Fatty Acids 101

Description

Fats are an essential part of any healthy diet.  Several types of fatty acids play critical roles in numerous cellular processes that include the inflammatory cascade, phospholipid bilayer composition and transport, and PPAR activation.   Each fatty acid has its own window of biological and/or physiological compatibility.  Excessive levels or a deficiency of one particular fatty acid generally compromises human health in one or more ways.

Despite the growing body of evidence that fats are not only well tolerated at higher levels but may be required for optimal health (2018 PURE Study), there is still a significant amount of resistance and confusion within the clinical community.  Join  John Bagnulo MPH, PhD and Katherine Wohl RD, LDN for an in-depth discussion on the role of fatty acids in health and improving clinical outcomes.  Discover why saturated fats are supportive of optimal health and why they are still misunderstood.  Learn how food processing and different cooking methods can significantly influence the effect that specific fats have on health. Identify those sources of dietary fat that provide physiological balance in today’s food supply.
