The truth about oils – must read

I see so many teenagers opting for a oil free or no oil diet and it is alarming for me,  it is a general misconception that eating natural oils with meals make you fat, this all started from 1970s  on recommendations at the behest of refined oil manufacturers and continued till the turn of the century, refined oil or oil generated from palm oil is not good for you, so if you are reading this and have not done it already, eliminate refined oils and include natural oils in your diet
Also, recent research  suggest that healthy oils in diet actually help in aiding weight loss , thus originated the ever famous #ketodiet … so most people are confused with dietary fads coming every now and then

Ayurveda the eternal science on dietary wisdom distinctly enlists the reason of including oils ( mainly sesame seed oil and coconut oil ) in your diet, also use of oils to treat specific disorders, therefore it is advisable to follow a science that has always stood up to test of time

4.they promote strength (Balvardhana) and reduce risk of strokes, depression and neurological disorders
5. They maintain help hormonal balance , prevent PCOD &PCOS , prevent infertility(yoni vishodhana)
