Fat is a necessary nutrient for optimal health and well-being. In short, our bodies need fat to function properly, and without a sufficient intake, many of our body’s processes would fail to function.
Fat not only serves as an energy source, especially effective over a longer distance, it is responsible for the construction of every cell in our body and the regulation of most of our bodily processes. The health of our cells and, therefore, our entire body, depends on lipid molecules (fats) that form the bulk of the cells surface membrane area.
