hi guys its dr. Rey Hainish natural pharmacist and owner of illness is optional calm and I hope people like you navigate the oftentimes conflicting and confusing information out there surrounding health nutrition and lifestyle so today what we're going to talk about is what is the best cooking oil to use now I have a bit of a secret to tell you and that is I love sweet potato fries now I don't eat them often but when I do I want to make sure that they are cooked in the most healthy and natural way possible so what is the best cooking oil we're going to get to that in a second but before we do I have to tell you about the three different types of oils that are available to you the first one is the polyunsaturated fatty acids that things like canola oil sunflower oil soybean oil and they are considered by many health gurus to be the best oil to cook with but they would be totally mistaken in fact polyunsaturated fats should never be used for cooking because they become damaged and oxidized and can actually promote disease in the body not prevented so you want to avoid polyunsaturated fatty acids whenever you're cooking when you do use polyunsaturated fats put them on cold or prepared foods and they are considered healthy monounsaturated fats include things like olive oil Mac nut oil sesame oil peanut oil and those oils again are a little bit more stable than polyunsaturated fats but can still be damaged and oxidized during the cooking and frying process so you want to avoid using monounsaturated fats in your cooking and frying as well hands down the best oil to cook with believe it or not is saturated fat regardless of what you think you've heard or what the organizations like the American Heart Association have told you saturated fats do not cause high cholesterol especially when you use the healthy forms of saturated fat and there's only one saturated fat that I'm going to recommend that you use during the cooking and frying process it's the one I use myself recommend to my family and my patients and that is extra virgin coconut oil extra virgin coconut oil is a wonderful oil to cook with because number one it's comprised of what's called medium chain triglycerides that don't store as fat in fact research suggests that it causes weight loss not weight gain number two it is very very stable during the cooking process when you cook with saturated fat from extra virgin coconut oil it doesn't get damaged like the polyunsaturated fats and the monounsaturated fats do number three it has a very long shelf life and that speaks to the stability of the oil as well and number four it tastes fantastic everybody I've given this oil to has loved it and you will too so that's the story on the oils always choose extra virgin coconut oil whenever possible as a distant second choose monounsaturated fats like olive oil and never and I mean never use polyunsaturated fats in cooking add them to cold or prepared foods but don't cook with them if you've liked this tip please check us out on illness is optional com sign up for our free newsletter and we will alert you whenever we have a new tip that's been released thank you guys we'll see you then

  1. Cooking With Oils Healthiest Best Oils for Your Health
    : https://www.toevolution.com/blog/view/3341/cooking-with-oils-healthiest-best-oils-for-your-health

  2. You are not supposed to cook with Extra Virgin Olive oil because of it's LOW smoking threshold. If you cook it even in low heat, it will released bad chemicals you don't want on your food. Go for REGULAR Olive Oil, Avocado oil or even Grapeseed oil when cooking

  3. Coconut is high in saturated fat. Saturated fat stimulates the liver to produce cholesterol. The coconut oil industry has done an amazing job of fooling the public into thinking coconut oil is healthy.

  4. Don't agree with the doctor. Read the label, mine says low temp cooking only! Warning, don't heat up in a microwave oven, READ the label. But it is a good oil to add when boiling something like greens, beans, soups, chili's, etc. and of course, salads. However, I would never use it to fry with, burns too easy.

  5. Oh my Goodness .. eggs and coconut flavor is just so ultra gross it turned me off to even trying it with anything else… Waste of money !

  6. This video is so untrue! Saturated fats are extremely unhealthy! According to www.pritikin.com, saturated fat clogs your arteries and is the most damaging out of all fatty acids, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. And guess what? The fat in coconut oil is 92% saturated fat! Frequently cooking with this oil is pretty much a one-way ticket to the hospital!

  7. SO GLAD SOME OF THESE PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABLUT.. I WILL ADD TO COOK ON LOW HEAT SINCE "HIGH HEAT" WILL TURN MOST OILS INTO TRANS FATS, WHICH ARE OF COURSE NO GOOD FOR US !! SO LIVE & LEARN THE TRUTH !! R E A D !!

  8. Is refined coconut oil bad for you? I don't like when food tastes and smells like coconut. I heard that non hydrogenated lard is also a healthy choice.

  9. What can I do if I don't like the coconut taste? I have extra virgin coconut oil cold pressed but it still tastes like coconut.

  10. GREAT INFO! THANK YOU. I DON'T COOK MUCH WITH OILS BUT WHEN I DO, I WILL ALWAYS USE WHAT YOU RECOMMENDED. HAVE AN ANSWESOME DAY!!

  11. Coconut oil dried up my skin so bad and it my face started breaking out so bad 😭😭😭😭😭

  12. I see other videos that say coconut is high in saturated fat an causes high cholesterol. Confusing

  13. I cook with this oil it's great the only downside is everything I cook taste like coconuts, if it didn't have a taste at all It would be the perfect oil.

  14. Vitamin D….to supplement or not to supplement? What's the deal with Vitamin D…I am learning that it blocks a copper transport enzyme (called the blue blood in french)….however some say it is recommended to take with vitamin K2? I really like the new copper information by Morley Robins but the the K2 information by Dr Berg is good as well.

  15. thank you!  Very helpful and informative and . . . .short and to the point.  Thank you for not going on and on and on and boring me to freaking death.  Will watch all your videos!!!!

  16. you need to watch your own videos before listing them and think of what you say. you say health goorews say the oils are the best to cook with then say they are wronf as they are not healthy but you miss understand they do not say or clame they are the healthiest they are saying they are the best cooking oils and that is true they give a better crispy tecture to food and are less oil retentive. but as far as the oil that is the healthiest the only oil we no of that has not bad affects of eating to much is avocado oil.

  17. What would you call the 2nd best oil to cook with to coconut oil? I don't have any coconuts around here. What about safflower oil? Thanks!
