What was once believed to be the ‘heart-healthy’ choice, is now known to be extremely harmful to your health. Made from hydrogenated vegetable oils, margarine is packed with artificial colors and synthetic vitamins. During the manufacturing of margarine, vegetable oils are exposed to chemicals, bleach, hydrogenation, additives, and emulsifiers.

This process produces trans-fats, which have been linked to heart disease, decreased fertility, lowered immune function, and more. Raw, organic butter actually offers nutrients, especially when sourced from pasture-raised cows. When consumed in moderation, it is superior in comparison to any margarine or hydrogenated vegetable oil.
