Butter is better for your brain! Yes, butter provides the brain with the nutrients it needs: Cholesterol: The highest concentration of cholesterol occurs in the brain, where it plays an especially important role in memory formation.

Seniors with the highest cholesterol levels have the best memory function. Cholesterol also plays a major role in regulating serotonin levels in the brain — low cholesterol levels are associated with depression, anti-social behavior and even suicide.

Saturated Fats: The brain contains high levels of saturated fats, both in the cell membranes and in the mitochondria. Arachidonic Acid: Eleven percent of your brain is composed of arachidonic acid AA , a type of omega-6 fatty acids found exclusively in animal fats like butter. A supply of AA is critical to neurological development in the infant.

Vitamin A plays a key role in vision and all sensory perception. Butter is an excellent source of vitamin A. Vitamin D is critical to neurological function and protection against depression. Butter provides vitamin D. Vitamin K supports neurological function and learning. Butter provides vitamin K. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acids especially concentrated in the brain.

Know Your Fats: The Complete Primer for Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and Cholesterol

Discarding politically correct notions that saturated fats are unhealthy, Dr. Mary Enig presents a thorough, in-depth and understandable look at the world of lipids.

Virtually all other titles on fats and oils currently in print are either too technical to be accessible by the layman, or are too error-laden to be worth the paper they are printed on. Mary Enig made her mark in the nutritional world in when she and her colleagues at the University of Maryland published a paper in Federation Proceedings that directly challenged government assertions that higher cancer rates were associated with animal fat consumption. Enig and her colleagues concluded that the data actually indicated that vegetable oils and trans fatty acids—not saturated fats—were the culprits for the rising incidence of both cancer and heart disease.

Besides outlining the biochemistry of fats and oils, the book gives a spirited defense of saturated fats and a no-holds-barred expose of trans fats. Mary Enig has been instrumental in exposing the dangers of trans fats to the public. She is a co-founder of the Weston A.

Her main points may perhaps be stated this way: The body has uses for all the variety of naturally occurring fats and oils in food. Some natural fats and oils have special health benefits.
