Nutritional benefits - Virgin sunflower oil is very important to our diet because it contains a large percentage (65%) of linoleic acid. This fatty acid is said to be essential as humans cannot reproduce it. So we have to take it from our food. In our body, linoleic acid is transformed into a series of longer and more unsaturated fatty acids. The latter intervene in most of our bodily functions. They play a structural role at the heart of our cell membranes and are also the source of the biologically active prostaglandins that regulate the cell metabolism. Virgin sunflower oil is used in diets that aim to prevent cardiovascular diseases and lower ''bad cholesterol''. In addition, their rich, essential fatty acid content has a beneficial effect on the skin.
