Millions of people use sunflower oil in their kitchens. Light weight, with a mild flavour profile and aroma, it is often used for frying and sautéing. Extracted from sunflower seeds, it is known to possess more Vitamin E than any other vegetable oil. Let’s explore the benefits of using organic sunflower oil below -
Sunflower oil is an all-purpose oil capable of withstanding high cooking temperatures. The high monounsaturated fat content makes sunflower oil similar to olive oil in terms of the health benefits that it provides. Choose one that is high in oleic acid, it has a longer shelf life and is well suited for folks who have issues like cholesterol or for someone who wants to switch to a healthier lifestyle.
There are a number of ways organic sunflower oil can be beneficial for your skin. Sunflower oil has high vitamin E content. Vitamin E is known to protect the skin from harmful UV rays of the sun and other pollutants in the environment.
The fatty acids present in sunflower oil can strengthen the body’s immune system, increasing its ability to resist infections. The fatty acids strengthen the membrane barriers of your skin too. This makes it increasingly difficult for any viruses or bacteria to enter your body.
Great Energy Levels
While saturated fats can make you feel lethargic, the unsaturated fats that are present in organic sunflower oil can keep you feeling energetic, active, and even satisfied for longer.
Helps with Digestion
Because of the absence of saturated fats, organic sunflower oil is very easy to digest and acts as a natural laxative, preventing constipation and aiding digestion. Eating foods that contain sunflower oil regularly can therefore make sure that your digestive system always remains functioning perfectly.
