Dr. Alexander Rinehart, DC, MS, CCN, CNS 
http://www.DrAlexRinehart.com
Saturated Fats 
 Are saturated fats “bad” for you? 
 Saturated fats are diverse 
 3 Groups 
 Short-chain 
 Medium-chain 
 Long-chain 
 Each group metabolized differently by the body
Short-Chain Saturated Fatty Acids 
 Examples: Acetic Acid (C-2), Butyric Acid (C-4), 
Isovaleric Acid (C-6) 
 Commonly produced from fermentation of fiber in 
the colon 
 Healthy benefits for immune system & 
gastrointestinal tract
Medium-Chain Saturated Fatty Acids 
 Examples: Caprylic (C-8), Capric (C-10), Lauric (C- 
12), and sometimes Myristic Acid (C-14) 
 Sent directly to the liver & burned like simple 
carbohydrates 
 May be helpful with neurodegenerative disorders 
 Support weight loss, energy balance, and immune 
health 
 Do not negatively affect cholesterol or insulin 
levels
Long-Chain Saturated Fatty Acids 
Examples: Palmitic (C-16), Stearic (C-18) 
Found in animal products 
Lead to rise in Total Cholesterol, HDL and 
LDL. 
Raises HDL to a greater degree! 
Help add stability to hormones & cell 
membranes
Conclusion 
 Saturated fats are good for you and are not 
necessarily harmful unless combined with: 
 1. High Sugar Diet 
 2. Sedentary Lifestyle 
 3. Smoking 
 4. Man-made toxins in food, water and air 
 5. Trans fats 
 6. Insufficient Omega 3 fats (ex. Fish oil) 
 7. Genetic susceptibilities
