren’t doing our hearts any favors by eating a high-carb diet. And while that high-carb diet was associated with increased heart disease risk factors, fat intake didn’t move the needle one way or the other.
Nutrition expert Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS told FOX News viewers in Cleveland why the high-fat keto diet works, and why better-for-you fats such as Malaysian palm oil are good choices for keto diet followers.
The Malaysian Palm Oil Wildlife Conservation Fund worked with the wildlife department to establish this organization which supports conservation efforts along with rescuing endangered wildlife. Their highly trained rangers have completed more than 100 rescue or translocation operations.
Tropical oils may also have some health benefits. Malaysian sustainable palm oil has a unique fatty acid profile, plus natural antioxidants such as vitamin E tocotrienols and carotenoids. Palm oil is also naturally trans-fat free.
Educational and promotional efforts, focused on educating users about Malaysian palm oil’s wholesomeness, sustainability and eco-sensitive agricultural practices, are also driving the industry’s growth.
