Vitamins A, D, E, and K
are fat-soluble, meaning they can only be digested, absorbed, and
transported in conjunction with fats. Fats are also sources of essential fatty acids, an important dietary requirement.
Fats play a vital role in maintaining healthy skin and hair,
insulating body organs against shock, maintaining body temperature, and
promoting healthy cell function. They also serve as energy stores for
the body. Fats are broken down in the body to release glycerol and free fatty acids. The glycerol can be converted to glucose by the liver and thus used as a source of energy.
Fat also serves as a useful buffer towards a host of diseases. When
a particular substance, whether chemical or biotic—reaches unsafe
levels in the bloodstream, the body can effectively dilute—or at least
maintain equilibrium of—the offending substances by storing it in new
fat tissue. This helps to protect vital organs, until such time as the
offending substances can be metabolized and/or removed from the body by
such means as excretion, urination, accidental or intentional bloodletting, sebum excretion, and hair growth.
While it is nearly impossible to remove fat completely from the
diet, it would be unhealthy to do so. Some fatty acids are essential
nutrients, meaning that they can't be produced in the body from other
compounds and need to be consumed in small amounts.
