I research everything, yet a few years ago when my yoga teacher told the class that canola oil was terrible for you and we all should be using grapeseed oil, I remember only researching canola oil. I determined she was right, canola was not very good for you. But I never researched grapeseed. So when I went to buy a new jar of Vegenaiase, the vegan version of mayonnaise, I bought what she suggested; the product composed entirely of grapeseed oil.
Now on my mission to clean out all bad omega 6’s from my diet, I finally looked up grapeseed. Wow, what a surprise! That oil has the highest amount of omega 6 polyunsaturated fat of any oil! It’s absolutely awful when it comes to inflammation.
Here I was, berating Evening Primrose Oil for its large amount of omega 6, (and mind you many people think it is a healthy thing to take and it just might be, I’m not an authority) but completely sabatoging myself with grapeseed oil!
This is a great site that offers a lot of good information on grapeseed oil, pufa (polyunsaturated fat) and omega 6. Take a look, it’s eye opening. And again, I don’t take only one person’s word for it. You can find this information on a lot of sites, this is just a good one.
So if you’d like to limit inflammation in your body, especially if you’re suffering from an inflammatory response like histamine intolerance, throw the grapeseed oil out! I have.
