Safflower Oil is a common cooking oil used in households. According to a research using Safflower Oil daily for 16 weeks helps in reducing risk of heart diseases.
In a study, researchers found that researchers found that a dose of safflower oil can improve such health measures as good cholesterol, blood sugar, insulin sensitivity and inflammation in obese postmenopausal women who have Type 2 diabetes.
Earlier a same research found that safflower oil reduced fat & increased abdominal muscles every day in this group of women after sixteen weeks of supplementation.
Through the different health measures that are improved by the safflower oil, which are linked with metabolic syndrome, a cluster of symptoms that can increase risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes, the chief researcher suggest that a daily dose of safflower oil in the diet – about 1 2/3 teaspoons – help in reducing the cardiovascular disease risk .
“The women in the study didn’t replace what was in their diet with safflower oil. They added it to what they were already doing. And that says to me that certain people need a little more of this type of good fat – particularly when they’re obese women who already have diabetes, “I believe these findings suggest that people consciously make sure they get a serving of healthy oil in their diets each day- maybe an oil and vinegar dressing on a salad, or some oil for cooking. And this recommendation can be extended to everyone.” said Martha Belury, professor of human nutrition at Ohio State University and lead author of the study.
