As a rule, olive oil is considered the most useful. This oil is best absorbed by the body and that is why nutritionists recommend it especially to people who have stomach problems. This oil supports the work of the pancreas and liver. It is useful even for children because it helps in the formation of the nervous system, but also enables proper development of bone tissue. Due to its nutritional value, this oil is also called “liquid gold”. It lowers cholesterol, thus reducing the risk of heart disease, but also strengthens the heart muscle and improves the quality of hair and nails. All of this has been scientifically proven in a number of studies, but you should still be careful when using olive oil.

Oils can be liquid or solid, refined, unrefined and cold pressed. Whether the oil will be in liquid or solid state depends on the type of fatty acids that enter its composition. If saturated fatty acids predominate, they make the oil firm. This group includes lard and all fats of animal origin, butter, but also the cheapest palmetto oil. The presence of unsaturated fatty acids makes the oil liquid. These oils are generally healthy for the human body, but unfortunately, at higher temperatures they decompose, ie oxidize, and that is what is harmful.
