Derived from the fruit of the palm oil tree, red palm oil has a long history dating back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptian pharaohs used red palm oil for cooking and medicinal purposes.

Red palm oil has a wide variety of health and nutritional benefits. In fact, red palm oil has more anti-oxidant benefits than all other oils combined, including olive oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, almond oil, walnut oil, sesame oil, and coconut oil, just to name a few.

Two of the biggest health and nutritional benefits of red palm oil are its abundance of Carotenoids and Tocotrienols.

Carotenoids are extremely powerful anti-oxidant nutrients that help strengthen the body’s immune system and reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, and cataract. Carotene is the most active and important form of carotenoids found in red palm oil.

These natural chemical compounds give carrots, tomatoes, and other fruit and vegetables their distinct orange and red colours. Red palm oil is nature’s richest source of carotenoids, containing 15 times more carotenoids than carrots and 30 times more than tomatoes.

Tocotrienols are another form of Vitamin E and have significant cardio-protective properties. While tocotrienols can be found in rice bran, barley, and wheat, red palm oil is one of nature’s richest sources of tocotrienols.

Tocotrienols help improve blood flow to the brain and test-tube studies conducted over the last 20 years in the US, Canada, and Malaysia have shown that tocotrienols are very effective in killing cancer cells. The test-tube findings were so profound that researchers are embarking on clinical trials involving human cancer patients.

Using red palm oil as part of a balanced diet can have significant benefits for the heart by keeping arteries open.

During the course of our lifetime, plaque builds up on the inside of arteries. Typical saturated fats, such as butter or other oils, tend to promote plague build-up in the arteries, causing the blocking of blood flow.

On the other hand, while red palm oil is in a semi-solid state at room temperature, once inside the warm temperature of the body, it turns to liquid form and actually reduces the buildup of artery clogging plaque.

Studies have shown that people who’ve substituted other fats and oils for red palm oil have shown a 40% decrease in bad cholesterol after only 1 month of use.

Only 2 tablespoons of red palm oil per day are needed to benefit from the positive effects and red palm oil is an easy substitute for other fats and oils being used as spreads, salad dressings, and cooking oils. That’s 2 tablespoons your body will definitely thank you for.

    I wonder if Guthrie Group Limited still owned by British conglomerate, the so called palm oil activist won't spreading the propaganda about palm oil industry. Previously, Guthrie Group Limited was the largest rubber and oil palm producer based in Malaysia. Now, this largest plantation company was owned by Malaysian company and re-branded to Sime Darby Berhad after The London Dawn Raid 1981 launched by Dr Mahathir Mohamed and his team.

    Now, the European and American oil industry/companies spending money to influenced their users with false facts about the palm oil which is directly will be affecting the palm oil industry in Malaysia and Industry. I do not supporting the burning of rainforest by Indonesians company, but, to sabotage palm oil industry is not the right way. Just because some companies do not following the rules and the Indonesian government are very week to tracing or enforcing the laws.

    Most food product do not contain RED palm oil but ordinary processed palm oil, which does not have the health benefits, it is only cheap….
    Furthemore it contains extreme doses of saturated fats, far more than any oter type of cooking oil.
