Healthy Cooking Oils: Boost Heart Health, Circulation & Libido
Oils and saturated fats have gotten the blame for cardiovascular disease for years.

The truth is, the number-one cause for heart disease (and memory loss) is consumption of sugar and refined carbs, such as flour, white rice, and white potatoes. 

Fats have been proven to be beneficial in many areas of health, including lowered blood sugar levels and reduced inflammation.

The trick is to consume oils in an appropriate manner.

Avocado oil is great for cooking. Not only does it have a high smoke point (520 degrees Fahrenheit), but it's known for improving many aspects of your health.

Other oil options that can withstand a high smoke point include nut oils and ghee (clarified butter). 

If you're using sesame oil, coconut oil, or extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), keep them at low to medium heat. 

Listen in as Steven Masley, MD, joins host Lisa Davis to explain the health benefits of oils, as well as other foods that provide for healthy circulation, boosted libido, and a strong heart (beets, oysters, spinach, shrimp).

He also shares some of his favorite recipes that utilize these oils.
