‘Superfuel’ – Your Definitive Guide to Dietary Fats

Joseph Mercola

The book, “Superfuel: Ketogenic Keys to Unlock the Secrets of Good Fats, Bad Fats, and Great Health,” delves into the science of dietary fats, providing specifics on how to discriminate between healthy and harmful ones

The inner membrane of your mitochondria contains a component called cardiolipin, which needs to be saturated in the marine-based omega-3 fat docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in order to function properly and prevent tumor formation

The marine-based omega-3 fats DHA and EPA are not just fuel. These long-chained omega-3s are actually key structural elements of all cells, including your brain cells

DHA is particularly crucial for your brain while EPA appears to be the most crucial component for your heart, and has been linked to a lower risk for heart disease

The American Heart Association recommends consuming 5% to 10% of your calories as omega-6 and the Dietary Guidelines recommend consuming up to 27 grams of vegetable oils per day. Meanwhile, research shows that when you lower omega-6 from over 5% to about 3.5%, cardiovascular problems and mortality are reduced by a 70%
