When we were developing our Energy Pods, we wanted to know how various types of fats changed the composition of the product itself and how they would impact the body in the long run. In this podcast, we look at heart disease, obesity, cancer and various chronic condition and how Omega 6 fatty acids and various fats impact humans and animals. It also explains why we preferably use Ghee & MCT Oil which are saturated fats in all our products.
