Fats In Our System
Dietary fats are essential to give your body energy and to support cell growth. They also help protect your organs, keep your body warm, and help your body absorb some nutrients and produce important hormones.
There are four types of fats and have different chemical structures and physical properties. The bad fats, saturated and trans fats, tend to be more solid at room temperature (like a stick of butter), while monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats tend to be more liquid (like liquid vegetable oil).
The bad fats, saturated fats and trans fats raise bad cholesterol levels in your blood, where as monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats can lower bad cholesterol levels and are beneficial when consumed as part of a healthy dietary pattern. Consuming high levels of saturated or trans fats can also lead to heart disease and stroke
To avoid this, it is recommended that we replace the saturated fats and trans fats we consume with monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats – while still maintaining a nutritionally-adequate diet. How can we do that while enjoying our food? We carry many natural, high-protein nut butters that aid in this!
Available in multiple fun and delicious flavors, G Butter is a high protein, low calorie nut butter that can be used just like peanut or almond butter on bread, bananas, celery, or other foods. It can be spread on any baked good as a frosting, enjoyed straight out of the jar, and amazingly can be microwaved into a brownie in just 30 seconds!
Hank's Protein Peanut Butters
Spread is made with natural products, starting with a high quality split toasted / roasted blend of peanuts / almonds. We then add a high quality Whey Concentrate and Whey Isolate (Pea protein and Soy Isolate for vegan) combination to all our flavors.
MACADAMIA NUT OIL has a perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, 1:1. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate an equal balance (1:1 ratio) of linoleic acid (Omega-6) to alpha linolenic acid (Omega-3) essential fatty acids (EFAs). Junk food, rampant vegetable oil use, and the feeding of grain to food animals (even fish) have resulted in our current consumption ratios rising to a scary 20:1 ratio.**
MACADAMIA NUT OIL has an extremely high smoke point (410 degrees), which means it's excellent for stir-fry and baking. Olive oil has a much lower smoke point (325 degrees or less) and it degrades when used in cooking. MACADAMIA NUT OIL has a sweet buttery taste, is resistant to oxidation, and is extremely high in vitamin E (four times higher than olive oil) making it the ideal heart-healthy, performance-enhancing, fat.*
