HOLLYWOOD(Perfect Skin Today)2/15/13/—February isn’t just for chocolate hearts and valentines, its American Heart Month — a time set aside to raise awareness about heart health and preventing heart disease. This February, be good to your heart and consider some easy alternatives to your diet that improve Heart Health.

Simple changes like cooking oil can have a great impact on your life. For instance, olive oil benefits have been touted for many hundreds of years. Even more recently, coconut oil has become all the rage. But, whatever oil you choose – whether it’s olive, coconut, almond, canola, peanut, safflower, walnut, or even avocado oil – none compare to the powerful nutritional virtues of virgin organic Red Palm Oil.










This oil is regarded as a sacred healing food by many civilizations, including the ancient Egyptians, crude or virgin red palm fruit oil should be regarded as one of the most nutritious edible oils in the world. Virgin organic sustainable red palm fruit oil is otherwise a bona fide miracle food. The red color of the palm fruit oil is what is attributed to its high content of carotenes, which include beta-carotene and lycopene. These powerhouse antioxidant nutrients are the same ones that give tomatoes and carrots and other fruits and vegetables their rich red and orange colors.








American Heart Month battle on cardiovascular disease and offers to educate Americans on what we can do to live heart-healthy lives. Heart disease, including stroke, is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. These diseases, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers, claim more than 865,000 American lives a year.

Over the past two decades, researchers have intensely studied red palm oil’s effect on cardiovascular health and the preliminary results initially baffled scientists. Kept at room temperature, this semi-solid oil seems as likely as lard to clog your arteries. But what might shock you to learn, as it has equally stunned researchers, is that although red palm fruit oil is indeed high in saturated fat, it actually protects against heart disease. Studies show that adding palm oil into the diet can remove plaque build-up in arteries and, therefore, reverse the process of plaque and prevent blockages.

Nothing ages us faster than being overweight, where traditional fats and oils like margarine, or other vegetable oils take a long time to break down for energy and are eventually stored as fat, red palm oil goes straight to liver and ignites metabolism. That means you’ll burn calories from fat much faster.

By now, you’re probably asking yourself, 1. How do I identify organic palm oil, 2. How can I use organic red palm oil, 3. Where can I get red palm oil ? Red Palm Oil signature quality is it’s consistency, please look for a palm oil that is deep red, with a consistent texture. Its taste should be nutty with butter feel to it that leaves no after-taste. Red Palm Oil can be used like most cooking oils with fresh meats or vegetables sautéed or as Dr Oz suggest in Oatmeal. You can find Red Palm Oil in local African specialty markets or buy online.
