Essential for proper functioning of the body, fats provide essential fatty acids, which are not made by the body and must be obtained from food. Fats are also an important energy source. Healthy skin and hair are maintained by fat. Unsaturated fats help to lower blood cholesterol if used in place of saturated fats.
