EM: The fatty acid structure in fish oil is made up in triglyceride form whereas krill oil's fatty acid structure is made up in phospholipid form - which is the same type of fatty acids found in the human body.
Coconut oil differs from other vegetable oils because it is a "medium-chain triglyceride" which are broken down and burned faster than long-chain triglycerides such as vegetable oils and animal fats.
Cinnamon and blood sugar levels have been in the news ever since the first studies appeared linking an intake of cinnamon and reduced blood sugar levels, triglyceride levels, and cholesterol levels.
Interesting to note, unsaturated fat consumption has been shown to lower high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, both known to be caused by a high saturated fat dietary intake.
A definitive diagnosis of high cholesterol, however, ideally includes measuring LDL, HDL, total cholesterol, and triglyceride levels, as well as the cholesterol to HDL ratio.
People who own dogs have lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels than people who don't, and you are less likely to die from a heart attack if you own a dog.

In people with certain medical conditions, isotretinoin may increase the amount of triglyceride (a fatty-substance) in the blood.
The conversion of the glycerides (triglycerides) into fatty acids and glycerin must be looked upon as a reaction which takes place in stages, one molecule of a triglyceride being converted first into diglyceride and one molecule of fatty acid, the diglyceride then being changed into monoglyceride, and a second molecule of fatty acid, and finally the monoglyceride being converted into one molecule of fatty acid and glycerin.
