Hello, my name is Dr. Julia Tatem-Hunter of Holistic Dermatology. And I'm here to talk with you about the metabolism of dietary lipids. Dietary lipids implies the lipids that you eat, and that very much matters because number one, how does your body handles those and the more dietary lipids you eat and the sort that you eat is very important with how your body handles them, both genetically and intestinally. Dietary lipids are the lipids that you eat. They're monounsaturated and polyunsaturated it come from vegetables and it come from nuts; olive oil. Then, there are the trans fats which are the bad synthetic fats, avoid those. And then, there's certain animal fats that are saturated fats, those are not all bad, it depends on what the animal was fed, which is why you eat wild fish and why you eat grass-fed animals, if you're eating that sort of protein. So, what happens is it hits your stomach, hydrochloric acid is essential in order to start breaking it down and then it goes into the small intestine, where the pancreatic enzymes and where the enzymes where the small intestine cells bring in the small chain and the medium chain fatty acids, and then the long chain fatty acids have to be taken in through the lymphatics. When they're taking into the lymphatics, they become what's called a chylomicron. And a lipoprotein is wrapped around that, it's taken into the liver, it's then turn into very low density lipoprotein and then the, the body turns it into low density lipoprotein which is what's called bad cholesterol. Now, the liver can become saturated with too many fats if you're eating more, too much, is what it will stand to, and then what it does is it turns it into, it, it turns it into bile in order to get rid of it through your intestines. You can get gallstones when the liver is overwhelmed, when the enzymes aren't working well, when you're eating the wrong mix and that's where you get gallstones. So, the body's either storing it in the fat cells in the liver, it's getting rid of it in the bile and it can cause gallstones if you're getting too much; it can cause diarrhea if you're not absorbing it well because you've overwhelmed it.
