One of the types of cooking oil that is used most frequently in this part of the world is called red palm oil. In addition to the numerous positive effects on one's health, one should also be aware of any potential negative repercussions. In this piece, based on data that were obtained from WebMD, we are going to take a look at some of the adverse consequences that can occur as a result of consuming palm oil on a regular basis or in excessive amounts.
1. Increases Your Cholesterol Levels
Because of its high concentration of saturated fatty acids, red palm oil is associated with an increase in blood cholesterol levels. This is often what takes place when palm oil is consumed over an extended period of time.
2. Slows Blood Clotting
According to some studies, palm oil can make it take longer for the blood to coagulate. Because of the reduction in the ability of your blood to clot, you put yourself at increased danger of passing away from even very minor wounds.
3. Can Cause Obesity And Insulin Resistance
According to the findings of several studies, consuming a large quantity of palm oil may raise the risk of developing insulin resistance and obesity. Palmitic acid, which is found in palm oil, inhibits both the oxidation of fat and the metabolism of fat.
4. Raise the likelihood that you may develop heart disease.
Palm oil contains saturated fats, which contribute to the formation of plaque in the arteries and increase the risk of developing heart disease.
