Oil oxidation

December 7, 2017by Sally Hammer, RD0

Even the healthiest of cooking oils can inflame our bodies after they have been oxidized by air and light. Keep cooking oil bottles closed when not in use, buy in small quantities (even if that means you pay a bit more for each ounce), store oil away from light, buy delicate oils (like olive and flax) sold in dark containers, and choose omega-3 supplements from reputable suppliers (if they taste or smell “fishy” they are oxidized).

Tip of the Day

Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms, or SNPs (pronounced “snips”), are slight variations in our genetic code that can occur during DNA replication. These variations may have no effect on our bodies or they may impact how we utilize nutrients and medications.

Nutrigenomics is the study of how the food we eat and supplements we take interact with our specific gene expression. It’s a major reason why there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all way of eating. With genomic testing, Sally can provide specific nutrition recommendations based off of your individual genomics. While you can’t get rid of a SNP, proper nutrition support can often help mitigate the negative effects of some gene SNPs like fatigue, brain fog, depression, poor digestion, and inflammation.
