Some experts believe that HDL removes excess cholesterol from arterial plaque, slowing its buildup. Rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids this oil is has been keenly blended to work well with any diet. This blend is rich in olive oil, sesame, and virgin coconut oil. Flavorful and with a slightly nutty flavor can be used for general cooking purposes, sauteing, baking or simply drizzled on your food.
