Palm oil
« on: October 16, 2012, 07:13:03 pm »
Am I right that palm oil is the best choice for cooking and that even one table spoon daily is beneficial for our health in general including erectile function? I refer here to high concentration of all eight forms of vitamin E in the palm oil. Namely, apart from four forms of tocopherols, it also contains all four forms of tocotrienols which are much rarer in food and thus very difficult to get in sufficient quantities through diet. The palm oil is one of rare exceptions.

Well, palm oil is very interesting because its high in mono and saturated fat.  Now the conventional wisdom is that these are good for testosterone (in the short term):


I don't completely buy into that, but that's a big subject.

I'm not a big fan of Palm Oil, because I'm a Low Fat guy.  A Low Fat Diet may lower testosterone a little, although it is debatable according to one study, but the benefits are mind-boggling:


I'm a big propenent of what will help in the bedroom and saturated fat will slow down your blood flow significantly after a meal.  Now, if you are a young guy, you can eat that much saturated fat and probably not notice the difference.  But many middle-aged men, after a big saturated fat meal, will be hurting unless the exercise or have had walnuts, etc.

In addition, I don't even like to consume a lot of polys or monos either as the former leads to increases oxidation and latter to increased arteriosclerosis. 

But I realize that all of this is quite religious and I'm not trying to anger anyone.  I'm just giving you a fresh perspective that you may not have heard anywhere else...

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
