I have a confession. I really don’t like going to the dentist. I don’t know if it’s the whirling equipment, weird smells, the painful injections, or not being able to have a conversation while dental assistants and dentists poke and prod my mouth. Without fail, my least favorite date circled on the calendar is always […]

It doesn’t matter if you’re a blond, brunette or a redhead. We all like having clean hair. But finding the right shampoo can be challenging. You want something to take the dirt and smell out of your hair, but you don’t want to strip out the natural oils our hair produces. Like most things in […]

USANA Test Kitchen: Rev3 Chicken Fajitas

I know what you’re thinking: Rev3 Energy® Drink in fajitas?! What kind of madness is this? It’s delicious madness—I promise. With so many recipes that use soda as a marinade or cooking agent, it just makes sense to try it with Rev3, too. (I’m partial to pork and Dr. Pepper, but it isn’t exactly healthy.) […]

My whole life, I’ve heard about these people that don’t like fruits and vegetables, and quite frankly, I’ve never understood it. For me, the fresh stuff on the plate was what I looked forward to. When I was researching my last blog post though, I was shocked to find out that some people eat zero servings of fruits […]

While most middle school aged kids are involved in a sport of some kind (i.e. soccer, basketball, baseball or football), most don’t possess the skills needed to continue on at a high school level. Even less can say they made it to a collegiate status. A fraction, the professional level. For USANA Brand Ambassador Austin […]

Imagine picking up a sport you’d never tried before and then competing in that same sport three years later on the Olympic stage. For most, that would be a far-fetched, nonsensical thought. For U.S. speedkater and USANA Brand Ambassador Brittany Bowe, it was a reality. Having recently wrapped up her best season to date, Bowe […]

Graisses alimentaires : les changements dans les recommandations des spécialistes

La science a beaucoup progressé depuis les mises en garde simplistes des années 1980 contre la consommation de gras.

膳食脂肪,專家建議的轉變

自20世紀80年代簡單化告誡美國人少吃膳食脂肪,科學已經有了長足的發展。 近30年才正式扭轉了膽固醇和脂肪攝入的一些建議,即使相對較強的證據,這些建議并不是基於目前科學依據。此外,與我們20世紀80年代的思維過程相反的是,它不只是簡單的「飽和脂肪是不好的」和「不飽和脂肪是好的」。 這完全是過於簡單化的思維,導致了熱帶植物油幾近從食品供應中消失,氫化植物油在食品供應中大規模使用(想一想反式脂肪)。事情真相是,不是所有的聚不飽和脂肪都是健康的,也不是所有的飽和脂肪都是不健康的。 同時,大多數專家對什麼是碳水化合物、蛋白質和脂肪的更健康巨量營養素比例也發生了轉變。長久以來的吃低脂肪和高碳水化合物的建議現已調整為略微增加脂肪並減少碳水化合物,達到兩者更平均的水平。 雖然大多數專家仍然認為植物來源的脂肪(主要是不飽和脂肪)應佔脂肪攝入的大部份,但一些研究已經表明,用聚不飽和脂肪或碳水化合物取代所有的飽和脂肪實際上可能會惡化心臟健康和患疾病的風險。 所以,事實證明大多數營養與健康有關的話題中,最好的建議是平衡和節制。 最新證據表明,飽和脂肪酸沒有產生內皮功能的負面影響,也沒有增加冠狀動脈心臟疾病的風險。內皮細胞是位於內血管系統的細胞,直接作用於凝血、血小板粘附、免疫功能,並控制血管舒張和血管收縮。內皮功能障礙被認為是動脈粥樣硬化發展的直接因素。 當談到穩定性時,飽和脂肪較聚不飽和脂肪有一大優勢。它們更不容易被氧化和酸蝕。但即使是最健康的聚不飽和脂肪一旦被氧化也會變得不健康。這對需要相當長貨架保存期的加工產品來說是真正的潛在擔憂。 不僅飽和脂肪更不容易被氧化,較新的研究還表明,飽和脂肪對HDL膽固醇(好膽固醇)比聚不飽和脂肪也有更積極的作用。 當涉及到的飽和脂肪時,可能需要許多年以後正式建議才能趕上科學,但證據越來越多。到那時,我們的使命仍是提供基於當前科學的最健康和最優質的產品。目前,科學認為應該獲得各種健康來源的脂肪,如堅果、種子、水果,和蔬菜(鱷梨,橄欖),而我們對飽和脂肪的迴避和恐懼(特別是來自於熱帶植物)在很大程度上是誇大和不必要的。 來源 -Nathalie Genevieve Puaschitz et al.
