The palm fruit is one of the most multipurpose fruits in the world. Its benefits are so diverse you can make just about anything from it.
One of its top products is palm oil, and these are the benefits of palm oil.
Palm oil, like other vegetable oils, contains negligible levels of cholesterol.
Red or golden palm oils are the richest natural sources of carotenoids, including beta-carotene, a potent antioxidant and precursor of Vitamin A.
Palm oil products are naturally occurring sources of the anti-oxidant vitamin E constituents, tocopherols and tocotrienols, which are widely believed to play a protective role in cellular ageing, atherosclerosis and cancer.
Palm oil contains a mixture of polyunsaturated, mono-unsaturated and saturated fatty acids. Its composition is similar to that of the adipose tissue of most people on an ordinary diet.
Palm oil contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid, which favours absorption and availability for use in the body.
