‘Superfuel’ — Your Definitive Guide to Dietary Fats

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • The book, “Superfuel: Ketogenic Keys to Unlock the Secrets of Good Fats, Bad Fats, and Great Health,” delves into the science of dietary fats, providing specifics on how to discriminate between healthy and harmful ones
  • The inner membrane of your mitochondria contains a component called cardiolipin, which needs to be saturated in the marine-based omega-3 fat docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in order to function properly and prevent tumor formation
  • The marine-based omega-3 fats DHA and EPA are not just fuel. These long-chained omega-3s are actually key structural elements of all cells, including your brain cells
  • DHA is particularly crucial for your brain while EPA appears to be the most crucial component for your heart, and has been linked to a lower risk for heart disease
  • The American Heart Association recommends consuming 5 to 10 percent of your calories as omega-6 and the Dietary Guidelines recommend consuming up to 27 grams of vegetable oils per day. Meanwhile, research shows that when you lower omega-6 from over 5 percent to about 3.5 percent, cardiovascular problems and mortality are reduced by a 70 percent

Whereas my book "Fat for Fuel" details how to implement a cyclical ketogenic diet, my latest book, cowritten with James DiNicolantonio, Pharm.D., "Superfuel: Ketogenic Keys to Unlock the Secrets of Good Fats, Bad Fats, and Great Health," delves further into the science of dietary fats, providing specifics on how to discriminate between healthy and harmful ones.
