CORN OIL For Weight Loss
Corn oil has been used in Peru for thousands of years. It is easily extracted from the corn kernels and is a good general-purpose cooking oil. Corn oil is a good source of vitamin E and it provides a small amount of vitamin K (1.9mcg). Corn oil is a rich source of omega-6 (50mg) but it does not supply omega-3. A combination of half corn oil with half flax oil would provide a balance with the omega-3s, as flax oil provides only 15g omega-6 and 58g omega-3. The corn-flax oil combo would be as good as oil gets when obtained cold pressed. Corn oil is exceptionally rich in phytosterols (968mg), more than wheat germ oil (553mg) and olive oil (221mg). Most other oils supply either no phytosterols or only a small amount.
Phytosterols are recognised to block cholesterol from entering the bloodstream plus they have been shown in clinical research to reduce symptoms of an enlarged prostate, reduce inflammation in cases of rheumatoid arthritis and help control blood sugar levels with diabetics. Ideally, make a salad dressing from cold-pressed corn oil, add a dash of vinegar and flax oil, and reap the benefits, including the good supply of vitamin E and omega-6. Corn oil on its own is too rich in omega-6. An excess of omega-6 can interfere with the functions of omega-3, as they both compete for enzymes to manufacture other essential fatty acids. Corn oil is ready to combine for numerous benefits; cob onto them!
