Benefits of unsaturated fats
- They help lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL) levels and increase “good” cholesterol (HDL).
- They protect the heart and arteries from disease.
- They reduce arthritis symptoms.
- They improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
It must be taken into consideration that although they are called good fats, they still contain a high caloric level, so it is important to have control over the consumption of this type of fat, otherwise, we will also have serious overweight problems, as well as other diseases that may arise.
