Olive Oil:

Extra-virgin Olive oil lowers harmful cholesterol levels while raising the good.



Sesame:

May help lower blood pressure, reduce bad LDL cholesterol, and increase good HDL. Ideal for stir-fries or Asian-flavored dressings and marinades.



Coconut:

New research suggests that virgin coconut oil may actually reduce harmful LDL cholesterol levels, despite its high saturated fat content. Excellent substitute for butter in most baked-good recipes. I also use it instead of oil when frying. My biggest benefit, however, is in using it instead of commercially available body creams (which often use chemicals, stabilizers, preservatives, artificial colors / flavors / perfums). I am amazed at how much it improved my skin tone. It gives my skin a healthy sheen. I can't say enough good about it. My sister started using it and called to tell me that she was "accused" of having had a facelift. Nowadays, I add a few drops of Essential oils (Patchouli, Rosmary, etc.) and it gives me the most luxurious body treatment available (and yet at a fraction of the cost of 'unhealthy' commercial body creams).
